Khimsar is a unique destination in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan and is reminiscent of its royal past. Khimsar is located in the Nagaur district that is also famous for its cattle fair and attracts tourists in droves due to its color and pageantry. Khimsar is easily accessible from both Jodhpur and Bikaner.
The Khimsar Fort here, with its turrets and battle marked walls, is absolutely delightful. Going back to 1523 AD, this fort had a separate Zenana or ladies section. Now, the Khimsar Fort is among the best heritage hotels of Rajasthan. The village itself is good for safaris, horse & camel riding and leisurely activities like bicycling and kite flying.
The Khimsar Fort was made by Rao Karamsiji in 1523. In the eighteenth century, a ladies wing was added to the fort according to the tradition of the times. Later during the 1940s, Thakur Onkar Singh a descendant of the royal family living in Khimsar Fort added a royal wing for his personal use. The magnificent fort is now a grand heritage hotel managed by the Welcome Heritage Group.
It has 50 rooms that have been maintained in their original grandeur while modern amenities have been added. Khimsar is 90 km away from Jodhpur that is also the nearest airport. The towns of Khimsar and Jodhpur are connected by rail and road.
