Look what I found in Jaisalmer fort, amidst all things touristy 🙂
Jaisalmer Fort is one of the largest forts in the world. It is situated in Jaisalmer city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It was built in 1156 AD by the Bhati Rajput ruler Rawal Jaisal, from where it derives its name. The fort stands proudly amidst the golden stretches of the great Thar Desert, on Trikuta Hill, and has been the scene of many battles. Its massive yellow sandstone walls are a tawny lion color during the day, fading to honey-gold as the sun sets, thereby camouflaging the fort in the yellow desert. For this reason, it is also known as…
Mehrangarh Fort, located in Jodhpur city in Rajasthan state, is one of the largest forts in India.
We started our camel safari at 6.00 AM in the morning. The safari started from our desert camp near Khuri which is 40 kilometres further from the City of Jaisalmer.
Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the most popular edifices of the Jodhpur city of Rajasthan. The Palace is by far the best example of Art Deco Architecture I have seen.
