Like the golden mirage, Jaisalmer lies in the heart of Thar Desert. This amber-hued city bedazzles gloriously in the early morning, glows peculiarly during sunset and as the night descends, the sky looks as if on flames, till it becomes black.

Bhatti Rajput ruler Rawal Jaisal, after whom the city finds its name, founded Jaisalmer in 1156. On advice of a local hermit Eesaal he chose the Tricut Hills as his new abode abandoning his vulnerable old fort at Luderwa just 16 kilometers northwest.

For years Jaisalmer remained untouched by the outside influences. The life within the citadel conjures up images of medieval majesty visible in its narrow lanes, magnificent palace, havelis, temples and of course skilled artisans and ubiquitous camels.

One of the major attractions of Jaisalmer is the daunting 12th century Jaisalmer Fort. The beautiful havelis constructed by wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer are yet another interesting sights of the desert city. More over, the sloppy sand dunes, camel safari along the dunes, and the desert citadel are truly golden fantasy in Thar Desert.

Sun set at Jaisalmer, making the sky golden brown is a spectacular sight. The perfect time to visit the golden city is during the Desert Festival, held in Jan/Feb every year, when the city reverberates to the sound of melodious tunes and rhythms. Folk dances, exciting competitions and contests, especially the turban-tying contest, Mr. Desert contest and camel races enliven the festivities. Colorful craft bazaars are set up for the occasion and a sound and light spectacle is organized with folk artists performing against the splendid backdrop of the famous Sam sand dunes on the full moon night.
