Khimsar


Ancien temple, KhimsarKhimsar is one amongst the finest tourist destinations of Rajasthan. It is at a distance of 92 kilometres from Jodhpur. Though it is a small village in the Nagaur District, yet it attracts a number of tourists each year. Khimsar allows you to enjoy the rural charm of the desert land.


Khimsar is extremely hot during summers and extremely chilly during winters. The weather remains pleasant during the period ranging from October to March. Jodhpur is the nearest airport which is about 92 kilometres from Khimsar. Jodhpur is the nearest railhead too. Khimsar is connected to the nearby towns and cities within Rajasthan through regular buses and private taxis.


The unique Khimsar Fort situated on the edge of the great Thar Desert amidst the heart of rural India serves as a great tourist attraction. Even after centuries of battles, this fort stands intact. The 8th son of Rao Jodha, the founder of Jodhpur City started the construction of the Khimsar Fort in 1523 AD. The fort was built at Khimsar as both the brothers of Rao Jodha resided near the location, one in Jodhpur and the other in Bikaner.


Though the fort was built in the 15th century, but the royal family of Jodhpur shifted here only in the 18th century after the construction of the 'Zenana', a separate wing for the royal ladies. Later in the 1940s, a regal wing was constructed by Thakur Onkar Singh for his personal use. The magnificent Khimsar fort has now been converted into a Heritage Hotel.


Apart from this, the Sacchiyamata Temple in Osian which is about 27 kilometres off Khimsar is worth taking a look. Yet another major attraction near Khimsar (40 kilometres off) is the Nagaur Fair. Each year in the month of January-February, the fair becomes a centre of attraction for the tourists. Camel parades, camel races and folk performances bring alive the otherwise sleepy desert. 


One of the best options for lodging in Khimsar is Hotel Khimsar Fort which serves as a premier classified heritage hotel. It ranks amongst the best of the luxury hotels in India. The hotel is spread on a grand scale and welcomes you with elegant and royal Rajput hospitality.


Yet another accommodation option in Khimsar is the Sand Dune Resort. It offers an ethnic stay in luxury huts with beautiful sand dunes adorning the backdrop. The resort is equipped with all the facilities that a comfortable stay demands. Relish some flavourful delicacies at the restaurants inside the Khimsar Fort and the Sand Dune Resort.


The tourists are cordially invited to Khimsar, Rajasthan where they are warmly treated to the customs of the village.
