One of the 32 UNESCO World Heritage sites in India, the town is built upon a yellow sandstone ridge, with a fort at the top. Jaisalmer is also right in the center of the great Thar Desert, affording tourists a true desert town experience. A walk through Sona Kila (the Golden Fort), and a drive to the sand-dunes of Sam and Khuri and camel rides await the visitor to this medieval town.
Sonar Kila, the Golden Fort, is undoubtedly the biggest attraction of Jaisalmer. A heritage walk through the Golden Fort will give you a glimpse into the palaces, temples and culture of Jaisalmer. Apart from the fort, there are many richly embellished mansions, monuments and cenotaphs which you can visit by car. An hour’s drive from the town will bring you to the sand-dunes of Sam and Khuri, both popular venues for sunset camel rides.
