Thar Vilas rated "EXCELLENT" by travellers
Jaisalmer, the Golden City of India, is one of the most alluring tourist destinations in Rajasthan. The name Jaisalmer evokes magic and vibrancy of the thar desert. It has a number of exciting tourist attractions showcasing the royal grandeur of the bygone era. One of the main draws is the daunting 12th century Jaisalmer Fort. The beautiful havelis which were built by wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer are yet another interesting aspect of the desert city.

The city offers a wide range of leisure options to its visitors. One can enjoy exciting and unforgettable excursions to places like the Desert National Park, famous for its fragile ecosystem and unique flora and fauna; Amar Lake (6 km) famous for summer palaces, finely hewed Jain temples, and gardens; Lodurva (16 km) famous for the ruined Jain Temple and a mythical wish-fulfilling tree; and Akal Wood Fossil Park famous for fossilized logs of trees trunks. Situated at about 42 km from Jaisalmer, Sam Sand Dunes are a must visit tourist attraction near Jaisalmer. Enjoying an exciting camel safari on Sam promises to be a truly unforgettable experience. The place also offers breathtaking view of the sunrise and sunset. Another not to be missed tourist attraction in Jaisalmer is its colorful Desert Festival held in Jan-Feb every year.

You can also indulge in an exciting shopping experience as one can shop for embroidered textiles and carpets, woolen pattu, carpets made from camel hair, tapestry, oil lamps, silver jewelry, finely cut antiques, old stonework, trinkets, and other souvenirs and curios.
