Jaisalmer



24/4/09
Our welcome to Jaisalmer, in the heart of the Thar desert, founded by Rawal Jaisal in 1156 AD. 
We visited another fort, a Hindu Temple and then had a good walk around the town, mingling with the locals 
which was nice, and gave us the opportunity to browse in bazaars and shops. 



No health and safety here.
This was in the middle of the street, it didn't even have railings around it!




Apparently the lady in the bright green sari was a widow, that's the colour they wear, 
I don't know for how long, maybe until they find another husband. 

Perhaps it's a way of letting suitors know that they are available!
