Khejarla derives its name from the Khejdi Tree that can be found at the village. The tree holds significance in the village as it is believed to have saved the Fort when hit by Mughal cannons. The Mughal army rolled in to attack the Fort three times. Each time the Fort was destroyed, it was rebuilt.
The classic Rajput – Mughal architecture is built on a small hillock and is owned by the Bhati clan of Rajputs. The family of Khejarla has descended from the royal family of Jaisalmer, and Maharajah Gopal Das Ji was the youngest son of the royal family of Jaisalmer and moved to Khejarla after being granted the fiefdom of Khejarla.
this fort is partially occupied by the Royal family with the other
part converted into one of the best heritage hotels in India and is
open to all those who would like to travel down the eras. The emphasis

living, traditional culture, beautiful elegant furniture, and priceless
antiques during the stay. The mosaic laid spacious rooms have high
ceilings, historical photographs, traditional old paintings, elegant
tapestry, beautifully carved furniture and panoramic views to verbalize
the elegance and grandeur reminiscence of the Rajputs.
