innermost wall was used by Rajput warriors to
hurl boiling oil, water, and massive blocks to
their enemies. The year it was built in is 1156
A.D. People from the fort use scooters or
motorcycle to and from the road and main gates,
small standing souvenir and food shops from the
residents offer their specialties. A Huge maze of
going up and down the alleys call for a great
adventure and work-out for those whod love to
venture inside the fort. For a dining experience,
the rooftops restaurant provides an exceptional
view, you may choose any restaurant youd like
but coming from experience, the Jaisalmer Oasis
restaurant can provide a good 360 view with live
music performance. An option to dine with other
cuisines include French and Italian are seen
along the sides of pathways.
Visit the Raj Mahal, Jain temples and Laxminath
temples, they may require a ticket, but worth
every penny once inside the temple, intricate
carvings and great attention to detail amaze its
foreign or local visitors. The entrance fee is
Rs 50 per person. Raj Mahal is a Royal Palace
where the Royal family are residing, this
imposes 7-story and popular for lattice work
architecture, while the Jain temples are a set
of 7 temples which most distinct is Parsvanath
temple, with the largest temple holding finest
carvings. Laxmikanth temple, one of the oldest
temple, is dedicated to the Goddess of wealth,
Goddess Lakshmi and her husband Hindu God
Vishnu, The temple houses idols of the Gods and
paintings. The best time to visit is around 600
am to 600 pm every Mondays through
Saturdays. Dont be surprised if you see random
animals on the street such as dogs, pigs, and
cows, they are tamed and taken care of by owners
and most tourists get lost in their way so better
get a good guide or travel buddy and make sure
not to get separated.
While on the walk, you might notice large houses
ornate with sandstone carvings, decorated
windows and archways are Merchant Havelis built
by wealthy merchants dates back on 15th century
and some descendants of these merchants still
live in these houses. Experiencing the full
splendor of the city, Jaisalmer Desert Festival
is held during months of late January or
February. You can join or enjoy the sight in awe
of several competitions for finest facial hair,
turban tying, camel racing, a parade of camels
and colorful fancy dressed natives, music, and
dances follow, where this event continues till
the second day for bizarre camel activities
including camel decorating and camel polo. While
if planning to visit the desert camp, the best
time would be early October. The fort gets
visitors all year round so even if there is no
festival on your day of the visit, jaisalmer tour
packages ,the journey and the movie-like scenery
is all worth it.
