Looking to take back a little part of Jaisalmer back home with you? Hop on as I take you on a ride through the best places to shop when in the city of shimmering sands and unbelievable mirages:

  • Rajmahal Road
    Pick up colourful puppets, mirrored wall hangings, rich bed covers and a thousand other knick knacks as you stroll down the road that leads to Rajmahal in the Jaisalmer Fort. With various shops and vendors dotting the streets, you will find plenty of options to choose from. Make sure you don your bargainers hat, as shopping here can be a major dent on your bank balance otherwise!
    Address: Jaisalmer Fort
  • Light of the East
    Flaunting a rare collection of minerals, this shop is worth a stopover for its mystique factor more than anything else. The place also has a collection of rare crystals and semi precious stones which are said to have a healing quality. Spend some time interacting with the shopkeeper for interesting folklore, insights on these minerals and their age, and other local gyan to better your understanding of this city.
    Address: Tewata Para
    Jaisalmer Fort
  • Rajasthali
    If you are running short and time and want to do some quick shopping, head to Rajasthali, a handicraft emporium run by the Rajasthan Government to promote the folk arts and handicrafts of the state. Showcasing everything from fabrics to puppets and jewellery to footwear, Rajasthali is a good place to discover all the myriad colours of Rajasthan. Pick up those colourful jootis that caught your fancy and that oxidised silver pendant you have been wanting forever. Save yourself the hassle of bargaining as these shops are fixed price and assure the value of your money.

    Address: Gandhi Chowk
  • Khadi Gramodyog Bhawan
    A great place to pick up Khadi fabrics, homemade carpets and hand woven garments, Khadi Gramodyog Bhawan is a gift for the earth-lovers. You can also pick up tie and die materials and colourful bags when here. A step into this place and you will feel like you have stepped into a sylvan land, thanks to all the products here which have a rustic touch. You can pick up gifts for loved ones when here, along with promoting the aging Indian Cottage Industry.

    Address: Town Centre

Take a walk down the lanes of the city outside the fort to pick up colourful scarves, embroidered bed covers and what nots. You can also spot a handful of spots near Nathmal ki Haveli and Patwon ki Haveli to pick up the beautiful curios you lose your heart to.
