Luni


Fort Chanwa, LuniChildren playing in the narrow carefree streets, women dressed up in bright attires all lined up near the village well, a series of artisans by the roadside – all this and much more is offered by the small yet charming village of Rajasthan, Luni. Far from the hustle bustle of the cities, approximately 35 kilometres off Jodhpur lies Luni Village. The time here seems to have come to standstill. The village has kept alive the age-old conventions and skills of their ancestors. The villagers still make stunning products out of metal, clay and wood.


An extraordinary example of symmetry and elegance of the Indian architecture is Fort Chanwa in Luni. Entire Fort Chanwa is built in red sandstone. It is the most striking sight in Luni. The intricately carved lattice work and the exquisitely sculpted Jharokhas take you back into the grace of the bygone era. Beautiful courtyards, passages, stairways and towers add to the composition of the fort.


Catch a perfect glimpse of the rural Rajasthan from the roof top of the fort. The walls of the fort are adorned by the paintings that bring forth the skill of the craftsmen of the bygone era. The entire Luni Village nestles in the shadow of the magnificent fort. The village has still kept alive skills of the artisans passed down by their ancestors.


Though Fort Chanwa has now been converted into a Heritage Hotel, its original appeal has been kept intact till date. It serves as the best accommodation option while you are on a holiday in Luni. Finest hospitality and the best of amenities make your lodging tenure a memorable experience.


Dig into the flavourful delicacies served by the in-house restaurant at the hotel Fort Chanwa. Guests can take their pick from the Indian, Continental, Chinese and local cuisine the restaurant serves. To keep the travellers in high spirits, a well-stocked bar is also present in the hotel.


The weather in Luni remains very pleasant from the month of October to March. It is the best time for planning a trip to Luni.


Luni is accessible from Jodhpur, one of the major cities of Rajasthan. The nearest airport from Luni is in Jodhpur. The nearest railhead is also situated at Jodhpur, which connects Luni to all the other important cities within and outside the state. Buses and private taxis connect Luni to major nearby places in Rajasthan.
