Jaisalmer Travel Packages & Tours
Known as the “Golden City” and distinguished by its yellow sandstone architecture, Jaisalmer Fort is a sprawling hilltop citadel buttressed by 99 barrel-sided bastions. During your Jaisalmer city tour, you’ll explore the inside of the still-inhabited fort, which is honeycombed with narrow twisting lanes, flanked by pale honey-colored facades covered with latticework and floral designs. The lanes are lined with houses, shops, guesthouses and restaurants.
Your Jaisalmer tour will take you to the royal palace, and an interconnecting treasure trove of seven exquisite Jain temples, dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. The intricate carvings have an exceptional quality because of the soft, warm sandstone. But the city’s real showpieces are its havelis ― residences commissioned by wealthy merchants during the 18th and 19th centuries. You may also wish to go on a camel trek, which provides the romantic opportunity to cross the barren sands and sleep under the stars.
