Avail this Jaisalmer desert safari with mud cottage stay to make your weekend or a short holiday in Rajasthan unforgettable. Often referred to as the Golden City of India, it has some amazing and mesmerising forts and palaces. Jaisalmer Fort is unarguably the biggest tourist attraction in the city. This 12th-century fortress, built by Raja Rawal Jaisal, is often called the Golden Fort of Rajasthan.
Bada Bagh, Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Khaba Fort have given the city a great historical significance and a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Translating into the big garden and commissioned by Maharawal Jait Singh, Bada Bagh was constructed in the 18th century. The architecture of the 19th-century Salim Singh Ki Haveli is also something to admire. Its balconies display amazing carvings that are proofs enough that the skill of the local artisans in those times was unmatched. Once held by the Paliwal Brahmins, Khaba Fort has ruins of the homes of the 80 families that lived here about two centuries ago. The trip to the region becomes a bit spooky if you visit the mysterious village of Kuldhara. Its tourist appeal rests on the shoulders of the stories that claim that it is haunted.
Dedicated to the 23rd Tirthankara, Lord Parshvanath, Lodurva Jain Temple, another peculiar site in the area, is of great spiritual significance for the Jains. Located on the banks of Amar Sagar Lake, Adeshwar Nath Temple is another religious site that is frequently visited by devotees. Do not restrain yourself from the experience of a camel safari on this tour. The trip would seem incomplete if you do not climb on the back of a camel. A stay in mud cottages, apart from the option of sightseeing and navigating sand dunes on camels, is also entailed in the itinerary.
These mud houses are built to provide you with an authentic experience of the village life. Traditional designs, painted on the walls of these cottages, complete the experience. Small ovens and thatched kitchens are the basic amenities provided in a cottage house. With the houses and cottages, surrounding a well-maintained mud-floored courtyard, the site also features a washing place. All these amenities provided at this property, combined with amazing locations you can visit, make this venture a complete delight.
Arrive in the beautiful city of Jaisalmer, in western Rajasthan, and transfer to the campsite. The establishment has four rooms and the same number of mud houses in its premises. These cottages are built to give you an authentic experience of village life. Plus, the traditional patterns, painted on the walls of these buildings, only add to their beauty. These accommodation units are built around a well-kept, mud-floored courtyard, just like in medieval times.
Jaisalmer is one of the few places in India that have maintained their traditional charm even in modern times. People from all around the world come here to partake off its rich culture and heritage. You can utilise your time here with a sightseeing tour of some popular attractions of the area. Jaisalmer Fort, Bada Bagh, Gadsisar Lake, Salim Singh Ki Haveli, Lodurva Jain temple, Adeshwar Nath Temple and Kuldhara village are some of the must-visit places near the city. You may also enjoy a ride on the back of a camel on this Jaisalmer desert safari with mud cottage stay.
