Above was the short introduction of city, i had a 3 days trip there. And it was a memorable one, people are so humble there , they are ready to help and explaining everything so well. it was so hot even in the last week of November , it was completely giving me feel that it was May or June of any other normal city.

Jaisalmer is a city where it is very difficult to survive in summers because there is no other source of income other than tourism, thats why people only earn in winters and spend the earning through out the years, this is the only reason i thought of writing about the city, we all know about this city but it is not so well explored .
