In Jaislmer the colorful sunrise is one you can’t miss if you are there, specially if you are close to Gadisar lake. The Gadisar lake has a history and if you have a guide, sure he/she will tell you about it.
The Gadisar is a 14th century man made lake with different monuments some called chetri/ umbrella on the lake and around it for the guests, kings and queens to sit. The lake is full of Cat fishes, they call them Rajistan fishes because they have what locals call Mustache like most Rajistan men.
It wasn’t easy, but locals in Jaisalmer told me not to miss the sunrise, as it was one of the most beautiful moments of the day. Apparently, locals too never get tired of their own sunrise, and they celebrate it every day, able like few of being surprised by daily natural wonders.
You will as well find many Indian women giving bread crumbs to fishes in the Gadisar lake and since they don’t eat them, in some parts of the lake you will see thousands of them. You will as well see some fishes coming one step up in the dry edge of stair to get the bread crumbs. I personally wouldn’t want to get in the water but some do and the fishes crawl all around their legs.
There are camel caravansary around it, mainly used for traders who traveled the Silk Road. You will also see the temples of Shiva and the gate originally built by a rich woman. The fact that a woman built a gate pissed the Maharaja so he sent his soldiers to destroy the gate but the same night she finds out about Maharaja’s plan so she puts a template of Krishna up on the gate. When the soldiers arrived the next day to destroy it, they saw the statue of Krishna and avoided to demolish the building.
