Jawahar Niwas Palace is situated at Bada Bagh Road, P.O. Box No. 1, Jaisalmer. Like a ghostly mirage, this forlorn beauty stands 1km west of the fort in an abandoned quarry. Rooms are elegant and spacious though, with plenty of room to plan full-on fort assaults. Those upstairs at the front have the best (if distant) fort views. There's another fabulous pool.
