Go to Jaisalmer fort and book an audio guide. Guide will take you to King's chamber and it's delightful to watch. The facts about the chamber are mind boggling. It's a must visit place if you are in Jaisalmer.

I would allow 1 to 2 hours, and wander around on your own or get an audio guide or pay a guide to take you around - whichever you prefer.
