Akal Wood Fossil Park

Millions of years the ocean submerged age Jaisalmer, and the discovery of seashells here emphasizes that belief. The wood fossils at Akal (17 km off the city on the Jaisalmer-Barmer road) are an example of the fossilization archaeologists say occurred 180 million years ago. The story goes that entire forests were so petrified of something that they were converted into stone. The fossils are said to represent non-flowering plants and provide a clue to age of the deposition of sediments, At nearby Kandiala the deposits are probably order, but historians have been unable to ascribe a date to it.
