Create an itinerary including Bada Bagh
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. Put Bada Bagh at the forefront of your travel plans using our Jaisalmer road trip planning site.

  • The architecture is beautiful. Good place to take photographs. Entry fee is high (100 rupees) for this monument because the monument is not that big. Please do not get guide. He will just explain for 5 minutes, take 2-3 pictures and will leave. I don't know whether every guide is like this, but my guide Raju was like that. Hope others are also like this. He asked for 200 Rs and got 100 rupees from me.
  • Very beautiful and spiritual place. You won’t get much around it so get some food and water along with u. Its a heritage place with beautiful landscapes. Whenever someone of royal members dies, their last rites happens here so please mind your behaviour here. Otherwise, its open for all, with minimal ticket amount of 150-200 INR you can even bring the camera and capture the beauty the place.
