Jaisalmer Off The Beaten Path: 32 reviews and 79 photos

After visiting the Parshvanath Temple at Lodurva, our driver took us to this little desert village called Chhatrel where he lived and where he was picking up his sister from and dropping her off at some wedding ceremony elsewhere. We wandered around the village which was split into two parts based on the Hindu and Muslim religions. The village featured traditional homes made out of mud and dung and topped with sticks as well as houses made out of more western/conventional materials such as bricks and concrete. This is what I had hoped to see whilst in India and I loved seeing how they were built as well as meeting the families who lived in them.
