Khuri Sand Dunes
45 Kms from Jaisalmer a place one must visit. Rajasthan travel is incomplete if you don't come here in Khuri san dunes. On the way you may visit wood fossil park, Temrirai temple, and barna desert village. If you hire a car from jaisalmer it will take INR 1200 for up and down fare. You can stay overnight to this beautiful village if you wish.
Have a camel ride there. Enjoy the sunset, which will remain in your memory for life long. After the sunset enjoy the folk dance and songs by local people and relish the dinner. All are available in a package INR 400 per head.
If you decide to stay there, you will experience the closeness of a desert village. While returning next morning visit Kaba Fort, a 800 years old fort and museum in a lonely place. Seel Kuldhara village. You can see Amarsagar Jain temple, where you will be charmed by the fine art works on marble on the walls. Same is true for the Lodhata Jain temple.
