Golden Fort is an 800 year old fort and is also known as the Jaisalmer Fort of Rajasthan. This is one of the most magnificent fortifications of the state and is the second oldest also after the Chittorgarh Palace. The title given to this fairytale fort complex is because of its light color which almost merges with the color of the desert sand like a mirage coming out of it. Jaisalmer City is located in the interiors of the Thar Desert and the King Jaisal planned to make this place his capital. You can come here in the month of February and enjoy the famous Annual Camel Fair and other festivals too.
