Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer

Layered with heritage and adventure, Jaisalmer is a perfect blend of beguiling desert and the glory of history. A city with castles enveloped in yellow sandstone and golden dunes offer a pleasant yet gripping sight to the visitor. Known as the ‘Golden City’ because of its prominent golden hues makes Jaisalmer, is one of the most beautiful cities of Rajasthan which cannot be missed on the itinerary list of a vacationer. Enriched with mesmerizing forts, magnificent Havelis, lakes and embellished temples, it is hard to miss a glimpse of this princely state. Located in the North-Western State of Rajasthan in India, Jaisalmer provides a perfect escape under the star-strewn sky during a camel ride across the desert.

The city offers a unique and insightful experience when navigated through its narrow alleys. During a stroll on these streets, it is hard to ignore the local shops offering a blend of culture and tradition in the intricate handicrafts created meticulously by artisans. There are several reasons behind Jaisalmer being the most preferred and prominent tourist spot in Rajasthan. ‘The Hill Fort of Jaisal’ has tales to tell through its bewitching structures and Havelis but it is equally important to plan the trip in a manner so that the trip doesn’t end up half-baked despite the city having plenty of spots worth exploring! Last but not the least, the saturated backdrops of almost every structure and spot in the city makes up for a perfect photograph palette to channelize the inner photographer within you.

Summer- If you are planning a trip to Jaisalmer, keep your summer vacations booked for another place. The temperature soars up to 44 degrees making the heat unbearable without any respite from the rain.

Monsoon- The temperature drips down a bit but the humidity shoots up thus the downpour provides only momentary relief from the heat. A trip to Jaisalmer is less feasible and more tiring during both summer and monsoon months.

Winter- As autumn hits, the month of September until Mid March makes Jaisalmer, a warm and welcoming city. The pleasant weather during the month of October and the camel ride across the vast stretch of the desert under the starry night is an indelible experience. However, the best time to hit the golden city is during the annual Jaisalmer Desert Festival held during February or Late January.

Place to visit

The Jaisalmer Fort


The city is full of tourist attractions with several promising spots. But there are few must-visit places in the princely state which should not be missed at any cost. The Jaisalmer Fort is also known as Sonar Quila or Golden Fort because of its golden sandstone is a perfect escape into the heritage of Rajasthan. A vision of Raja Rawal Jaisal built in 1156 AD, the fort has been a witness to many battles with Mughals, Tughalaqs, Khiljis and Rathore Kings.

Place to visit

Longewala War Memorial, Jaisalmer


The preserved destroyed tanks from the battlefield makes Longewala War Memorial not a mere destination, but trigger an inclination towards the archives to know the sacrifices that built our nation.

Place to visit

Kothari’s Patwon ki Haveli, Jaisalmer


It is yet another magnificent structure with intricate carvings on its walls offering a traditional retreat into time. Walking through the Haveli is an experience that walks you back into the life of Maharaja through the small details of his lifestyle.

Place to visit

Gadsisar Sagar Lake, Jaisalmer


Also known as Gadariya Lake, this man-made lake was built around the 12th- 13th century. Catch a pleasant sight of the migratory birds swinging and swimming around the lake. If you are in Jaisalmer, witness the sunrise at the Gadsisar lake amidst the peace and solace laced in this place.

Visiting a place as hypnotic as Jaisalmer can become an overwhelming experience and it is important to leave no stone unturned in making the experience memorable and worthwhile.

Camel Safari -With the city abundant in mystical architecture and sights to witness and explore but when you are in Jaisalmer, ensure that you do not miss out on strolling through the Havelis and climbing over for a camel safari to watch the quintessential cultural performance.

Breakfast at Khaba Fort -Apart from roaming around the golden city and basking under the yellow sandstones, drop by for a hearty breakfast at Khaba Fort with peacocks as your companion.

Gadsisar Lake -The ‘Golden City’ Jaisalmer gives you a break from the clamour and cacophony of everyday lives. Do not return without paddling a boat at Gadsisar Sagar Lake and enjoy the flush of cold winds on your face.

And before you plan to end your trip, return with a souvenir by shopping the spectacular embroidery of Jaisalmer at Gandhi Darshan Emporium, Jaisalmer Handloom, and Khadi Gramodyog Bhawan.

It is important to stay comfortable to make the most out of the trip. Considering the dusty weather of Jaisalmer and its deserts, carry a pair of shades and stay comfortable in sneakers. Plan a trip during autumn or in the month of January until Mid March as the weather is pleasant and favourable for taking a stroll around the deserts and dunes.
