Jain Temples

Jaisalmer is subsumed by the golden sands of time that sparkles with memories and tales of valiant heroes, religious ascetics, beautiful princesses, conniving kings and clever ministers. The architecture of the city is a mere reflection of the barren beauty that surrounds it. The yellow sandstone that makes up the image of the Jaisalmer Fort emulates the environment it stands in. Inside this formidable structure stands the Jain temples. The Jain temples are a cluster of stories that are unravelled in stone.

Jaisalmer Camel Safari

In the Thar desert, in the northwest India, in a place where the exotism and color of the Indian cities meets the calm and hilly shape of the desert sands, the camels are moving. They do so for centuries. Their bosses have carried the goods along the Silk Road, have fed teeming populations, have walked over sands that bind cities, leaving behind the marks of the deep steps into a world of mystery and fantasy.The Indian epic texts gave the desert a name that linked it to religion and spices: Lavanasagara, the Salt Ocean, that was born on a distance from the River Sarasvati, one of the main rivers mentioned in the Rig Veda ancient Hindu texts.

Jaisalmer appears in the middle of the desert as a shining city of light, crowned by the unusual shape of the castle. The streets are crowded every day by the local merchants, the gypsy girls dancing in an undulating movements to the sound of a music emanating from the unusual strings and percussion instruments. Somewhere among them we can still hear the rawanhathha, a typical local guitar, with its unique sound that nowadays, only a few know how to play.The desert road is still crossed by many travellers and locals, making the Thar the most populous of the desert areas of the world, and camels roam through it with the lassitude of a rhythmic movement that soothes and charms as if an unseen force is imposing movement onto their long legs. Finding the correct balance on top of one of these animals is an exercise of calm and character. Should we learn to follow the dance of its body and soon we will be able to feel the hot desert wind wrapping around our hoair and ahead of us, we will just see the slow scrolling the sandy path leading to the horizon. This is the true magic of the desert.Get Free Quote
