Jaisalmer is the most magical and vibrant of the desert cities of Rajasthan. ‘The Golden City’ and World Heritage Site was once known as the Jaisalmer state. The yellowish sandstone is crowned by a fort that contains the palace and several ornate Jain temples. Jaisalmer’s origin can be traced back to the Rajput chieftain, Rawal Jaisal, who set the foundations of the fort in this strategic but formidable part of the desert. From the 17th century onwards, the city prospered. It became a coveted stronghold on the great Spice Route from Persia and Afghanistan. Today, Jaisalmer is a lively hub, indeed an entry point to the Thar – the mysterious yet serene Great Indian Desert.
