BARMER SIGHTSEEING

 

**BARMER BARMER IS A CENTRE OF WOODCARVING, CARPETS, EMBROIDERY,BLOCK PRINTING AND OTHER HANDICRAFTS AND ITS PRODUCTS ARE FAMOUS THROUGHOUT RAJASTHAN.OTHER WISE,THIS DESERT TOWN, 153 KM FROM JAISALMER AND 220 KM FROM JODHPUR,ISN'T VERY EXCITING.THERE'S NO FORTRESS HERE AND THE MOST INTRESTING PART IS PROBABLY THE JOURNEY TO BARMER THROUGH SMALL VILLAGES,THIRD MUD-WALLED HOUSES DECORATED WITH THE CHARACTERESTIC GEOMETRICAL DESIGNS OF EACH DIFFERENT VILLAGE. WHILST WALKING AROUND BARMER,I WAS STOPPED BY AN ARMY CAPTAIN DRIVING A JEEP.HE ASKED ME,WHY HAVE YOU COME TO BARMER? THERE'S NOTHING HERE !BY THE END OF THE DAY,I FOUND MYSELF IN SUBSTANTIAL AGREEMENT WITH HIM. THERE'S ALSO HARDLY ANYWHERE TO STAY HERE. THE ONLY OBVIOUS HOTEL I CAME ACROSS WAS THE AGRA REST HOUSE ON STATION RD,THOUGH THERE MUST BE OTHERS. BUSES RUN BETWEEN BARMER AND JAISALMER, AND SOUTH TO PALANPUR IN GUJRAT. BARMER IS ALSO CONNECTED TO JODHPUR BY METRE-GAUGE RAILWAY.ALTHOUGH THE LINE CONTINUES ON TO THE PAKISTANI BORDER,THERE ARE NO THROUGH TRAINS TO THAT COUNTRY AND,IN ANY CASE,FOREIGNERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CROSS THE BORDER AT THIS POINT.
