Khimsar Tour Guide

Situated around 92 km away from Jodhpur, Khimsar is a quaint little village set up by a scion of the house of Jodhpur. The Khimsar Village can be an excellent starting point if you want to explore the Negaur region. Khimsar is well connected by road to the other major tourist destinations in Rajasthan including Jodhpur, Bikaner and Nagpur. Khimsar has always remained a bone of contention between the royals of Jodhpur and the Thakurs of Khimsar. If the claim of Jodhpur royalty is anything to go by then Khimsar was never independent. The Thakurs of Khimsar, however, have a very different claim. According to them, Khimsar was always an individual entity. TouristPlacesRajasthan.com takes you on exotic Khimsar Tours Guide to acquaint you with a slice of royal history.

Places to Visit in Khimsar:

There are many places of tourist interest in Dungarpur. Some of the must-visit places include.

Khimsar FortThe Khimsar Fort that dates back to the sixteenth century is one of the chief attractions of this rustic hamlet. The fort was initially conceived as a military structure solely meant for defensive purposes. But later, at around mid eighteenth century, the royal family moved in and a new residence was constructed for the ladies. One remarkable feature about this ladies residence is the finely carved windows that acted as screens for the ladies in waiting. The fort was subsequently transformed into a hotel that is rated as one of the best heritage hotels in India.

Sacchiyamata TempleThe Sachchiyamata Temple is a major stop over on your Khimsar Tours Guide. Located about 27 km off Khimsar in a small hamlet in Ossian, the temple used to be one of the revered Hindu Temples that have been reduced to a dilapidated state at present. Ossian is dotted with a number of Hindu and Jain Temples that can be traced back to eighth and eleventh century. Compared to the Hindu temples the Jain temples have been pretty well-maintained.

Cattle FairYou won't feel like wrapping up your Khimsar Tours Guide without paying a visit to the Cattle Fair held in Nagaur, about 43 km away from Khimsar. Visited by thousands of locals and tourists, the Cattle Fair is renowned for its camel races and other sporting events.
