Rohet is a quaint village in the Pali district that exudes the charm of rural Rajasthan. Encircled by the majestic Thar Desert, the village was once ruled by the mighty Rathore clan. It is home to the Rohet fortress and lake along with a quirky shrine dedicated to the Bullet Baba that makes an intriguing visit. The village is located a little to the south of Jodhpur making it the perfect desert village to head to for a rejuvenating vacation.
The Heritage Fortress of Rohet Garh
Rohet Garh is a very old fortress in the township that rests on the shore of a water body. The lake itself is a major site frequented for birding as it houses a number of land and water migratory birds. The 375 year old fort was once the abode of the Rathores who ruled over the village. Recent times see it as a grand heritage hotel run by the resident Singh clan. It is an exceedingly well restored structure that offers guests an unmatched sojourn experience.
Tourism in Rohet
A visit to the idiosyncratic Om Bana Temple is a must for people visiting the village. The shrine is like none other in the country for it is dedicated to a motorbike instead of your average deity. Travelers can opt for desert safari aboard a Jeep or choose to mount a camel and head off on a short ride. Horse riding tours are also an option many take when they explore the tribal areas that offer interesting experiences.
