Bada Bagh means ‘Huge Garden’. Maharawal Jait Singh’s period saw its construction, which was at the beginning of the 16th century. His son Lunakaran completed the construction after the death of his father. The garden served as a memorial where the nobles and their families were cremated. The garden offers a stunning view.

Patwon-Ki-Haveli is located in the main city. It was built by a famous trader named Guman Chand and his sons. This massive five-storied construction has five intricately decorated huge suites. The large corridors and the decorated walls are excellent representations of the art form that prevailed. The entire construction is made of yellow sandstone. The grandeur and the architecture of the monument add immense value to the cultural heritage of the city. Out of the five havelis, one is converted into a museum. The third haveli houses the works of local craftsmen of the bygone era.
4. Sam Sand Dunes
Time: 11.00 AM
To have a feel of the desert, you need to undertake Desert Safari. Sam Sand Dunes is the ideal location to set off for the Desert Safari.

Thar Heritage Museum is located at the main market of the city. Laxmi Narayan Khatri was the founder of this museum.

The museum houses unique ornaments of the ship of the desert and horses. Documents and coins of Jaisalmer, ancient manuscripts, and weapons are some of the collections found in this museum.
6. Gadisar Lake

The artistically carved entrance made of yellow sandstone offers a breathtaking view.
Time: 03.00 pm
Nathmal Ki Haveli was built by two Muslim jeweler brothers not stone carvers on the order of the then-prime minister. The brothers started working on opposite sides of the building which lead to a similar but non-identical left and right side. Apart from its extraordinary outer carvings, this haveli is known for its beautiful interiors filled with paintings and equipped with modern facilities. An amalgamation of Islamic and Rajputana architecture, Nathmal Ki Haveli is well justified as being one of the most beautiful havelis in Jaisalmer.
8. Jain Temples
Time: 04.00 pm
Located inside Jaisalmer Fort, Jain temples are a series of temples dedicated to Jain Tirthankaras and can be traced back to the 12th century.

Beautifully carved and well interconnected, these temples are a vision to behold and are completely made up of yellow sandstone.
9. Salim Singh Ki Haveli
Time: 05.00 PM
Among all the havelis in Jaisalmer, Salim Singh Ki Haveli is known for its distinctive and eye-catching architecture. It was built by the then minister, Salim Singh who wanted to make it as high as the fort but was prohibited by the king. It has 38 balconies with its own distinctive style of architecture and a peacock-shaped roof. This haveli provides a good glimpse into the past and the photographs taken here would be awe-inspiring.
Time: 06.00 pm
A small village famous for its sand dunes, Khuri has scenic sunset viewpoints and offers a good look at Thar’s ecosystem due to its location. This is an affordable substitute for Sam Sand dunes and would be ideal for people looking forward to relaxing among lesser crowds.
