About Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer is an erstwhile princely state in Rajasthan named after Maharawal Jaisal Singh, a Rajput king who founded the city in 1156 AD. Jaisalmer means 'the Hill Fort of Jaisal'. The mud fortress contains the palaces, Jain temples and houses that are finely sculptured. Through the ages the fort was a strategic stopover for exotic spice and precious silk laden caravans from Persia to Delhi or Sind.

Jaisalmer is often referred as the "Golden City of India" - the fort architecture is of yellow sandstone and the yellow sand all around lends the region a yellowish-golden aura- and a stark austere beauty. It also happens to be a living fort and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
