Jaisamand Lake, also known as Dhebar Lake, is second largest artificial lake in India, spread over an area of 87 sq km.The most interesting fact is that this magnificent lake was created back in 17th century, when a marble dam was built across the Gomati River by Rana Jai Singh, the king of Udaipur then. The lake is situated around 45 km from Udaipur and 27 km from Parsad, a village on National Highway No. 8.Boating facilities are available, and one can get an idea about its ocean-... continue reading
Jaisalmer fort is a World Heritage Site situated in Jaisalmer (also known as "Golden City), Rajasthan, India. The name comes from a Rajput Ruler, Rawal Jaisal, who built the fort in 1156 AD.The fort stands on a hill - Trikuta Hill. The beauty of the fort comes from yellow sandstones that radiate different shades of yellow like lion-like, honey-like, and golden yellows during different times of daylight. This is the reason why it is also called "Golden Fort". At night, the fort looks... continue reading
Jaisalmer is a wonderful city to visit at any time, but is all the more poignant for me as the honey colour of the fort and buildings remind me of my home city of Bath in England. The city is dominated by the fort, which is perched on a hill within the city walls. Inside the fortare the narrow winding streets of a small medieval town, in many ways unchanged for centuries, but now catering for tourists with gift shops, cafes and small hotels in profusion. Below the fort lies the remainder of the... continue reading

The venue for the elephant festival is the Chaugan Stadium in the old city, just behind the City Palace. The festival does not have any great historical roots and appears to have been established mainly as a tourist attraction. That said it appears to be much enjoyed by locals and visitors alike and is a riot of colour and an excellent... continue reading
Nagaur in Rajasthan comes alive once a year as the home of a very traditional livestock fair. An event barely touched by modernity and much the same as it would have been centuries ago. I travelled to Nagaur via the overnight train from Delhi to Jodhpur, but getting off about 100km short of Jodhpur at a rather nondescript place called Merta Junction. I disembarked at some unearthly hour of the morning having had barely any sleep, due in part to sharing a compartment with a very loudly snoring man,... continue reading
Monsoon time in Delhi is a good time to visit northern Rajasthan, if you can stand the heat. There are few tourists, it is dry (unless very unlucky) and there are great bargains to be had at hotels. Bikaner beckoned. Not the easiest place to get to despite being only 400km from Delhi. No airport so it was an 8 hours train journey from Rewari; a rather non descript sort of place about 2 hours drive south of Delhi the other side of Gurgaon.The main historical attraction is the superbly preserved... continue reading
