INDIA: Jaisalmer – Sunrise and Sunset

Sunset at the Khuri Dunes, Thar Desert

Standing on a ridge of yellow sandstone in the heart of the Thar Desert is Jaisalmer, the Golden City of India.

The city is home to the golden Jaisalmer Fort – built entirely of beautiful yellow sandstone – and Gadisar Lake with its shrines to Lord Shiva and Vishnu.  And just outside of the city, the Khuri Dunes.

It is a beautiful area, especially when viewed at sunrise and sunset . . .

You know I had to do one of the sunset shots in monochrome . . . I think I like it best.

Namaskār,
