Things to Do in Jaisalmer

  • Government Museum

    Established in 1984, the Government Museum in Jaisalmer is a small one but it displays the various cultural artefacts and rich heritage of the Thar Desert.

    Some of the highlights of the museum include 72 stone sculptures, 8 inscriptions, 65 coins, 13 paintings, 179 embroidered dresses, puppets and handicrafts. Other interesting exhibits in the museum include a collection of fossils going back to 160 to 180 million years ago.

    The museum has adequate information on the displays so you can read about the origin and the importance of every exhibit.

  • Dussehra Chowk

    Dussehra Chowk is a huge courtyard inside the famous Golden Fort or Sonar Kila of Jaisalmer. It is known to be the perfect place to marvel at the architecture and craftsmanship of the palace.

    Dussehra Chowk can be reached through Hawa pol, the last of the four gateways in the palace. The courtyard was especially used for Dussehra festivities during the Rajput reign in Jaisalmer. There is a marble throne here, which is where the king supposedly sat while watching the proceedings in the complex.

    The charming views from the chowk make it a popular spot for tourists to lounge and admire the surrounding beauty.

How to Reach Jaisalmer

By Air

Jaisalmer Airport is a military airport and supports only chartered flights, hence is sparingly used by travellers. Although air travel is generally not considered an ideal mode of transport for travelling to Jaisalmer, some people do travel by air to save on time.

Jodhpur Airport is the closest domestic airport that is functional throughout the year. Major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Udaipur have regular flights to Jodhpur. The airport is approximately 5 to 6 hours’ drive from the city. You can either hire a prepaid or a private taxi from the Airport to reach Jaisalmer.


By Bus

There are no direct buses from Delhi to Jaisalmer as the 17-18 hour drive is too time-consuming and quite exhausting. You can however switch buses in Jaipur from where a state-run sleeper coach operates regularly. Be sure to book tickets in advance as there are limited seats. Some sleeper buses are also available from Jodhpur and Udaipur.


By Train

Jaisalmer is well connected with a wide network of trains covering most of the Indian cities like Delhi, Jodhpur, Jaipur and others. Some of the popular trains are Delhi Jaisalmer Express, Jodhpur Jaisalmer Express, Howrah Jaisalmer Express and Lalgarh Jaisalmer Special.

Once you reach the station, there are many auto-rickshaws and private taxis standing outside the station that will take you to the city on a nominal fare.
