Located beautifully in the great Thar Desert, the Khimsar Fort stands high as the pride of Rajasthan. The fortress was built in 1523 by Rao Karamsji, the 8th son of Rao Jodha of Jodhpur. With picturesque setting of rural Rajasthan in the backdrop, its location makes it a clear charmer. Travellers visiting this masterpiece get awe-struck by its grandeur mirroring in its grand appeal, battle-scarred walls and intricate designing.

This oasis of peace has been beautified with sprawling lawns, orchards and open courtyards which let one walk down the memory lanes in style.
