What We Love About Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer is a city in Rajasthan located west of Jaipur. It is often called "The Golden City" due to its sandstone architecture, one of which is the famous Jaisalmer Fort. To the uninitiated, the Jaisalmer Fort features a royal palace and several temples – all of which are intricately sculpted in sandstone. Additionally, tourists must drop by the Patwon Ki Haveli, another intricately carved 19th century palace in the area while a visit at the Thar Heritage Museum will have you learn more about Jaisalmer!
