The name of the city means The Hill Fort of Jaisal. The Golden City of India is known mainly for the beautiful sand dunes, marvelous palaces and old bungalows, the tranquility of the Jain Temples and of course the view of the Thar Desert. The state is full of color and is enriched with the love of art and culture. Not just the camel safaris, but sitting with the folk singers and enjoying their music about everyday life in Rajasthan is sheer bliss. The music of Jaisalmer is a mixture of folk and Indian Classical. Their language is influenced from Sindh and is a bit different from typical Rajasthani. The Gadisar Lake, Jaisalmer Fort and the Desert National Park are among the many attractions in the beautiful city. The climate is extreme so cover your body whenever you are out to escape from the heat of the sun.
