Jaisalmer Fort

Jaisalmer Fort

Feel your heart miss a beat at the enthralling sight of the imposing Jaisalmer Fort, whose each contour, battlement, pillar and stone seems to have risen out of the glorious pale yellow Jaisalmer sands.

Perched atop the 80-meter high Trikuta Hill in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India, the imposing Jaisalmer Fort was constructed in the year 1156 A.D. to mark the establishment of Rawal Jaisal's supremacy in the region.

With an average height of 250-feet, Jaisalmer Fort stands as a proud reminder of Jaisalmer's glorious history. A 30-feet tall crenellated sandstone wall that is adorned with 92 bastions surrounds the Jaisalmer Fort and creates an awe-inspiring effect on you during your Rajasthan holiday.

Feel enthralled at the bustling shops and craft workshops that thrive near the fort walls and transport you into a bygone era. You feel caught in a time warp as you stroll along the passageways, colonnaded halls, intricately carved screens, richly carved sandstone facades and lavishly decorated walls.

The Jaisalmer Fort walls have a magnetic charm that speak to you in an indefinable language and acquaint you with royal intrigues as you walk past the rooms, hallways, halls and other interesting places within the fort.

The Jaisalmer Fort is popularly referred to as the Golden Fort as it seems to reflect the lustrous gold sunrays that bathe the yellow Jaisalmer deserts during the day.

The Jaisalmer Fort is counted among the star tourist attractions of Rajasthan and is a must visit during your Jaisalmer tours as it is the second most old military fortress in Rajasthan, North India.
