Shower in Jaisalmer

A trip to Jaisalmer in Rajasthan is like taking a walk down history.


The forts, the palaces and the havelis absorb you in their excellence.


The art does not end here. It continues after death too as is evident in the Royal cenotaphs.


The colour and the art against the golden desert are astounding to say the least. Yes Jaisalmer is thriving in the Thar desert. A trip to the Sam sand dunes and if you have the time an overnight stay there will be worth your while. Unfortunately we did not have so much of time hence we just spent an evening in the desert.


The sunset in the desert is to die for. After a camel ride to the sunset point as it is now called, we were taken to an arena where Rajasthani folk musicians performed their traditional dances and music.


So lively!
I was reminded of all these when I saw the Alive is awesome advertisement created for Cinthol soaps which also had this wonderful clip about Bathing in the desert. It showed how one can have a shower in the desert! Do take a look and maybe next when you are in the Thar desert you will be able to have it!  So do not forget to pack your Cinthol soap when you visit Jaisalmer!
