“Main spot in Market”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is actually Gandhi Chowk..not Ganhi Chowk. This is the main chowk of the jaisalmer and heart of the city. A no. of main Heritage Hotels including the hotel of the king of Jaisalmer are located at this place. Good to roam here and there in the evening

“An Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

The mix of people,shops, cows, bikes tuk tuks and tourists make this a memorable walk. To my eyes it seemed chaotic, but it all seemed to work with calmness, good humour and a sort of gentleness.

“Poor filthy marketplace with bright colors”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The only marketplace as such in the town, its filled with filth and wet mud. There isn't much to shop for. Batik prints are a specialty, so we bought a few pyjamas and handbags (all for women) - bright and nice; priced decently. Fossil stones were too expensive, and purity was hard to identify. Lots of leather products but crude and poor stinking quality.

“Great for photography”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

The area is filled with villagers who've made their way to the market from remote locations. The men sporting turbans and white clothes and the women colourfully dressed - many with large nose rings and travelling in groups. Didn't find anything I wanted to buy and was told that Jaisalmer may be decent for patchwork and camel leather goods but better to shop elsewhere for other goods (spices in Jodhpur, scarves in Pushkar, artwork/carvings in Udaipur, practical items in Jaipur).
