hi folks,
a lot is written about Kiradu temples (near Barmer), wich really was helpful. I would like to go there in january from Jodhpur. Has anybody an idea if I can do that as a day trip from jodhpur by car? I think its about 250 km for one way, but no idea how the streets are.

Is the site closed on mondays like many museum?

thanks a lot!

I do not think this temple will be closed on Monday.

Visting Kiradu as a day trip from Jodhpur might not be possible. Is Jaisalmer in your list? It is closer to Jaisalmer (around 150 kms) than Jodhpur.

Some information http://www.indiamike.com/india/off-t...-kiradu-t8933/ and http://www.indiamike.com/india/rajas...barmer-t46356/

From personal experience, getting to Kiradu is not easy. There're no identifying marks and the place lies west of Barmer (about 30 kilometers) near Sihani village and hathma village. That road (off NH-15) is not in a great shape. Further, when we went, the Barmer-Jodhpur highway was broken near village 'doli' as well. We did not make it. If you do, please post your experiences!

Unless the road's been repaired between Jodhpur and Barmer, doing that as a day trip is out of the question. Doing it as a day trip from Jaisalmer would still be possible with a hired car and driver.

Also keep in mind that visitors of foreign nationality are required to take a permission to visit Kiradu from the District Collector, Barmer.

I try to get a permission from the dept. of Arch & museums prior, because I have a lot of archeological sites on my travel.
For Kiradu, there seems to be nobody checking permission I thought. Did they ask you for that?

I have not been there. The requirement of the permission was mentioned in both the links that I gave earlier. I think it is better to be safe than sorry.
