VISIT THE GOLDEN FORT IN INDIA "THE JAISALMER FORT"
The Jaisalmer Fort is one of the largest forts in the world. It is called the Sonar Qila in the local language as it is made of yellow sandstone. The Jaisalmer Fort takes on a yellow hue in the sun rays and turns a beautiful honey gold colour at sunset. The golden yellow colour of the fort makes it camouflaged in the sandy stretches of Jaisalmer. Furthemore, the Jaisalmer Fort is the only living fort in the country.It is home to a number of people and is noted for the palaces, Jain temples, Laxminath temple, massive gateways and merchant havelis that are enclosed within its walls. Of late, the Jaisalmer Fort has been facing issues due to seepage problems. Water from the restaurants and hotels within the fort is seeping through the walls and is causing it damage.Location: On fort kothri para, Rajasthan 345001Best time to visit: October to March
The whole city of Jaisalmer is engulfed in golden colour. The dividers, the circles, the pavements, the sidewalks, the houses, everything follows the same colour code as the fort itself. In fact, Jaisalmer Marriott is also built with the same stones and looks like a mini fort in itself. We went straight to have a glimpse of the Jaisalmer fort. 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.
We can call it ' The only living fort in india'.The Jaisalmer Fort is the second-oldest fort in the state of Rajasthan, and the oldest continuously inhabited fort in India. It was built on a hill in the 12th century by Rajput ruler Rawal Jaisal and the best thing about this fort is people are still staying in this fort with address line includes "in Jaisalmer Fort".
