Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer – much has been written about this city but nothing can prepare the visitor for the sheer magic and brilliance of this Desert City.  Rawal Jaisal laid the foundation of the city in 1156 AD. The Jaisalmer Fort stands almost 100 metres over the city with its 99 bastions, several entrances, a group of Jain Temples from 12th to 15th century.  The other places of interest include Tazia Tower with its five tiered splendour, each storey graced by a delicately carved balcony for its intricately latticed and conspicuous facades. Outside the Fort is Manek Chowk, which is centre of local activity.  Walking into the lanes most famous carved havelies are located.  The best known are Patwon-ki-Haveli, Nathmalji-k-Haveli and Salim Singhji Ki Haveli built in 18th and 19th centuries.Sam sand dunes, 42 km from Jaisalmer, are one of the  major attractions of visit to this area.  'The Great Thar Desert'. Sam has a truly magnificent stretch of sweeping dunes, with sparse or no vegetation.  A camel ride at sunset standing on the Dunes of the Thar provides a majestic view.
