Bada Bagh or Big Garden is located 6 km from Jaisalmer on the Ramgarh road. During the 16th century, this garden was commissioned by Maharawal Jait Singh and was completed by his son Lunakaran. This garden includes a tank and a dam, along with a Govardhan Stambh (pillar).The pillar was constructed for commemorating the construction of the nearby tank and dam. Locals refer to the dam as Jait Bandh, while the tank is known as Jait Sar. The Jait Bandh is a huge structure measuring over 1,200 feet in length and 350 feet in width. Both the tank and dam has been constructed using solid blocks of stone.Bada Bagh is also famous for the Cenotaphs or the monuments that were built by numerous Bhatti rulers. Cenotaphs are also known as chattris and one cenotaph is erected for each ruler. The cenotaph of Maharawal Jait Singh (1470-1506) is the oldest of all. The building of cenotaphs was discontinued in 1947, when a prince died due to a mysterious disease.Rickshaws and cabs are available for reaching this garden near Jaisalmer.
