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

The dunes obviously function a bit like the beach at home as a couple of truck loads of young lads drove past us at one point whistling and hooting (Yes children your mothers still get whistled ...
... stroking action but it was one of those really subtle brushes. Was it accidental? Did it even happen or has the heat melted the rational part of my brain?
