The Vyas Chatri is dedicated to Sage Vyas, who wrote the epic Mahabharata. Vyas Chhatri has nice memorials that features intricate carvings, arches, and domes. It is made of yellow sandstone. The Cenotaph is adorned with beautiful paintings depicting life of Sage Vyas. Further, it is a cremation ground for Brahmins. When we visited in the afternoon on a day in Oct’23, the place was deserted. The place offers good photo ops.

A little walk from Jaisalmer. ( 25 minutes walk) Entrance 100 roepies a person. Nice to see. These are the cenotaphs of the royal family In Jaisalmer. Some of the cenotaphs are in a bad condition. You see a lot of windmills at the background.

This was one of our favorite places in Jaisalmer to visit. It was calm, and quiet at around 4pm - a few hours before sunset. The light is perfect, the sculptural architecture is gorgeous and it has the feeling of a deeply reverential place. It was so quiet that I was able to meditate there without distraction for about 30 minutes. That felt great.

It's worth the walk to get there. Great views and wonderful energy.

This commemorative plaque is built in the memory of Sage Vyas who had written the epic Mahabharata and is a formal cremation ground for the Brahmins located in Jaisalmer. The cenotaph dedicated to the Sage is situated north of the entire structure. These cenotaphs were made as a symbol of respect to the clans of the royal family after their death. The cenotaphs are built of yellow sandstone with intricately designed chhatris placed on top of these pillars.

We visited the place in evening. It is a photographers delight and excellent place to watch the sunset. Must visit.

If you are a photography buff and love sunsets with the play of light and shadows- DONT miss this place. Go there about 30 minutes before sunset and you will have some fabulous photo opportunities.

I walked to this location (using google maps) from the hotel. There are no autos or taxis available there for your return unless you walk for a few 4-5 minutes to reach the main road. If your hotel is not a walking distance and if you are not keen on walking, I recommend keeping your taxi/auto there until you finish the visit.

I paid Rs 50 as entrance fees - there was an old man sitting at the gate who issued the entry ticket.

Nice historical site to visit at sunset. Cool blend of architectural styles and atmospheric. as there are not many people around and it's outside of the fort area (but not too far).
