Rajasthan is one of the oldest settlements of India, known as heritage as well as cultural capital of India. Be it the cities or the countryside, the place always fascinates its visitors with its enchanting beauty and historical importance. The villages of Rajasthan still have that rustic charm of the desert. These hamlets take the visitors through a timeless journey of life and experience in the golden ‘Thar desert’.In your tour to Rajasthan, you’ll be shown zillions of villages with stunning well maintained farm stays and bungalows, where special rooms and food is prepared for the guests.But, what if you get to live in the house with the villagers only?No special farmstay, no luxury, no scrumptious food. Only the classic rural stay, exposing the arduous life of Rajasthani folks, where people live happily in rugged terrains which is still untouched by modernity. A place where community stay tradition is still alive where community members help each others in both good and bad times, where you get a chance to choose to stay at one house and eat at some other house of the same village.Yes, such place is called, ‘The Community Stay’.This Village lies in Phalodi tehsil in district Jodhpur. This village stay epitomizes the real picture of an Indian village where life had been self sustaining for centuries.The villagers live in harmony and host the guests together as a family. Their centuries old community stay system adds to the warmth for people visiting here making it one of the best homestays near Jodhpur. Living a typical village life with natives, observing their local artwork, business, learning pottery, dressing in their traditional attires, listening to Rajasthani folklore can be like living the life you once read in your childhood story books.But if you are expecting a fancy and luxury stay at the village then this place obviously not your taste. Don’t visit this place in expectation of modern services and of course if you are a party animal, it's better to head Udaipur or Jaipur.
