Sonar Fort, Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer in Rajasthan located in the heart of Thar desert. The magnificent city of Jaisalmer is named after founder Rawal Jaisal. Founded on what was the cross-roads of lucrative trade routes, this remote settlement came to be celebrated for the valor of its rulers, and for the aesthetic sense represented by the palaces and havelis of Jaisalmer.

Attractions of Jaisalmer
Sonar Quila/Fort, Jaisalmer

The Jaisalmer Fort : The golden-hued Jaisalmer Fort or old name Tirkuta fort 'Sonar Qilla' is visible miles away from the town. With its 99 bastions, the fort presents a breathtaking spectacle in the afternoon sun. In fact the fort is a part of the desert citadel, walking up and down the cobbled and narrow lanes, one gets the feeling of a different age altogether.

Jain Temples : The fort of Jaisalmer has three exquisitely carved Jain Temples dedicated to the Jain Tirthankaras - Rikhabdevji and Sambhavnathji. Gyan Bhandar or Library : Some of the oldest manuscripts of India are found in this library established as a part of Jain temples.

Gadisar Lake : The Gadisar Lake was once the water supply of the city and there are may small temples and shrines around it. The small museum here has displays of folk art.

Salim Singh-Ki-Haveli : It was the residence of the powerful Mohta Family, the hereditary ministers of the Jaisalmer rulers. The blue cupola roof is distinctive, a facade which is carved all over and an exquisite projecting balcony adorning the top storey.

Gadisar Lake, Jaisalmer

Patwon-Ki-Haveli : It is one of the largest and most elaborate houses in Jaisalmer. It is five storeys high, extensively carved.

Nathmalji-Ki-Haveli : This haveli of Jaisalmer dates back to 19th century and was reputed as a Prime Minister's house. Though the motif used by the one is not similar to the other, yet they are in harmony. One has to look closely to spot any dissimilarity. The superb craftsmanship of the stone carver is illustrated in the gossamer quality of the screened windows.
