“EXQUISITE: SERENE. DON'T MISS THE FOUR FACED SHIV STATUE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Lodurva is around 15 km from Jaisalmer off the Sam road. This is a tourist spot generally missed unless you are on a temple tour. Next to the AmarSagar Lake, the temples made of Jaisalmer Golden Stone, are exquisite having been renovated by the tourist department. We went there in the evening and most of the regular tourists had left. The 'Wish Tree'-Kalpataru is worth seeing. The main temple is dedicated to the 23rd Tirthankara. Don't miss the other temples, two Mata temples and the old temple of Shiv. The four faced statue is something unique and needs to be seen. Plenty of peacocks around, and if you lucky, which we were you could see a few dancing. Overall a wonderful trip.

“Definitely do not miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

The much less discussed about attraction of Jaisalmer is not its dunes or fort but the temples inside the fort. The depth of the carving is rare even for Indian standards. Get lost in their many details.

They are open from 6 am to 1 pm. "Foreigners" are allowed inside after 11 am.

Get a guide for around Rs 50 for the temples or better yet a guide for the entire fort and temples for Rs 100. I usually never get guides but they added a few interesting details here. Or you could just buy headsets for an audio tour.
