  • Jaisalmer
  • Jaisalmer is named after its founder, Maharaja Jaisal Singh. In the older times, Jaisalmer was the main trade link to Egypt and Arabia and would have rich Asian and Indian merchants travelling in camel caravans to do all their trading. The Bhati rulers would often plunder these caravans. Although Jaisalmer was away from external influences for years, it was Allauddin Khalji who had besieged the court in attempts to captivate the Queen, Padmini Devi and take back the treasure looted from his caravans. When the fall of the court was inevitable, the women of the fort committed Jauhar and the men killed themselves before having to surrender to their enemies.

  • The architectural marvels of Jaisalmer have astonishingly withstood the harsh climatic conditions of the desert through the years. Jaisalmer was also said to be encircled by a massive golden wall which has crumbled over the years. Jaisalmer is famous for its desert festival that is held twice a year where the residents perform arts and dances. The culture, warm people and extremely beautiful monuments will leave a lasting impression in the heart of any passer-by.
