You will leave Jodhpur in the morning for a full-day journey to Osian. A guide will walk you through the history of Osian, which was a major commercial centre between the 8th and 12th centuries when the Jains ruled. Situated by sand dunes, this historic town has the most Hindu and Jain temples from the 8th to 10th centuries in Rajasthan. Osian's mediaeval residents' riches enabled them to construct costly and artistically sculpted temples, the majority of which have resisted the ravages of time. The temples' sculptural features approach those of Karnataka's Hoysala temples and Orissa's Sun Temple of Konark.
The most noteworthy of these temples are the Sun Temple, Kali Temple, Sachiya Mata Temple, and the major Jain temple devoted to Lord Mahavira. Osian, a little village now, was once a great and rich metropolis; so vast, in fact, that it had its own grain market. Have an Indian lunch in a local restaurant after visiting the temples. Go on a Camel Safari, one of the most fascinating and unusual ways to visit Rajasthan's tiny hamlets and experience rural life.
You will be driven to the ancient Thar Desert of Osian on a full-day tour to Osian. A private vehicle with a guide will pick you up from your destination and transport you 65 kilometres north to Jodhpur. Osian was famed for its Brahmanical centre, and subsequently Jainism followed. Visit a historic temple and eat Indian food at a local eatery. On the vacation, go on a camel safari in the desert.
After being picked up from Jodhpur, embark on an adventure to the city of Osian and spend six hours in the Thar desert. At Osian, you will have a spectacular camel safari to explore the amazing sites in and around the area. Meet some of the native tribes that live there, explore every nook and cranny of Osian, and make the most of your six hours. Osian is home to incredibly old temples, buildings, and constructions that still stand tall. Meet for an unforgettable Rajasthani lunch before embarking on your return journey in a jeep.
