Jaisalmer - Must Visit Destinations
  Jaisalmer Fort

This huge fort is made out of natural sandstone, and has the distinction of being the only fort that houses the city’s residents. The intricate carvings of the fort are splendid, and one can easily envision the grandeur of the glorious era long past. Like a yellow sand stone fabric that seems to issue skywards from the golden sands, Jaisalmer Fort standing guard over the desert scape from its 250 feet high perch on the hill within its wall following the contours of the hills, is sheer magic & splendid sight. It also houses an entire township within its huge ramparts. The steep cobble stone pathways leading to the royal palace pass through for gates called Ganesh Pol, Suraj Pol, Hawa Pol and Bhoota Pol. The sharp twists & turns make the fort invincible. The fort has five interconnected palaces. This fort is certainly one of the finest forts of India. It was built in the 11th century, above the 80 m high Trikuta hill, having 99 turrets in it. the fort is a maze of small winding lanes, initially flanked by touristy shops, little child-musicians colourfully dressed and performing traditional songs & dances. women selling imitation silver jewelry. The Fort houses a maharaja's palace, a ceremonial courtyard and beautifully carved Jain temples.

  Sand Dunes of Sam

42 kms west of Jiasalmer are proper sand dunes and popular with camel safaris. This jaisalmer's nearest real Sahara like desert. The sand shimmers under the glow of hot sun highlighting what actually a desert stands for. Various cultural programmes are organised against the backdrop of these facinating dunes. Adventure freaks can go out on a Camel Safari-getting the real feel the desert on the camel. Of course, the sunset at Sam was out-of-this-world. The sand dunes keep changing colour, shadows shifting by the minute.
