This is an ancient capital of Jaisalmer. Northwest of Jaisalmer, Lodurva is an important centre of Jain pilgrimage. The Jain temples, rebuilt in the late 1970s, are the only reminders of the city's fromer magnificence. The main temple has an image of Parasnath, the 23rd tirthankar.

(153 km from Jaisalmer)
Barmer is a small and lively desert town, known for its hand block printing industry, carved woden furniture and colourful costumes worn by its friendly people. The best time to visit is during the gay Barmer festival held every year in the month of march.

Sam Sand Dunes
(42 km from Jaisalmer)
It is the closest point to witness the total sandy desert. Sam (pronounced 'sum') has a truly magnificent stretch of sweeping dunes, with little or no vegetation. The best way to see this and other sights around Jaisalmer is to take a camel safari. This is Jaisalmer's nearest real Sahara-like desert. This place has become a massive tourist attraction.

Desert National Park
It preserves the eco-system of the desert within its confines. The Monitor lizards, desert foxes, porcupines, occasional wolves and black bucks, and the Great Indian Bustard (a protected bird ) are found here, forming an ecological chain revolving around cactii and other hardy desert plants.

Bada Bagh
A fertile oasis on the bank of an artificial lake. Much of the city's fruits and vegetables are grown here. Surrounded by dense trees are the royal cenotaphs with beautifully carved ceilings and equestrian statues of the former rulers.
