“Great Cenotaph of royal family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

This beautiful set of cenotaphs is just a few kms from Jaisalmer fort. We had rented car and visited the site along with other attractions in the vicinity. This is highly recommended to anyone visiting Jaisalmer. Tip: It can get very warm in summer time. So carry a bottle of water with you. Their is nothing like any shop or source of any things.nice sunset. Again: experience of both tourists and locals would be improved if a major clean up was done.

“Bada Bagh, the cenotaphs of the Jaisalmer Royal Family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

This beautiful set of cenotaphs is just a few kms north of Jaisalmer fort. We had rented a scooter from town and visited the site along with other attractions in the vicinity. This is highly recommended to anyone visiting Jaisalmer.

Tip: It can get very warm in summer time. So carry a bottle of water with you.

Here is a link from my blog with pictures of Bada Bagh.

“Unbeatable pictures, no tourists in early AM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

We went to Bada Bagh at about 7AM and no one else was there to enjoy the great scene. Even though this is just a royal cemetery without anything much to read, it's worth it for the great pictures. Even if you aren't a hard-core photog, you'll feel compelled to try to capture this unique site. Allow about 30 min for a visit.
