This is a historical townland and known as the capital of Marwaris on the Thar Desert. Osian town consists of several numbers of Jain and Brahmanical temples. Since the 8th and 12th centuries these temples are good evidence of architectural design. Among the temples, the sun temple is the most ancient and most respected. Mahavir Temple and three other Vishnu temples are of great attractions.
The wonderful experience here is camal riding at Sun set. The tourists can see the beautiful architectural forms of the temples and buildings while on camel ride. The evening is remarkable by the stage of arts and option of oriental cuisines set in the tribal style of the region. Stay at the camps is highly refreshing.
Osian bears a number of titles such as “Oasis of Thar Desert” and “Khajuraho of Rajasthan”.
