    Description

    We are welcome you to help in the heart of the Thar desert, ancient town of Jaisalmer, which has many historical attractions. Magic views, fairy-like trips and surrounding history.
    We need your help in the very special place –

    Our guest house is something special to this area.
    It is located inside an artist colony of traditional musicians and story tellers whose task was from ancient time up to now to preserve its history, to entertain and to spread news by singing in the surrounding areas.

    The musicians will perform their great traditional storytelling and music for you on request.

    Our guest house is a 10 minute walk from the main fort of Jaisalmer. In your free time it's a beautiful place to walk around and visit the town. There are also markets and typical chai and street food places to see.

    I will be happy to invite you to walk with me and the guests on my guided tour to see the musicians homes close by and learn about the history of the artist colony. I am from the artist colony and so I can give you a true insight into our culture, something close to my heart.

    I would like to learn German language so i need also practices that.



    That is why we need for skillful persons: anyone who is fond of architecture, building, painting (and arts!), and also – maintaining, promotion, management. You can help us with musical events and our cultural center, with workshops and tours. Any your skills and possibilities are worth for us!

    We are very flexible here at the guesthouse. My main goal is to improve our marketing. This could involve uploading photos on social media, chatting with guests and handing out leaflets in town to promote our place, its history and culture and our camel trek. We also welcome any help with cooking and general help with guests and odd jobs, this might include cleaning and preparing the rooms for guests. There will also be the opportunity to work overnight on one of the camel safaris we offer to guests. This would involve helping tourists and cooking in the desert if you like to do so.
    We are also constantly seeking to improve the guesthouse and to make the stay for guests as pleasant as possible, so you can bring in your own ideas on how to develop it further!
