About the 3 places in this film

 

Jodhpur is the second most important city in Rajasthan with its 1.5 million inhabitants. It was the capital of the Kingdom of Marwar. The city is full of temples, palaces and forts including Fort Mehrangarh and the very elegant Jaswant Thada Palace.

Ramdevra is een klein dorpje vlakbij Jaisalmer. Het heeft minder dan 2000 inwoners.

Het is vooral beroemd om zijn Shree Baba Ramdev-tempel die het graf beschermt van deze Maharajah die stierf in 1459.

Jaisalmer's nickname is "the City of Gold" because of the color of its sand stones. The city was founded in 1156 and owes its name to King Rawal Jaisal. It is located in the heart of the great Indian desert (the Thar Desert) and has about 80,000 inhabitants.

Its imposing fort and the Jain Chandraprabhu temple are among the most interesting monuments sheltered by the small town.
