This initiative of Rajasthan Tourism along with central agencies and the Border Security Force (BSF) will not only help visitors get an understanding of the life of people and security forces living in the border areas, but will also open a new door for locals living in these far-off villages.

As per the reports, the government is further looking to build an interpretation centre, amphitheatre, cafeteria, children’s activity area, solar-powered street lighting, surveillance system, signage, and other facilities in Tanot village of Jaisalmer district.
