Bada Bagh means “Grand Garden” and perched on a desert hilltop is an incredible historic Royal Cemetery constructed by the Maharajas in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.  They are beautiful sandstone turrets above staircases with amazingly intricate designs.  Walking amongst them your imagination will run wild picturing an old majestic era.

Amar Sagar Jain Temple is dedicated to Lord Parshwanath, who is credited for bringing “Karma” philosophy.  The architectural design in a masterpiece to behold.  It has an ivory marble exterior and inside is a feast for the eyes with detailed intricate carvings of figurines, animals, and gods.  This temple is a key worship site for Jain people in the area.

A Gyspy Village.  It is a little known fact that Gypsy culture originated in the desert surrounding Jaisalmer.  This fascinating old culture has spread around Europe and the world.  With their giant embroidered skirts, jingling silver anklets, and broad smiles, there is something mysterious a fascinating about these people who believe in a transient lifestyle.  To wander through the village is to a glimpse of a different way of living in the world.

A Desert Oasis is something we have all heard about in tales of desert life and its mirages.  These naturally occurring pools of water in a barren landscape are definitely a sight for sore eyes.  To imagine stumbling upon a water source in a vast desert landscape is nothing short of miraculous.

Kuldhara an abandoned village.  Once a thriving town, famous for being the last stop on the Silk Route in India, now stands in ruins and is believed to be haunted.  The mysterious demise of this city has drawn treasure seekers from around the globe in search of the wealth that disappeared, as did its residents unexpectedly one night.  Folk Law states that the King of Jaisalmer fell in love with a beautiful girl from Kuldhara and demanded that she be his.  In response to the demands, Kuldhara is one of 84 towns that disappeared in a night taking nothing with them.  What happened to the people remains unknown.  Their amassed wealth of gold, silver, and jewels were left untouched and some are still believed to be buried amongst the ruins.  It is now recognized as a world heritage site.
