Located a far away from the hustling town of Jaisalmer. Its a 4 hour travel and its worth it.
While travelling one can witness the gradual change in the scenery around from small buildings to shrubs to arid desert. The war memorial will bring back the memories of the Border Movie (if you have watched it), There are destroyed tanks, jeeps, bunkers all over the place. One can also see the Pakistani border from this memorial. Please carry valid photo ids while visiting. The entire tour will take an hour or so. If you are planning to travel in the afternoon please coat yourself with loads of sunscreen and carry a cap. You can walk around the marked path and also go inside couple of bunkers kept open to the public. There is a small video presentation that happens at the venue. Visit this place if you are there, it will surely rekindle the patriotism in you.

learning about the wars and this special instance of bravery is a great experience for every Indian. One gets chills while reading the story and watching the short film about how India won that time.

Situated at the exact place where the 71' Longewala Battle took place, the Longewala War Memorial isn't a place to miss if you've grown up watching the cult film 'Border'.
The audio-video show is a little rusty, otherwise this place can give you goosebumps and make you feel prouder than ever to be an Indian.

One of the must visit places of jaisalmer.The drive to longewala from tanot in itself is an amazing experience.
Cannot describe enough the experience of visiting longewala..u have to go,be there to experience..The cafe there provides with snacks and tea..They have small museum sort of place where battle, soldier info have been showcased..And after watching the short movie, your patriotic feeling would definitely rise..
Just visit this place to understand how our army lives there in all extreme conditions..
