Jaisalmer Tourism

Adorned with dunes of golden sand and ancient castles, havelis and Jain temples clad in golden yellow sandstone, the city of Jaisalmer is situated in the heart of the Thar Desert. Jaisalmer literally means ‘the hill fort of Jaisal’ and was founded by Raja Rawal Jaiswal. The city was noted as one of the prime spots in Indian history because major trade routes which connected India with Persia, Egypt and Africa passed through Jaisalmer. The arid location is quite colorful with a very rich culture and the existence of breathtaking heritage sites is a proof of it. The best time to visit Jaisalmer is October-March when it is not too hot and it is easy to spot tourists around Jaisalmer enjoying the breeze and the visual treat they are offered.

The Jaisalmer Fort is the major attraction. It showcases incredible craftsmanship and is one of the best architectural structures of the world. The Desert Safari in Jaisalmer is also quite popular. One gets to choose to go on a camel safari or a jeep safari and also gets to enjoy a traditional Rajasthani meal and watch musical dance programmes at the end of the safari. The Gadisar Lake surrounded by ornate temples and shrines around it and Jain temples which feature intricate carvings are also major attractions of Jaisalmer. The Tazia Tower and Badal palace and the legendary Kuldhara village are also must-visits before you take off from Jaisalmer. The nearest airport is in Jodhpur. The railway network has established good connection between the major cities of India and Jaisalmer. ‘The Palace on Wheels’ option can also be considered. Well maintained roads ensure regular bus service too.
