Ancien temple, KhimsarKhimsar is a small principality in Nagaur, Rajasthan. Nagaur is famous for its cattle fair. Khimsar has a stunning fort that is a heritage hotel and is an excellent place to stay in luxury and enjoy the Nagaur Fair. The village Khimsar is located about 92 km from Jodhpur and is also close to Bikaner. Endless sand dunes and rugged landscape are the charms of Khimsar apart from the 16th century fort.
