The Mool Sagar is a small garden and tank which is located at a distance of 8 kms from the main city of Jaisalmer. This tank belongs to the Royal family of Jaisalmer and was actually built for serving the purpose of a cool summer retreat. The garden was originally built by Maharawal Moolraj II and he built the Moolsagar complex too in the year 1815 AD. As you visit this pleasant place you will be able to see many wells, apart from the Moolsagar Garden and a very impressive Raj Mahal which was built on its premises too.
Maharaja Moolsagar wasknown for his love for art and artisans too and that is quite obvious as you will notice great murals on the palace walls. It was because of his love for art and architecture that one can find a lot many numbers of lovely palaces and structures which were all built in that period. The art was to a very large extent influenced by both the Mughal and Rajput schools of art.
