Jaisalmer - Holiday Tour Packages
Like sand castles that withstood the test of time, the fort of Jaisalmer live up to its name as the Golden Fort (Sonar Qila), especially when the sun shines on it. Combine that with the sand dunes in the vast arid landscape of the Thar Dessert and Jaisalmer will take you to a time and place when the modern world is nothing but a distant memory. It is one holiday destination where you can dare to forget the rest of the world and literally dig your toes in the sand. But not all sightseeing & activities in this place will be hot and sandy.
Places to visit in Jaisalmer
If you were to choose just one place to visit in Jaisalmer, you should travel to the Jaisalmer Fort, a living fortress with over 3000 residents safely ensconced within the walls. Along the narrow winding lanes are houses, temples, guesthouses, restaurants, and handicraft shops. It is a city within a fortress, with four massive gates that are accessible from different points. And in the heart of the city is Dashera Chowk, a square where plenty of action happens. Aside from the Jaisalmer Fort, you can also check out Ghadsisar, a rainwater lake, a Jain Temple, Suryagarh, and many others. Wherever you choose to go, you will find something exciting to see and do.
