Khimsar Tour

Hotels in Khimsar


Khimsar is a small village situated around 92 km on the highway from Jodhpur to Bikaner in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan. The village of Khimsar provides an excellent starting point to explore the district of Nagaur, which lies midway between Jodhpur and Bikaner. 

 

A FORT IN MARWAR

Perched on the edge on the great Thar Desert in the heart of rural India, the unique fort at Khimsar offers a wide range of experiences. The battle-scarred walls and turrets remind one of the glorious past of this place.
 

The quaint little village of Khimsar was once a small kingdom established by a scion of the house of Jodhpur. It is situated around 92 km away from Jodhpur (on the Jodhpur - Bikaner highway) and is one of the most interesting sites you can ever visit in Rajasthan. The Khimsar village is also an excellent starting point for anyone interested in exploring the Nagaur region.

Khimsar has always been a bone of contention between the royals of Jodhpur and the Thakurs of Khimsar. According to the Thakurs, Khimsar was always an independent entity. However, the Jodhpur royals beg to differ on the issue. Meanwhile, the most important attraction of Khimsar is its grand fort that still houses the 18th, 19th and 20th generations of the Khimsar Thakurs.

Khimsar Fort: The Khimsar Fort is perched on the edge of the vast Thar Desert of Rajasthan and is the most important attraction of this rustic hamlet. It was constructed around the beginning of the 16th century. At that point of time, it was basically a military structure, full of turrets, fort walls and stables. A Zenana or ladies residence was constructed in the mid-18th century after which the royal family moved to the fort. The fort was subsequently converted into a hotel that is often rated as one of the best heritage hotels in India.

Sacchiyamata Temple: The Sacchiyamata Temple is located in Osian, a small hamlet located around 27 km away from Khimsar. The temple is in a dilapidated state but nevertheless is one of the most important attractions of Osian.

Cattle Fair: The cattle fair takes place in Nagaur, some 43 km away from Khimsar. Visited by thousands of locals and tourists, the Nagaur cattle fair is also known for its camel races and sporting events.

The nearest airport from Khimsar is located in Jodhpur, some 92 kms away. The nearest railway station is also located in Jodhpur. Meanwhile, regular buses connect Khimsar with other centers in the region
