The founder of the state and Maharaja of Jaisalmer state, Jai Singh II (1688-1743), descended from Maharaja Jaisal Singh, built a dam in the 16th century to make a water tank during his reign. Due to this dam, the desert area became green.
After the death of Maharaja Jai Singh II on September 21, 1743, his son, Lunkaran, constructed a beautiful garden near the lake and an umbrella for his father (Jai Singh II) on a hill near the lake. Later, many more monuments were built here for the Lunkaran and other Bhatis kings.
The Mausoleum of King Maharwal Jait Singh is the oldest monument here. And the last umbrella is of Maharaja Jawahar Singh, which has not been completed after 20th-century dates and Indian independence.
