From the resort at Jaisalmer, the Akal Wood Fossil Park is approximately 25 kilometres away. You’ll take about 40 minutes to get there.
A national geological monument of India, Akal Wood Fossil Park is also a biodiversity heritage site. The park has many treasures that offer a glimpse of a bygone era. There are fossils of Pterophyllum, Ptilophyllum, Equisetites species and Gastropod Shells of the early Jurassic period. A dozen fossilised wood logs lie in random directions. The fossils date back 180 million years. According to experts, the petrified wood is indicative of lush forests in a tropical warm and humid climate. The fossils of the gastropod shells also suggest that the region was a sea once upon a time. We are sure you are already longing to visit the 180 million years old Akal Wood Fossil Park.
The park is open throughout the week. However, it would be a good idea to check for days and time of operation beforehand. There is a small museum located in the premises. There are various photographs of the fossils with descriptions for those who are interested.
