Going to the place i felt like this is the real streets of Rajasthan. If planing to do some cheep shopping it is the right place. The place is colorful and has lot of photographing options, but the not for candid s. Once you enter into the core streets there are chances of getting lost, so make sure were you... More

This chowk is the heart of Jaisalmer. With shops and eating joints surrounding this place, you will always come here when you are in this town. Hanuman Chowk near it is also another busy place here.

Extremely dirty place to visit with no sign of cleanliness. There's hardly anything that would pull you to visit the chowk.

nothing at all for the tourists...except the cattles on the road, dirt, stinking smell. Pani puri in jaisalmer is a complete no no. market inside the fort are much better to shop.

Lots of locals - we did not see another tourist here. You need a plastic squeegee? a belt? a comb? socks? underwear? a shirt? - whatever you need, it's here. And, no... More

We were fortunate enough to be staying in a Haveli just off Gandhi Chowk Street. Close to the Fortress, with wonderful views of the Fortress we enjoyed exploring Gandhi Chowk with it's markets and stalls - less touristy than the Fortress area, yet very close by, it was a nice contrast to it. Well worth an explore.
