be it Footpaths, flyovers, schools, offices, hospitals, markets, homes, roundabouts or stations, everything is made of yellow stones thus giving it a beautiful golden hue. explored almost all major attractions by walk on 2nd day. patwon ki haveli (border movie was filmed here ) one of the 7 patvon ki havelis folklore museum jain temple at jaisalmer fort inside folklore museum one of the seven jain temples amazed to experience a different culture at jain temple beautiful architecture at jain temple inside jain temple the beauty left me in complete awe gadisar lake nearby bus station beautiful lake view taxi charges to Tanot was way too high and if i rented scooty then it would be associated with the risk of puncture on 120km road with no local mechanics nearby so i took government bus as the safest bet to Tanot Temple (120km from jsm) to witness the much hyped aarti there....

Top Places To Visit in Tanot 2 Spots

Tanot, Rajasthan 345022, India
Our last stop was Tanot Mata Mandir which took us close to 2 hours. The drive was scenic. The roads were empty. The place is historical and it definitely reminds you of the movie Border. The temple is clean and well maintained by Army. They say more than 3,000 bombs were dropped either in the vicinity or on the temple, but none exploded. And one can see some of those bombs in the Museum built by Army inside the temple premises. Also, Army has built a Vijay Stambha to mark the victory of Longewala battle inside the temple compound.We missed visiting Longewalan war memorial which was another 40kms as we were short on time. Additionally, you require permission to visit the Indo-Pak international border (open only till 4:00 PM) which can only be obtained in Jaisalmer.

Weekend Getaways from Tanot  

Best time to visit - January- March and October- December
The name of the city means “The Hill Fort of Jaisal”. The Golden City of India is known mainly for the beautiful sand dunes, marvelous palaces and old bungalows, the tranquility of the Jain Temples and of course the view of the Thar Desert. The state is full of color and is enriched with the love of art and culture. Not just the camel safaris, but sitting with the folk singers and enjoying their music about everyday life in Rajasthan is sheer bliss. The music of Jaisalmer is a mixture of folk and Indian Classical. Their language is influenced from Sindh and is a bit different from typical Rajasthani. The Gadisar Lake, Jaisalmer Fort and the Desert National Park are among the many attractions in the beautiful city. The climate is extreme so cover your body whenever you are out to escape from the heat of the sun.
