Fantastic place to wander. Hectic, busy & often crowded, but it's a great place to do a bit of local shopping, or just wander around taking in the amazing sights, sounds & smells. Get something to eat whilst there. The locals are friendly & helpful, and unlike some other market/bazaar/shopping areas around the World, it is a very non intimidating... More

This is an ideal place to take photos of the local women with their traditional costumes, jewellery, tattoos, and colourful saris. Just stroll around using your zoom lens or approach them to request permission, nobody ever refused me!

This is one of the busiest circle in Jaisalmer. You will find some restaurants to eat. You will find shops which sell you footware and clothes. There is a petrol pump near by which is helpful.

It is one of the old market with narrow lanes make it crowded but the market is simple and authentic. You can get authentic Rajasthan goods here.

Peaople in Jaisalmer are just so simple, kimd hearted and indeed so helpful. Their mannerism just blew out minds away. Gandhi Chowk street is the place we met most of the people of Jaisalmer

Plenty of small shops and street stalls in this street, together with animals and motorbikes: certainly pays to watch where you are going! Not too much hassle from the merchants. Worth a look as you meander around Jaisalmer town.

You will like this place for street shopping. Buy something Rajasthani from this area. You need to do hard negotiations to get better bargain. One must visit if time permits only otherwise its just wastage of time for Indians its a local market and for tourists a place to cut there pockets

Worth a wander to see Indian life in all its aspects, shops of all sorts plus a bloke (shoe repairer) sitting on the floor near the fruit market who fixed a pair of broken flip-flops for us. Typical Indian chaos, lovely. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK.
