Water your spirit in desert's heat

Two things draw a visitor at Khimsar: Khimsar Fort & Shri Jasnath Asan. Khimsar Fort is royal, and Shri Jasnath Asan is spiritual. Jasnath Asan is 10 kilometres from Khimsar Fort, has renovated its property recently. Gem of a place. Well-kept, well-maintained. Quiet and uplifting. Food is authentic Rajasthani. Rooms are regal. Prices are affordable. Exciting ecology projects in progress. Water your spirit in desert's heat. Discover the place and thank me :)

The village of Khimsar was once an independent entity, which was under the reign of the Thakurs of Khimsar. The fort still serves as the home of the royal family.

The fort was originally designed and utilised for military purposes; however, later more rooms were added to it. The Zanana or the women's section was added in the 18th century.
