We took a cab from the bus stand to hotel with whom we decided to have the tour around the main city of Jaisalmer. Both of us reached hotel, got freshened up, took a small nap and left for the tour. Each and every house in Jaisalmer is golden as they are built of finely sculptured sandstone. I could then relate that the nickname “The Golden City” given to Jaisalmer well deserves. Our first destination was the Mandir Palace, before entering the palace our guide (the cab driver) gave us a brief detailing about the palace. It didn’t take much time to look around the palace as most part of it has been converted into a hotel now. As per our request we were taken to a nice place to have our lunch with a royal feeling. After our heavy meal we left for the remaining tour for the day. Next we were taken to Nathmal Ji Ki Haveli. There are shops inside this haveli wherein various decorative items were put on display for sell in the courtyard. We took a look around the haveli and left for our next stop which was the Patwon ki Haveli. It is a cluster of 5 small havelis that was made for each of the 5 sons of the trader named Patwa. This haveli is an interesting piece of architecture made with yellow sandstone. The haveli displays a good amount of antique paintings and mirror-works on the wall. We strolled around the place for some time and left. The cab driver then dropped us at our next destination The Jaisalmer Fort. This fort is built on a hill above the surrounding countryside. The fort’s wall does not only include the Raj Mahal palace but also 7 Jain temples built with yellow sandstone, The Laxminath Temple and numerous merchant havelis some of which are hundreds of years old. We looked around the entire fort for a good amount of time. After a wonderful time in Jaisalmer Fort we went to the Gadsisar Sagar Lake. It is a lake with a great view around surrounded by nice buildings with unique architecture. We sat there for couple of minutes just to enjoy the cool breeze even on a scorching hot day. Right after that we asked the driver to drop us at the hotel for us to take some rest and then we decided to go for the sunset view. After taking a small nap we left for the Vyas Chhatri which is situated 5-6 km from Jaisalmer city. It is a great vantage point for a good sunset view with many cenotaphs of the former kings. We occupied a great spot in one cenotaph and waited for the sunset. This is an awesome place to relax after a tiring tour around the city. We were having small chit chats, smoked and clicked many pictures with the sunset view. After the great sunset view people slowly started to leave the place but we two sat there for another 30 minutes as the place was quite and we were dog-tired to even stand. We decided to walk towards the city to look around the nearby place, but after walking 2-3 km we hired an auto to our hotel. On the way we bought us some snacks, soft drinks, cigs as we decided to get drunk on the rooftop of our hotel with the remaining bottle of whiskey that we had. We reached our hotel got freshened up, ordered our dinner (which we asked them to serve late), went to the rooftop with the all the necessities and our party started. The view from the rooftop with dazzling stars above us was mind blowing. We enjoyed our time there for quite a long time and then dinner was brought to us. We had our dinner there itself, sat for some more time and then left our room.
