Attractions of Jaisalmer
The golden - yellow sandstone of Jaisalmer Fort, over 800
years old, crowns the Trikuta Hill. Within its walls,
defended by 99 turrets, lies the old city, nearly a quarter
of modern Jaisalmer.
This group of fine Jain temples were built in the 12th to
15th century within the Jaisalmer Fort. They are beautifully
carved and dedicated to Rishabdevji and Sambhavnathji.
Held in the months of January-February, the Desert Festival
exudes a delightful spirit. For three days, the otherwise
barren land of Jaisalmer comes to life and is clustered with
hordes of colourfully dressed people.
