The City of Jaisalmer is a masterpiece battlement located in the middle of the sandy plains of Thar. This is the best place for enjoying camel safari, desert experience and much more. The fort of Jaisalmer covers the ancient city within it and surrounds it with 99 bastions.
The city still thrives inside the fort. However, modern city has expanded outside the fort too. The ancient city is riddled with numerous forts & palaces, havelis, interesting shops and much more stuffed in this citadel.
Jaisalmer, also called as the Sun City, this region was brought to today’s glory by Jaisal Singh, the king of Jaisalmer. The entire city is designed with golden yellow sandstone to provide a strategic appeal to the place. When the sun is up in the sky, the fort is camouflaged with the desert, making it hard for enemies to locate the city from a distance. However, the fort is built on a small hill and thus, the inmates will have a clear picture of the enemies approaching.
Today, it is not just a battlement. It is an embodiment of culture, heritage and exotic activities. Jaisalmer is not just about desert and camels. It is one of the most-festival places in the state. The cuisine of the land is rich, even though the list of local ingredients is very limited because of the geographical location and climatic condition.
The battle-scarred fort holds grand beauty within its ancient walls. The main essence of the land is that it has kept itself and its culture safe from the growing commercialization that has engulfed most of the state.
