“Unexpected jewel in the desert”

Owner description: The Dancing Queen of the Desert
Reviewed 26 January 2017

We were just going for a camel ride and were told by locals that we must see the show. Had not researched it at all. So it was a very very pleasant surprise for us.

We went on the evening package (didn't stay the night). It includes the camel ride to the Sam sand dunes and return ride to their resort Desert Springs. Then you are taken into the resort where the stage is set and tables are laid out for you to sit on. You must ask the usherer for your seat. They are marked.

Then begins the spectacular Queen Harish Show. Queen Harish is a male belly dancer who is extremely talented and dances as a woman. He has performed in over 56 countries. You will be very lucky to find him there for the show. His team of musicians and dancers is wonderful too. We couldn't take our eyes off them. The whole performance is spread over impeccable castanets jugalbandis, fire dance, contortionist dance, Thali dance, Kalbeliya dance and many many fun filled moments of audience interaction and photo ops.

I wish him and his team luck and many many more patrons!

Tips - If you are going there in the winters I would suggest you carry extra woollens and a cap as it is an open air arrangement. The package also includes a continuous fare of starters, nibbles and a proper buffet dinner. Do eat on time otherwise if you are the last ones to leave, you may find it a bit difficult to navigate your way back to Jaisalmer on your own. We left with a group of cars so it was easy, else finding landmarks in the desert stretch is difficult. Just remember your route that's all :)

We visited Jaiselmer with in December and stayed along with some of our close relatives. We did not know anything about the place and our whole trip was planned by our relatives. Our five days stay at Jaiselmer is unforgettable and memories of queen Harish show still fresh in my mind...Such a beautiful performance by Queen Harish..I am mesmerised....She creates such a magic and divinity of her smile can be felt in the air when she performs...Never miss her show when u go Jaiselmer. She connects with each and every person watching her...Never ever watched such a performer......Waiting to go Jaiselmer again...
