Famous for the Golden fort
Jaisalmer a beautiful city with harsh climatic conditions is located in the heart of the Thar Desert. Rightly called the museum city Jaisalmer involves vivid visions of valor, chivalry and love.
The golden city was founded by Rawal Jaisal, a descendant of the Yadav, a Bhati Rajput in 1156 A.D. It was on the advice of a hermit Eesul, that he also shifted his capital from Lodurva. A legend goes that once when Lord Krishna had visited this place, had predicted that a Yadav would build his capital over here which would be formidable for centuries. Jaisalmer was well protected due to the hostile landscape and Bhati Rajputs, who are known for their valor and chivalry. They levied taxes on the caravans that traveled the ancient spice route on their way to Delhi and went on rampage over the nearby fortress acquiring huge wealth for the city. Thus not only the royalties but also the merchants benefited and they displayed their wealth in their havelis. The glory of Jaisalmer got affected with the advent of the sea trade. Today this desert city is famous for its intricately carved havelis and old Jain temples. The sand dunes make it one of the most important tourist destinations in the country.
The perfect time to visit is during the desert festival in January / February, when the city dances to the melodious rhythms.
