  about Khimsar

Khimsar is beautifully located in the middle of a small village, just off the Jodhpur-Bikaner highway. In the far distance are sand dunes that shelter fields where black buck can be spotted grazing. Established in the 15th century by a scion of the house of Jodhpur, it's history is a mixed one, reflected in the architecture of it's fortified castle.

Situated on the edge of the Thar Desert, Rao Karamsi-the eighth prince of Rao Jodha-the founding Maharaja of Jodhpur -successfully launched the royal dynasty at Khimsar. This fort architecture offers great heterogeneity. Originally, the fort walls, turrets and stables were built solely for war, and were constructed around the beginning of the 16th Century. Thankur Onkar Singh, the present chief and the 17th direct descendant of Rao Karamsi built himself a regal additional wing in the 1940's. Today, this fort ranks amongst the premier classified Heritage Hotels of India.
