This street is like so many other streets in Jaisalmer that I am not sure why it is listed separately. However, saying that.... you will probably cross this street if you are staying a couple of days... its busy and crazy and full of food shops and markets and pigs and cows etc... you probably will walk it without knowing...

"Gandhi Chowk Street" is one of the most busy and typical streets of the "Golden City" of Jailsamer! Located at the very heart of the Sadar Bazar area and near Hanuman Circle Road, it attracts a whole crowd every day! Typical shops, street food, souvenir vendors and beautiful "havelis" (the old sandstone carved mansions with intricate latticework) will catch your... More

There is a really good little hotel here that is suitable for backpackers, travellers and solo female travellers. The location is good and within easy walking distance of good local restaurants and the bazaar. Area is usual for India - full of life, chaos, litter, wandering pigs, chickens, goats and cows. Lots of cheap Tuk Tuks available for the inevitable... More

The street can be disgusting at times, there is nothing special about it. Not actually sure why it is even listed.

We enjoyed Masala tea at Munna Tea stall,locally famous teashop. Tea was served in Kullahds, small cups made from mud. Tea was very tasty that we repeat our order. Another near by local shop is Radhe Radhe pakore wala. Just try his Mirchi Pakora, very delicious, crisp n I found it better than what available in Jodhpur.

A nice, lively, narrow street, easy to walk in, lots of shops. Keep going until you get to Huanaman Circle for some real people watching.
