Jaisalmer is the top tourist destination of Rajasthan and it has many alluring forts and temples built by Rajput rulers. Jaisalmer Fort built by Raja Rawal Jaisal is the only fort in India where people still live. To travel inside the fort during night feels like you are in a movie. This fort is the major attraction of Jaisalmer crafted out of charming yellow sandstones. This fort attracts large number of Jain people due to a Jain Temple of rich architectural value.
Jaisalmer houses a huge garden called Bada Bagh where Royal families were cremated. Sunrise and sunset of this place are worth capturing. Patwon-Ki-Haveli is the mind blowing combination of five havelis erected by a very well known trader of those times named Guman Chand for his sons. This five-storied complex showcases the peculiar art form which leaves you with your eyes wide open.
The hub of iconic photography, Jaisalmer is as pretty as a picture. The mesmerizing Gadisar Lake was the major source of water in the ancient period and today it offers a lovely boating experience. The banks of this lake are designed by beautiful temples and Chhatris. If you want to know the history behind Great Indian Desert (Thar Desert), you will feel amazed in Thar Heritage Museum. You will be totally soaked up into its history with the help of finest paintings and artifacts. Salim Singh Ki Haveli famous for its peacock shaped roof is an astounding tourist place and is of great historical value. On the other side, Nathmal Ki Haveli represents the alluring blend of Islamic and Rajputana architectures and is one of the most captivating havelis of Jaisalmer. The Sun City has a popular haunted place known as Kuldhara which was once a much flourished town. But today it is a barren deserted land. Few adventuresome tourists also make their way to Kuldhara if they are touring in Jaisalmer. If you happen to be in this city, these are the top sightseeing places you can explore.
