  • When the light brings out the ochre colour of the sandstone of the cenotaphs. Place of cremation of the Royal priests. Not to be confused with the nearby Bada Bagh site which includes the Royal cenotpaphes but which is unfortunately disfigured by a forest of wind turbines in the immediate background. Visit with a guide who explained the place of the ceremony of the cremations. Great views of the fortress of Jaisalmer

  • The hill opposite the town allows incredible overview. As well as the location. We are in the old place of burial of the deceased in the Islamic period, but today is preserved as a place for Hindu cremations. Check it out, but only at sunset. Colors and moods that are essential

  • A visit to this small temples worth towards the evening, because from here has man at sunset overlooking the old town of Jaisalmer.
