Coolest cemetery ever

The architecture in this cemetery is impressive. A treasure a few kms away from Jaisalmer. Usually a rickshaw driver can take you there. Recommended.

A must visit place if you are fond of architecture. Basically the place is not as per the name there are lot of "chatris" which are symbol of royal family's member. After their death one chatri is added here. But the chatris are so beautiful nd technically made to be saved in earthquake.

An amazing site of religious and historical significance but given very little respect by the locals. Broken beer bottles, seemingly hundreds of them, litter the site. Rubbish is strewn everywhere. The monuments have been allowed to fall into disrepair with little or no effort made to restore them. Very sad treatment of something of which Indians generally and Rajasthanis, Jaisalmerians...

These cenotaphs mark the cremation sites of the local royalty. There was no one else when we visited, which gave it a great atmosphere. Beautiful place (probably more so after the rains).

This place is better in pictures, just a memorial and the architecture isn't too fascinating to be honest. Rather cover the havelis , palace, village and desert.

They are now charging IR100 to enter & another IR100 to take pictures. It is in a bad state repair and needs a lot of TLC. It hasn't the energy of other cenotaphs. The terrain is rocky so wear sturdy shoes

Sun set in Jaisalmer is a feast to eyes. We were charged quite heavily to enter this place to enjoy the sunset, as it happens to be in an elevated place. However, there is absolutely no facility as such for the visitors. The place around the limited benches are not maintained nor cleaned. This place seems to be a burial... More
