Marwar or Marusthali, literally means the "lands of the Dead". It broadly comprises the harsh desert region of Western Rajasthan ,stretching from Bikaner in the north, down to the hills of Mewar in the south .It is an interesting part of Rajasthan. Its relative remoteness tends to attract the genuine traveler keen to explore areas, a little off the beaten track.
There are three main destinations around Marwar-Bikaner Jaisalmer, and Jodhpur. From Bikaner you can drive out to Gajner, Deshnoke, or the archaeological ruins of Kalibangan. From Jaisalmer, you can go on a camel safari, visit the Desert National Park or make side trips to Samm, Khurri and Barmer. From Jodhpur you can take an excursion to the temples of the Osiyan or to Khimsar and Nagaur.
