Typical Indian market area

We wandered around here one evening after dinner. The shops etc are average I didn't notice anything of particular interest but it was an insight into local life.

The city of jaisalmer is not at all maintained by the officials. The garbage, cow dung, open drainage leaves one with a bad experience in the city. The government should look into this as the city is visited by thousands..

Park your car at Gandhi Circle / For parking and take a walk here. Narrow congested streets have lot of shops for shopping. Eat Mirchi wada / Pyaz Kachori at any hotel. If you have come from any heritage city like Varanasi / Jodhpur then this experience will not be unique for you.

This street is like so many other streets in Jaisalmer that I am not sure why it is listed separately. However, saying that.... you will probably cross this street if you are staying a couple of days... its busy and crazy and full of food shops and markets and pigs and cows etc... you probably will walk it without knowing...

This is one of the busiest place in Jaisalmer. There are many eateries to satisfy your taste buds. You can also buy many antique items in the shop here.

"Gandhi Chowk Street" is one of the most busy and typical streets of the "Golden City" of Jailsamer! Located at the very heart of the Sadar Bazar area and near Hanuman Circle Road, it attracts a whole crowd every day! Typical shops, street food, souvenir vendors and beautiful "havelis" (the old sandstone carved mansions with intricate latticework) will catch your... More

There is a really good little hotel here that is suitable for backpackers, travellers and solo female travellers. The location is good and within easy walking distance of good local restaurants and the bazaar. Area is usual for India - full of life, chaos, litter, wandering pigs, chickens, goats and cows. Lots of cheap Tuk Tuks available for the inevitable... More
