  • Must visit place if you’re at jaisalmer. It brings out the patriotism in you, one suddenly feels proud to have such great soldiers and your respect for the army just gets multiplied by several digits.
  • This is the location of battle of Longewala in Dec 1971. It's about 100 km from Jaisalmer. Roads are very good. Nationalism gets boost here. Equipment captured from Pakistan is displayed here.
