Bada Bagh, Jaisalmer

(3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Soak up the contrasting atmospheres conjured by the regality and starkness of Bada Bagh, a former garden and set of royal cenotaphs. Once lush and green as a result of a dam, today the sandstone structures rise from reddish sand, rather than verdant grass and other plant life. Started in 1743, the site hasn't been added to since Indian independence. The interesting historical garden gives the impression that the desert is trying to reclaim its sandstone, or the whole site is seemingly growing out from the ground. Make Bada Bagh a part of your Jaisalmer vacation plans using our Jaisalmer travel itinerary maker.
