Visit the Fort, the Haveli and take a camel ride in the desert

Jaisalmer literally means 'Fort of Jaisal'. The desert city is also called the Golden city thanks to the colour it gets from the yellow sandstone used for construction of the buildings. Jaisalmer is closest to the India-Pak border and stands in the heart of the Thar Desert. Jaisalmer has come a long ways since being an important town along the ancient camel-silk route ran through India and Central Asia. Over the centuries, the fortunes of Jaisalmer have risen and fallen thanks to the geo-politics of the region and, of course, emergence of newer trading routes. The rise in sea trade, during the British Era, lent a crippling blow to Jaisalmer. But it was during India's darkest hour that Jaisalmer's fortunes rose once again. During India's wars with Pakistan in 1965 the Indian government realized the importance of Jaisalmer's strategic position along the border.
