Jaisalmer War Museum, located 10 km from Jaisalmer city on the Jaisalmer-Jodhpur Highway. It has been set up by the Indian Army to commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of soldiers, specifically during the 1965 Indo-Pak War and the 1971 Longewala battle.
We visited this museum on the second day of our trip to Jaisalmer. The Museum has:
• Two information display halls(Laungewala Hall, Indian Army Hall)
• An audio visual room
• A souvenir shop
It also traces the evolution of the Indian Army.
There are many war trophies and vintage equipment on display,along with tanks, guns and military vehicles.
It is a top tourist attraction due to its aesthetic layout, fountains, green lawns and amenities.
The Jaisalmer War Museum is considered by the international online travel guide TripAdvisor to be one of the top war museums in Rajasthan.
