After the pit stop at Gadi Sagar Lake, we went to see the cenotaphs at Bada Bagh, a short way out of town. Bada Bagh is Hindi for “big garden.”
Cenotaph is a derivative of a Greek word and means “empty tomb.” At Bada Bagh, there are a large group of chhatris built as cenotaphs, memorials to local rulers whose remains were either interred elsewhere or perhaps whose ashes were scattered in a river.
The garden was built in the 16th century. I’ve been unable to find a reliable source stating when the cenotaphs themselves were erected.
