Right inside the Golden Fort of Jaisalmer this 450 year old guesthouse could not be better situated
Our room, the Mahorajhas Room is spacious and colourful and gives one the feeling of living in a bye gone era, marvellous
This family run guesthouse only aims to please, the manager and staff cannot do enough to help, nothing is too much trouble

A walk around the fort looking at the palaces that are amazing. This is a much lower pressure place. The people are so friendly and helpful, quite a contrast from the India we have seen so far. The handicraft is wonderful, the leather goods particularly. Be careful of quality. Best to buy things outside the fort precinct. The ...
... and there is no glass in most of the windows. It truly is like living on the set of Arabian nights. Everywhere you walk down these twisting alleys, you are confronted by merchants selling all manner of trousers and patchwork material. True to form, I have bought by self some trousers, but since they worked out at £1.10 a pair, I think I can treat myself. Once we ...
