Tourists can also view the sand dunes and the drylands from these cenotaphs. This garden was originally built for Jait Singh III, for his cenotaph, by his son Rawal Jait Singh III. But over the years, cenotaphs of the royal family members were also added to the original cenotaph. The Bada Bagh cenotaphs of the royal family were built with the help of sandstones and the design was carved into it.
According to history, Jait Singh was the Maharaja of the Jaisalmer state and his son built a dam across his cenotaph. Therefore heavy greenery could be seen across the Bada Bagh. Garden and Cenotaphs were later built beside the artificial lake near the Bada Bagh. There is an incomplete Cenotaph present at the Bada Bagh, it was meant for Maharaja Jawahar Singh. Post the Independence of India, the construction of cenotaph stopped and has not been finished till date. The Bada Bagh is located on top of a hill and tourists travelling from Jaisalmer to Ramgarh can view this garden on the way. Therefore, tourists who are visiting Jaisalmer and Ramgarh should definitely visit this garden.
