Akal Wood fossil Park is being maintained by Desert National Park, Jaisalmer which is a unit of Forest Department, Government of Rajasthan. It’s located nearby Jaisalmer on national highway no 15 towards Barmer. It has wood fossils displayed for tourists and for those who have interest in geology of the area. I would suggest as "Must visit" place if you are willing to go Jaisalmer. These are evident of how mother earth changes its own geography from a coastal area in to a desert.
