Bikaner lies in the north-western part of Rajasthan state of India. This desert city has a stark beauty which is totally unique. The wide-spread sand dunes, the moonlit glittering beauty and desert agility, the worth-seeing natural sites, the marvelous palaces and temples, wild life sanctuaries and archeological treasures all combine to make this city a place of lasting charm and permanent attraction.

The golden city of Jaisalmer, which lies courageously as the western sentinel of India, is a place worth visiting. The golden ray of the setting sun draws a heavenly picture on the sands of Jaisalmer. The magnificent wood- and stone-carved mansions and buildings display the love of the Rajputs towards the fine arts. Jaisalmer is situated in the westernmost part of the state of Rajasthan, the heart of the great Thar Desert.

Chandelao village is situated just 40kms from Jodhpur city on the edge of the Thar. Still the home of descendents of Rao Kumpa, who fought against Sher Shah Suri, the Afghan ruler of Delhi and died in the battle of Sumelgiri in 1544 A.D. Seeing this brave Rajput General, Emperor Sher Shah Suri said, “for a handful of Bajra, I nearly lost the kingdom of Hindustan”. Chandelao Garh was built by his grandson Rao Puranmal who had annexed Sirohi for the Maharaja of Jodhpur. Entering into the majestic gateway of Chandelao Garh is like taking a journey into the past.
