  • Good for people interested in archeology. Fossil of trees of 180 million years before are there. Distance from jaisalmer Fort is around 20kms No one is there to attain. Some informative boards are there. Road is maintained by BRO which is very good.
  • Nothing really nothing to see. No one was there at gate in morning when I reached at 11 am. Place is not approached by anyone neither I see any tourist over there.
  • Yes its nice you can find here fossils of million years old trees and other spices and alos view the little pond and ostrich
  • Good for people who are interested in archeology
  • More than the 180 million year old fossils, this place is about the desert like landscape, the picturesque surroundings and the cool breeze. Oh and there are also Emus that you can feed. Note that we went in the winters though. You might want to avoid this place in the summers.
