Jaisalmer, often described as the “Golden City of India,” is a mystical and historic city located on India’s westernmost frontier, emerging from the heart of the Thar Desert. Renowned for its yellow sand and sandstone architecture that gives it a golden hue, Jaisalmer is globally celebrated for its opulent palaces and forts. With a history dating back to the 12th century, it has evolved into one of India’s premier tourist destinations, occupying a prominent place among the attractions of Rajasthan’s desert landscape. The Jaisalmer Fort, also known as the Sonar Qila (Golden Fort), stands as the city’s most iconic landmark.
