Jaisalmer

With its picture-perfect honey coloured fort, this magical desert city is quintessential Rajput India. Protected by a nine mile curtain wall, the fort sits high above the city and is a rabbit-warren of narrow streets, Jain temples, stately haveli homes and royal palace apartments – all little-changed since medieval times. Located on the western extremity of the Thar Desert, Jaisalmer developed into a busy overland trading outpost and as the wealth of its inhabitants grew, the city quickly became a regionally important power in its own right. The main reason for any visit to Jaisalmer is to see the UNESCO protected fort, explore the atmospheric lanes, visit merchant havelis and enter some of the more important temples. To this day the fort remains a place of living history and is a home to some and a place of work to many. We have over 25 years’ experience planning tailor-made holidays and tours to India.
