History of Vyas Chhatri
If you think that the cremation ground is the most boring place, then you should go to Jaisalmer’s diameter umbrella, and look at the grandeur of its monuments.
Jaisalmer has one of the most splendid structures, and it is one of its major tourist attractions. Dedicated to Rishi Vyas, who wrote the epic poem Mahabharata, there are beautiful monuments in Vyas Chhatri and a cremation ground for Brahmins.
The Yellow Sandstone Seinautaf has been built on the emerging platforms, where there are complexly designed umbrellas over the finely chiseled pillars.
They are a wonderful example of Rajasthani architecture. Built on a hill, you can see the fascinating view of Jaisalmer’s golden fortress, and sunset in the distance.
