Hi! Welcome to my place which is a west-facing small house located inside the Jaisalmer Fort. This property is more than 600 years old (Coz I'm the 26th Generation of my family in this ancestral property).

The breath-taking view from here is that of the Sunset & the Jaisalmer City and at night, the cold breeze will relax you.

Here, you can rejuvenate and be away from the hustle-bustle of the daily life by being one with the city's heritage!

The space
The Golden City of India, Jaisalmer was founded in 1156. Jaisalmer is known for its magnificent sandstone palaces, ornate Jain temple & the finely wrought manors of the palace.

Our glorious roof terrace covered with Indian floor cushions offers a spectacular view of the town, fort and desertland beyond. So, if you are looking for a delightful and affordable vacation, the picturesque city of Jaisalmer is waiting for you.

The Place:
This 14th century house where you will be living during your stay was built more than 600 years ago but I renovated it around 20 years back to keep it abreast with modern amenities and have been upgrading new things every year. The place boasts of a courtyard which leads you to the room and a rooftop to enjoy the expansive view of the Jaisalmer city below. The place is not only serene but also has an amazing aesthetic feel to it. You can Sit, Relax & Soak in the environment while watching the Sunset from the rooftop or from the comfort of your own room.

The Room:
The room being shown here is one of our special rooms and is called the 'Family Room' since there are 2 rooms; one having a Queen-Size bed and the other room having single-size bed. Also, keep in mind that this room is on the 1st floor and it is accessible through a staircase. The room has a powerful A/c and a beautiful 'Jharokha' (Big Balcony) which looks over the west side of the Jaislamer Fort and also gives a mesmerizing view of the Sunset. The room is full with modern amenities yet it gives you a historical experience while you're here. A stay here will not only rejuvenate you but also enthrall you with the sheer beauty of the city.

The area:
My place is situated inside the Jaisalmer Fort which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A walk of 150 meters from the main square of the Fort reaches you to my place (Kindly be advised). Since my place is located inside the lanes of the Fort, you’ll not be able to bring your own vehicle and would have to walk the small distance (Don’t worry, we can send runners for you!). Since my place looks over the city, you will surely have a memorable experience while you sit on the rooftop and soak in the environment and have the 'Masala Chai'. There are numerous Jain Temples & the Palace Museum nearby and you can take in the ancient history just by walking through the small lanes of the Fort and witness how people are living in it from ages.

Amenities:
-The bathroom is having access to 24 hours Hot & Cold water along with all the other modern amenities.
-There is high speed internet & WiFi which you can access from the room.
-The Air Conditioning in the room can cool the room to desired temperature in a few minutes.
-There are bedside lamps for your reading comfort.
-The TV in the room has access to 200+ Channels.

-There is a mini-refrigerator for you to store your drinks in.

Hi! I'm Pankaj, a native of Jaisalmer and the 26th Generation of my family to inherit my ancestral property. My family was residing in this property and I decided to renovate it in 1996 because I loved the idea of Hosting travelers and meeting new people. I love to Travel and explore new places. I have extensively traveled to France, Italy, Switzerland & Thailand and have also traveled a lot in India as well. While traveling I love to explore the local life and see the different rituals & customs. I shifted to the city of diamonds (Surat, Gujarat) back in 2001 but keep visiting my place occasionally. I also love to cook occasionally and love to share Pure Veg. Indian Cuisine recipes with my friends. My style of Hosting is to welcome my guests just like my friends, show them the history and culture of my place and also make them feel like they're at an old friend's place! Hope to see you soon!
