Rajasthan Desert Tours

In the shimmering radiance of the Thar Desert, the glistening sandstone has prominently moulded Jaisalmer into a desert wonderland. Once Jaisalmer was a formidable desert land, but today it's a place of inlaid magic. The sunset has got a particular glow over here and as the night descends - the Golden City glows with a peculiar flavour.

The best places to look around are Lodurva, which is the ancient capital of Jaisalmer. 'Toran' or the ornate arch at the main entrance and Jain temples stands as an indication to its ancient tradition. Another point of attraction is the divine tree, 'Kalpataru'. Amar Sagar is an amusing place, beside a lake with mango and other fruit trees. Enchanting the aura are the mildly carved temples.

Bada Bagh is a place admist densely grown trees and a gushing stream are the royal cenotaphs with elaborate carving on the ceiling and ethnically patterned images of former rulers on horse back. Sam Sand Dunes is the closest place for a visitor to become a signatory to the total sandy desert. The Wood Fossil Park contains round about 180 million-year-old fossils.The Desert National Park has got the Great Indian Bustard breeding location & exotic wildlife.

Festivals are rejoicing in Jaisalmer with Holi, 'the festival of colors', the celebration of which touches its peak. The vivacious spurting of the colored water and the powder on one another is the highlight of the festival In the 'Jaisalmer Desert Festival' the desert itself comes throbbing to life, pulsating to the rare pastoral display of art and culture. At the full moon night a sound and light drama is performed at Sam.

Though Jaisalmer is a feast for the eyes than anything else, one can carry few souvenirs and treasure them for life. Beautiful embroidery in a brilliant mosaic of colors, patterned with tiny mirrors on garments, linen and pouches. It's also used for decorating the camels. There are traditional rugs, blankets and shawls in typical Rajasthani colors and weaves.

Jaisalmer has got an extreme climate. The best time to visit this place is from October to February.
