Jaisalmer Travel Guide

Jaisalmer is a breathtaking heritage city that lies in the heart of the Thar Desert near Rajasthan's remote western border, surrounded by sand dunes. Jaisalmer would be just any Rajasthani town but, looming over the city, towering nearly 100 metres over the city and apparently rising out of the desert haze, is the spectacular golden Jaisalmer Fort. Made of yellow sandstone, the fort inspires wonder at its beauty like perhaps none other in India. It has the appearance of a giant sandcastle shimmering in the desert heat like a mirage that will soon disappear. Contrary to expectation though, the Jaisalmer Fort is a living breathing entity. The fort actually functions as intended, and is still the site of an entire living area, home to a quarter of the city's population.

Jaisalmer offers a unique travel experience with it's heritage sites and magnificent sand dunes. This heritage city is a must see destination.

Jaisalmer Fort, Havelis and Gadsisar Lake are the places that are not to be missed out on your trip to this beautiful city. A visit to the havelis of Jaisalmer will remind you of the grandiose Rajputana culture that exudes valour, martial pride, warmth and passion.
