India Taj Mahal Tours
Rising from the heart of the Thar Desert like a golden mirage is the city of Jaisalmer. The name Jaisalmer evokes a vivid image of sheer magic and brilliance of the desert. The exotic , remote and beautiful Jaisalmer is a bit of paradox in itself. Being located into the west in the thar desert where one could only expect barren land and near desolution out there ,still this frontier town is today one of the Rajasthan's best loved tourist destination. Local colours and warmth prevail over the inhospitable and forbidding terrain, including a certain kind of magical appeal into the medieval town.

A commanding fort etched in yellow sandstone stands with all its awesome splendor, dominating the amber-hued city. Jaisalmer is atypical Rajput settlement. Rawal Jaisal , a descendent of the yadav Clan and a Bhati Rajput ,laid the foundation of this city in 1156 A D. Trikuta was the hill chosen and Jaisal abodoned his old fort at Lodurva and established his new capital here, which came to be known as Jaisalmer.

The life within the citadel conjures up images of medieval majesty visible in its narrow lanes strewn with magnificent palaces, havelis, temples and of course skilled artisans and ubiquitous camels. the setting turn Jaisalmer into a beautiful golden brown is a spectacular sight.

India Taj Mahal ToursThe perfect time to visit the golden city is during the Desert Festival held in Jan/Feb. every year, when the city reverberates to the sound of melodious tunes and rhythms. Folk dances, exciting competitions and contest, especially the turban raying contest.

Mr. Desert contest and camel races enliven the festivals colorful craft bazars are setup for the occasion and a soundand light spectacle is organized with folk artistes performing against the spledid backdrop of the famous sam sand dunes on the full moon night. Surely a not-to-be-missed events. Its like straight out of an Arabian Nights fable. The name Jaisalmer induces a dramatic picture of utter magic and brilliance of the desert. The hostile terrain not with standing the warmth and colour of people is simply over whelming.

One of the main draws is the daunting 12th century Jaisalmer Fort. The beautiful havelis which were built by wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer are yet another interesting aspect of the desert city. And you can let your eyes caress the sloppy sand dunes while you ramble your way in a Camel Safari.

Ages have gone by and the monuments of Jaisalmer have withstood the buffeting winds of the desert all through. Jaisalmer is a marvel of beautiful culture and harsh climatic conditions, together amounting to a memorable experience. The old city was completely encircled by wall but much of it is now pulled down sadly for want of building material in recent years.

The massive golden fort, which is the essence of Jaisalmer, is entered through First Gate. Is a burrow of narrow streets complete with Jain Temples and old palaces. The main market the Bhatia Market is right below the hill. The bank, offices and several shops are also located near the Amar Sagar Gate to the west.
