Once you have seen all the attractions in Jaisalmer, it’s time to hit the road for some nearby attractions.
Bada Bagh (8KM from Jaisalmer)
Literally translates to ‘Big Garden’. Maharaja Jai Singh II wanted to create a garden in the desert so he commissioned this land to create a water tank in the 16th century. Later on, cenotaphs were built here for the royal family.
Amar Sagar Jain Temple (6KM from Jaisalmer)
Built in 1928 by Patwa Bafna Himmat Ram, this temple is dedicated to Lord Parshwanath. An exquisite masterpiece of art and architecture.
Kuldhara (20KM from Jaisalmer)
A village that was established around the 13th century and abandoned by the early 19th century. No one knows exactly why it was abandoned. The most obvious reason would be water shortage but recent studies suggest that it could have been an earthquake. Legend has it that Kuldhara is a ghost town.
Lodurva Jain Temple (15KM from Jaisalmer)
Dedicated to the 23rd Tirthankara, Parshva. This temple was destroyed in 1152 AD and reconstructed in 1615 by Seth Tharu Shah. It was again rebuilt in the 1970’s as a reminder former glory.
