Favorite thing: One can not imagine if he can get opportunity to stay in national monuent/museum the golden fort of jaisalmer , this fort is having palaces many famous temples and ninenty nine bastions covering the area more than 2km squre , it is claimed to be more than 500 years old , if one gets opportunity to stay in old beautiful building on the rampart with all modern facility ,, is it not the amaizing ,,, yes it is the reason every touist likes to stay in the fort where few restaurants and guest houses are there run by native resedents to make their both hands fold as in jaisalmer except then tourism no big industry is there ,, now yellow stone cutting small plants are there and government offices are there for employment, in past this jaislmer was dry port the traders from Afgan Iraque Iran and from other countries used to come India through jaisalmer by camels ,,, and this area was prosperious ,,, many fields are there they were growing many types of grains/ food through water storege tanks (anicuts, dam like) but now only tourism is the main source of natives which is impecting the jaisalmer in all respect ,,,, so that many up to five stare hotels have come in to the force here,,,, the main thing is these big hoteliers are angree with the hotel business in the fort ,,, they are jeleous and the offer tourists to write about this that fort is in danger so not stay in the fort and not staying in the fort is batter for the health of this fort ,,,, they forget the law of nature ,,, one day every thing has to get old and the charmer will not leave if the son leaves the father if he becomes old ,,, if father is sick old the due care is done ,, the repairing etc is done by the government to maintain the fort ,,, is the local and national government fool ? why they are not stopping the running guest houese in the fort , is the government lame and unwise , can not think good for the life of fort ,, they have invested millions of rupees to construct a under ground sevrage pipe line , it is working very much well ...so it is my humble request and suggestion not see the one face of coin and say your comments in the favour of big guns in force /obligatory or in m iss understading

Fondest memory: A nice memorable camel safari afrranged by desert haveli guest house , deep in to the thar deser,,, tasty indian food cooked in the desert,, charming sun rise ,, camel riding ,, sleeping under the starlit / wonderful moon ,,, campfire dancing with natives , folk musiic ... wonderful sun rise with hot indian tea..... all the memorable camel safari through the indian villages of vivid culture , cast and traditions a good way to see all through this simply the camel safari it should be said a trip to the desert culture and tradition ... I enjoyed very much..
