Jaisalmer “The Golden City of India” The unique tourist destination of its kind, having its own worth with many reasons to visit. The Rajput Ruler Rawal Jaisal, after whom the city finds its name, founded Jaisalmer in 1156 A.D. The Jaisalmer fort known as Sonar Quila or the Golden Fort rises from the sand and merges with the golden hues of the desert ambience. One of the very few “living forts” in the world, as nearly one fourth of the old city’s population still resides within the fort. For the better part of its 800-year history, the fort was the city of Jaisalmer. The first settlements outside the fort walls, to accommodate the growing population of Jaisalmer, are said to have come up in the 17th century.
The setting sun in its most colorful shades gives it a fairy tale appearance. It is simply magical – as the bastions envelop a whole township that consists of the palace complex. This unique living center, formerly an ancient fort, is home to thousands of people with colorful shops and unique corners in honeycombed old houses on crossing lanes. Walking past houses and shops and stop for a cup of masala tea on a rooftop beautiful restaurants for spectacular panoramic views.
This amazing place having Jaisalmer Fort and the Beautiful Havelis which were built by wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer are yet another interesting aspect of the desert city. And you can let your eyes caress the sloping sand dunes while you ramble your way in a camel safari. The desert citadel is truly a golden fantasy in the Thar Desert.
