Within Jaisalmer itself the main attraction is the Jaisalmer Fort, also known as the Golden Fort because of the yellow rock used its construction.

Jaisalmer Fort was built in 1156 and is located overlooking the city on a small hill. The fort measures 460 metres long and 230 metres wide, protected by three rings of walls, and accessible via four large gateways. A community of somewhere between 2,000 and 4,000 people still live inside the fort. Many of these people can trace their ancestors back to people who originally worked and lived within the fort hundreds of years ago. The fort is open to visitors and contains shops, restaurants and even hotels.
