Jaisalmer TourismThe city has an interesting legend associated with it, according to which, Lord Krishna-the head of the Yadav Clan, foretold Arjuna that a remote descendent of the Yadav Clan would built his kingdom atop the Trikuta Hill. His prophecy was fulfilled in 1156 A.D. when Rawal Jaisal, a descendent of the Yadav Clan and a Bhatti Rajput, abandoned his fort at Lodurva and founded a new capital - Jaisalmer, perched on the Trikuta Hill.

Bahti Rajputs of Jaisalmer were feudal chiefs who lived off the forced levy on the caravans laden with precious silks and spices that crossed the territory enroute Delhi-or-Sind. These caravans earned the town great wealth.

The Jaisamer Fort

Jaisalmer Tourismrises above its city like a mirage from the sands. The second oldest fort in Rajasthan, it was built in 1156 by the Rajput ruler Jaisala. At the time the entire city lay within the fort but as the town prospered and its population grew it spilled out into the land below where merchants set up beautiful Sam Sand Duneshavelis. The most amazing thing though is the fact that till this day 25% of Jaisalmer's population resides within the fort, its temples and palaces are now monuments and part of heritage but the streets are packed with shops, people and children playing hopscotch. Its an extraordinary experience to walk around these still inhabited lanes and feel like you have somehow been transported back in time.
