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

So many stars that you can't pick out familiar constellations and the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye. If you just lie down and stare, eventually you'll see a shooting star, or a ...
... culture as a housing estate garage, it was a welcome change to see highly decorated buildings everywhere we looked. This is one place where central fort lends its design features to the rest of the town.
