Jaisalmer - A Poetry Written In Sand


Bada Bagh Chhatries, Jaisalmer TourPopularly known as the Golden City, Jaisalmer was founded in 1156 AD atop the Trikuta Hill by Rawal Jaisal, a successor of the Yadav Clan. The city of Jaisalmer is located in the heart of the Great Indian Thar Desert and looks like a poem written in sand. The golden colored sand surrounding the city adds charm to it. It is believed that Lord Krishna, the head of Yadav Clan predicted to Arjuna that years later a descendant of the Yadav clan would lay the foundation of his kingdom on top of the Trikuta Hill and this prediction manifested in 1156 AD when the city was founded.


Jaisalmer is endowed with several tourist attractions:


Jaisalmer Fort: It is the most popular destination of Jaisalmer. The beauty of the fort makes one gasp in awe. It was built in 1156 by Rawal Jaisal. Fortified with massive walls, the fort is extremely beautiful from inside. The fort has beautiful establishments such as Raj Mahal, Jain Temples and the Laxminath Temple. It greatly inspired the famous Indian film maker Satyajit Ray who made a film on it.


Patwon ki haveli: It was built by the members of a very rich merchant family. It is the most stunning haveli of Jaisalmer.


Salim Singh ki haveli: Built in 1815, this haveli is famous for its arched roofs and finely carved brackets in the form of the national bird peacock.


Nathmalji ki haveli: It is noted for its ornamental beauty.


Camel Safaris: Your visit to Rajasthan remains incomplete if you discard the chance of riding on a camel. And Jaisalmer camel safaris give you an enchanting experience of a desert.


Several museums in the city display royal possessions of the bygone era.
