From Jaisalmer, most people visit Badabagh, Ramkunda, Lodurva, Kahala, Kanoi, and Sam. Sam has beautiful sand dunes. Kanoi and Kahala have cute houses. Cheers.

thank you for your response. i have been to these villages long back and they are favourite among tourist circuit. apart from these, i am looking for some typical village with somethings unusual in rituals, culture or architecture.

@jonathan, these villages are scattered around the road from jaisalmer to sam (am i right, amy?).

thanks. nevil zaveri
