jaisalmer City Details

Also referred to as the ‘Sun City’, Jaisalmer is a sparkling mirage in the vast Thar Desert. No wonder it makes for one of the most prominent places of tourist interest in the state of Rajasthan. This beautiful city was named after Maharawal Jaisal Singh, the founder of the city and a Rajput king. Another name for the city is ‘the Golden City’ owing to its yellow sand and use of sandstone in construction of structures to impart a golden yellow appearance. Jaisalmer is widely celebrated for its stunning forts, huge lakes, and mesmerising gardens. The city provides visitors a glimpse of the rich cultural heritage combined with authentic colours of the state of Rajasthan. Visitors are mostly attracted to the colourful festivals of the city. The Sun City is home to a huge number of artistic structures and monuments of local historical importance. Visitors are mesmerised to see the medieval fortress here and the walled settlement. The neighbouring barren landscape is an extension to the overall charm of the city. It enhances its ascetic beauty. The camel safaris in desert dunes are widely popular with tourists. Some of the hottest attractions in Jaisalmer include Jaisalmer Fort, Jaisalmer fort palace museum, Desert Culture Centre & Museum, Raj Mahal (Royal palace), Jain temples, Laxminath temple, Gadsisar Lake, Jaisalmer Folklore Museum, Government Museum, etc....
