An old gate house apparently endowed by a rich courtesan It is a shame that it is not cared for better as it is a fine bit of architecture The random floodlights hung of it don’t help it’s appearance

This place is inevitable if you wish to go to Gadisar lake. YOu pass through here for going to the lake. Private vehicles are not allowed beyond this point. there are local musicians playing their music alongwith small sellers selling local artefacts around here.

we did just a quick stop here, and the view is quite nice. Lots of people come here for the views and to feed the fish which is good luck Worth the time.

Its a very small lake with limited access and boating is expensive.One can feed fishes with bread or other eatables.

Tilon was the courtesan in King's Court, its a temple of Lord Krishna. A gate to view the iconic Gadisar lake, the only water resource of the whole city.

Its on the approach gate to the Gaddi Sagar talab. Not much to see except the imposing structure. It has many myths around its constructions.

With limited time in Jaisalmer, our guide took us here for 40 minutes. Super waste of time! Even with an entertaining history, it's only good for a picture or two.
