This was a surprise stop on the way to jaisalmer. Having been always fascinated by the battle tanks, seeing these beasts out in the open was a warm welcome to the wer museum. See the proud heritage and a glorious history of lndian army.

The Indian army has set up a historical war museum in Jaisalmer. This is a unique and well laid out museum complete with AC coffee shop and a Souvenir corner.

Beautiful ambiance, walls showing sacrifices made by our Jawans, surrended by General Niazi of Pakistan and various pictures and souvenir shop, are praiseworthy.

ideally it shud be open as the board outside the museum days open from 9 am to 6 pm on all days..
Request you all to review my itenarary. 1. Reach Jaisalmer at 0600 by train. 2. Get fresh, have breakfast and leave the guest house by 0800. 3. Visit the Jain temple 4. Visit the Sonar Killa (Fort) at 0900. Go for audio tour. visit the palaces inside the fort( can you please name the palaces inside the fort?) End the visit till 1300. ....4 hours sufficient???? 5. Have lunch and Leave for Desert Safari at 1400 6. Night in the desert 7. Next day arrive back in the morning at 1100. Get ready, have lunch and out for rest of the sightseeing by1300 8. Take auto and go to the war museum and back by 1530. (2.5 hrs sufficient for the to and fro journey and the museum visit?????) 9. visit patwon ki haveli and salim singh haveli by 1730. 10. Go to Gadisar lake at sunset time (i think this is not a sunset point, but read the reviews that this is good place to visit in the evenings) 11. Go to desert cultural museum and attend the puppet show at 1900. 12. Walk in the markets and End the day with dinner at 2200. 13. Take the train for Bikaner at 2300. a. Is it worth going to the Desert national park if i am already spending 1 night in desert safari? b. Read from reviews here that salim singh haveli and nathmalji ki haveli are average places and can be skipped. Is it correct? c. Can Bada baug be accommodated anywhere in the itinerary or it is worth a skip? Since, i dont have family and ladies along with me in this trip, i believe i wont waste time in the movement, local transport, eating joints and getting ready. Please advice

Sounds like an excellent plan. I haven't been to patwon ki haveli and salim singh haveli so can't comment about that but the Jaisalmer fort, war museum and desert safari are all worth visiting.
