About Travel to Jaisalmer
Located in the far west of the state of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer is one of the harder reach cities in India located in an arid desert. Jaisalmer emerged as a major settlement in the 12th Century after the construction of a large fort, known as Jaisalmer Fort or the Golden Fort, on a small hill overlooking what is now a city with 800,000 permanent residents. Jaisalmer Fort is 460 metres long and 230 metres and surrounded by three ringss of defence walls accessible via 4 large fortified gates. The fort has several thousand permanent residents who are believed to be (for the most part) descendents of people who used to live and work in the fort when it was a fully functional residence for the local rulers. The fort is open to tourists, and has shops, restaurants and hotels inside the fort itself.
Jaisalmer also has some interesting and lively markets, and a few other well known tourist attractions including the Bada Bagh, a complex of memorials to various members of the local royal family, a cluster of five well preserved traditional houses, and Tanot Mata Temple, which is a 9th Century Hindu temple located outside the city near the border with Pakistan.
The other attraction which Jaisalmer offers is a chance to visit the Thar Desert. Expeditions in the desert on camels lasting up to a week can be arranged with local tour companies, as can shorter and easier trips by jeep. Every February a Desert Festival takes place near Jaisalmer with the people of the Thar Desert coming together to participate in traditional activities like camel racing, and performance of folk music and traditional dance.
