This is one of the very few forts in the world where people still reside. In fact, apart from the last 300 yrs or so, the fort was the city of Jaisalmer after which people started building establishments nearby. We did not visit the fort from inside as we had visited 2 already and 1 more was due in the upcoming days.Tip: Before moving ahead of Jaisalmer, better have your lunch because most of the camps will provide welcome drinks/tea but not lunch.
