It is a prime place for cenotaphs. The first graveyard is that of Maharaja Jai Singh who was the founder of Jaisalmer and ruled from 1688-1743 and then the tradition of building graveyards started around the 17th century and continued till the 20th century. The cenotaphs here are of various sizes and standing mainly in two rows. The more powerful the king, the bigger will be his cenotaph. There are a cluster of cenotaphs all in a similar style, open pavilions with pillars when you stand in the arch of one and look at the other cenotaphs, you can feel as if the family members may still be looking at each other and talking to each other from their personal rooms.

The windmills near those cenotaphs appear as if they are providing the much-needed air to those living here. A white marble plaque inside the cenotaph, below the dome, tells about whom it belongs to and most of them are shown riding on the horse. There are plates outside, maybe put by the Rajasthan tourism department to tell which one belongs to whom. The latest one dated sometimes in the early 20th century is incomplete because the tradition was stopped after independence. We can notice a water pitcher in front of a particular cenotaph that is usually put in front of the last person to come here and is meant to quench the thirst of the soul.

The reason for discontinuing the construction of chhatris was because it was considered to be bad luck after the son Jawahar Singh died who was suffering from disease during the construction of the chhatri of his father. You can also see the Jait Bandh which is a magnificent structure with dimensions pertaining to a length of 1200 ft and a width of 350 ft.
