Jaisalmer Bike Tour
OUR BIKE TOURS
Also known as “The Golden City,” Jaisalmer is a stunning tourist destination in Rajasthan synonymous with the yellow sandstone that features the architecture of most structures in the city. Famous for its forts and palaces, deserts, lakes, temples, havelis and more, Jaisalmer is a must-visit, and India Bikes And Tours offers many Jaisalmer travel packages for every kind of traveller.
Jaisalmer Fort, nestled on the golden sands of Thar Desert, is not just a fort but a mini-town with houses, temples, shops, and restaurants. Owing to its altitude, it offers a stunning and panoramic view of Jaisalmer city draped in golden yellow. The walk through the labyrinthine lanes is an experience worth having.
Kuldhara Village, located around 20 kilometres from the Golden City Jaisalmer is one of the most interesting and intriguing attraction sites in Jaisalmer. Kuldhara Village is a historical site now maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India, so tourists can visit the place and look around to have a glimpse of how the ancient village used to be during its time. The entire Kuldhara region stretches for a vast area, including about 85 smaller hamlets. All the huts and cottages of the villages are broken and in ruins. There is also the ruin of an old temple of some goddess, presumably Mother Nature, which now stands empty and vacant.
Gadisar Lake offers scenic and picturesque views of the lake and the adjacent fort, especially when the eastern sky is blood red and the sun rises, striking its rays on the top floors of Jaisalmer Fort. You can go boating in the lake or simply enjoy a walk around the embankment.
Patwon Ki Haveli
Also known as the Mansion of Brocade Merchants, Patwon Ki Haveli is a cluster of five small havelis built by a rich trader in the 19th Century. It still possesses an ample number of artefacts and stonework that give a glimpse into the regal lifestyle of the Patwa family. The intricacy of this architecture lies in its exquisite wall paintings, balconies that open to a panoramic view, gateways, arches and most importantly the mirror works on the wall.
Nathmal ki Haveli
Nathmal ki Haveli is an ornate haveli in Jaisalmer. The architecture and carvings that adorn the fort of Jaisalmer are mostly built out of yellow sandstone. Thus when the sun rays fall on these structures, they radiate like gold. It also has extraordinary paintings using 1.5kg of gold leaf and carvings on walls.
Salim Singh Ki Haveli
Salim Singh ki Haveli is a beautiful edifice at the heart of the city Jaisalmer. It also holds another beautiful name - Jahaz Mahal as the front facet of the Haveli resembles a ship's stern. The Haveli is almost 300 years old, adorning a beautiful arched roof in the shape of a peacock. Created with strong iron rods unlike the ones made of cement and mortar; the mansion is famous for its architectural elegance.
