The small village of Khimsar is just off the highway linking Jodhpur and Bikaner. Khimsar is famous for its 15th century fort, built more than 550 years ago by the son of Rao Jodha, the founder of Jodhpur. This medieval castle faced many covetous attacks over the centuries and parts of it were often razed to the ground and then rebuilt, resulting in its varied architecture. While the latest wing, built during the 1920s, houses the hotel, the 18th century wing is still the home of the present Thakur Saheb of Khimsar.
