No other town in Rajasthan epitomises the desert culture like Jaisalmer. Isolated by the sand dunes of the Thar desert, Jaisalmer evokes exotic desert mystery and the allied camel trade routes of the past era. A former medieval trading center and princely state in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer stands in the heart of the Thar Desert. Often referred to as the “Golden City,” it is distinguished by its yellow sandstone architecture that turns golden in the setting sun. Dominating the skyline is Jaisalmer Fort, a massive hilltop citadel rising from the sandy plains like a mirage telling tales of the bygone era. Behind its massive walls stand the ornate Maharaja’s Palace and intricately carved Jain temples. It’s hard not to be enchanted by the desert citadel as you walk around and look out on the shimmering expanse of the desert in this rather remote but certainly not forgotten location. Take a camel safari into the desert to appreciate the sheer isolation of the location.
