12 hrs in Jaisalmer

I've just 12 hours to spend in Jaisalmer. From 5.30 AM till 5.15 PM on Dec 10th.

How to plan / manage sight-seeing within this period?. I just want to experience fort / temple / haveli. Not interested in sand dunes / camel safari.

Is 12 hours unrealistic? or shall i skip Jaisalmer and go to Pushkar instead?

don't change your itinerary. I feel jaisalmer is more attractive compares Pushkar. If you have only mentioned time you can enjoy more.. palace and Jain temple are in fort . You can start your tour after breakfast visiting first sequence given by tikkujaipur. But Jain temple should be second visit after Gadisar lake . Temples are open before 0900 hours.

you can start 0800 hours.

Dev- Digital jaisalmer( DE of jaisalmer) can advised you prefect program.

wish you great time in Goldencity.

check in your hotel ,drop your bag in hotel and go to the lake for sunrise ,come beck hotel foe shower n rest a bit .

9am visit to the ,maharaja palace with audio guide , n jain temple and walking bit in street is nice in the fort .

after the fort visit the 3 havelis 2/3hrs require .

If you you finish all this before 2pm then you can visit barabag ,there beautifull cenotops from the maharaja family .

This will depend how much time you take for the fort and haveli .

Be beck at your hotel by 4:30pm take your bag n reach stattion .
