A trip to Rajasthan is incomplete without camel rides and sunset over the sand dunes. The ride towards Osian from Jodhpur is very arid and dry. You realize that you are in the dersert state – the Great Thaar Desert. We travelled to Osian in Rinku’s tuk-tuk. It is located 85kms away from the main city. Osian boasts of old jain temples, camel safaris. We glided and ran like kids on the sand dunes. The scenic view of the setting sun from the sand dunes was a priceless moment. Prakash and Vimlesh 8 year old kids were too cute and kept us company. The ancient Thar Desert town of Osian, 65km north of Jodhpur, was an important trading centre between the 8th and 12th centuries. Known as Upkeshpur, it was dominated by the Jains, whose wealth left a legacy of exquisitely sculpted, well-preserved temples.
