“This is a great shop and people are really nice!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

我造訪了JAISALMER兩次,因為我很喜歡這裡,還有交到許多好朋友,所以在我離開印度之前還有剩餘幾天的空檔,我又回到這可愛的小地方! 店裡有很多古老的收藏! 都是從沙漠地區的去個部落收集而來的傳統手工逢製品 ,價錢合理又可以幫助沙漠地區人家的收入! 店員們都很好,對你就像朋友一樣!絕不會強迫你買東西! 請他們安排的駱駝探險之旅或是吉普車沙漠之旅都價格合理又地點特殊! 別忘了參觀及造訪這可愛的小店! 我想你會跟我一樣,喜歡上這給你的感覺!!!!
i visited Jaisalmer in Jan of 2013,the first time i visited there i stay a week,went a really special camel safari for 4 days 3 night.They will arrange you everything and english speaker camel guild.
That's where i spend my new year's eve.Super special experience in the desert, without people squeeze together.I have my own sky and full of stars. Lucky me, even see the shooting star on new year's eve.And in the shop, the people in the store are super nice,the had the nice embroidery,patch work stuff collect from everywhere of desert.not pushing you buying anything, but they will help you find the one you want for you!!!I really like this place, that's why, when i have extra time in india before leave,i went back to see all the friend i meet in Jaisalmer, include the people i meet in this great shop!maybe after you saw this , you might saw me there again soon.

“Nice goods, professional advice and service”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I visited the store in January 2013 and bought some beautiful bedcovers, with patchwork and ancient embroyderies. The service was excellent. They made some changes due to a different size I needed. Also, they shipped everything (by air) and I got the parcel with no problem, within a short time. I cannot judge the prices since I did not much shopping in other stores, I was interested in good quality more than in cheap prices.

“Best place to shop for antiquities in Jaisalmer!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The SIlk Route Shop, just past the main gate of the old city of Jaisalmer in India, offers some of the best antiquities and crafts in Jaisalmer, if not all of Rajasthan. The young shopkeeper, Bhawani Singh, is both knowledgeable and helpful in showing you the arts and crafts of the region, as well as introducing you to all the other attractions of Jaisalmer. Be sure to check out the SIlk Route Shop when travelling to this desert kingdom!
