Jaisalmer Fort: Rising Above the Desert

Jaisalmer is by far my favorite city in India. It's laid back ambiance, unique landscapes, and friendly people made me want to stay longer, but alas I couldn't stretch my stay longer because we had train tickets out of the city booked.

Jaisalmer: The City that Glitters Like Gold

Jaisalmer is a laid back town with unique, golden structures that make it my favorite place in Rajasthan. The streets are lined with golden structures that vary in shades as the sun hits its peak till it sets. The historical streets and fort are brimming with life that must have been around for decades. All these make Jaisalmer a fun town to walk around and get lost in.
