Title Review

Often called the desert jewel in Rajasthan''s crown, Jaisalmer was the capital of the eponymous Rajput princely state in pre-independence India. Though a city with rich historical past and cultural heritage, it remains even today somewhat inaccessible, mysterious and exotic. Bindu Manchanda here depicts, in sensitive detail, Jaisalmer''s history, its colourful legend, joie de vivre of its people, the irresistible beauty of its monuments, the enchantment of its music, its festivals, and its arts and crafts -- with a concluding section, primarily for the tourists''s guidance, on how to reach Jaisalmer, where to stay, where to shop and eat, what to see and how to get around. The book is aesthetically enriched with over 150 pictures: all in colour.

Bindu Manchanda has, since 1996, worked with INTACH on projects relating to the preservation of Jaisalmer''s architectural and cultural heritage.
