Jaisalmer Travel

Built in 12th century, Jaisalmer was founded by Prince Jaisal, a Krishna Vanshi Rajput and hence was named after him. The Jaisalmer induces a vivacious picture of breathtaking and sheen desert. The warmth and the energy that prevail with the local inhabitants make it into a town with a special magic. One of the main attractions is the imposing 12th century Jaisalmer Fort. The exotic Havelis, built by wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer are yet another interesting aspect of the desert city.
