The Most Popular Sights to Visit in Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer FortJaisalmer Fort
This fort seems to rise out of a desert haze, its yellow sandstone walls and a bastion taking on the golden hue of the afternoon sun gives it the name of Sonar Kila or the Golden Fort.

The Jaisalmer fort stands about 100 m over the city and in fact houses a citadel within its huge ramparts. Walking down the narrow cobbled stone lanes, one can feel the absolute magic of Jaisalmer. Several entrances called Pols, including the Ganesh Pol, Suraj Pol, Bhoota Pol and the Hava Pol guard the Megh Durbar and the Jawahar Mahal, which are exquisitely built and were occupied by the royal family. Outside the fort is the main market place called Manek Chowk. From Manek Chowk, one can walk into the lanes where the famous carved havelis are to be found.

The Havelis of Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer is famous for its intricately latticed havelis with conspicuous facades.

Salim Singh ki Haveli
This haveli was the residence of the powerful Mohta clan - the hereditary ministers of the Jaisalmer rulers. The blue cupola roof is distinctive and an exquisite projecting balcony adorns the top storey.

Patwon ki Haveli
This is one of the largest and most elaborate havelis in Jaisalmer. It is five storeys high and extensively carved.

Nathmalji ki Haveli
One very interesting fact about this haveli is that its two sides were carved by two brothers. Although the motif used by one is not similar to the other, they are in harmony. One has to look very minutely to spot dissimilarities.

Amar Sagar Jain TempleAmar Sagar Jain Temple, Jaisalmer
The Parswanath Temple is the oldest and the most beautiful of the Jain temples. The walls of the sanctum are carved with animal and human figures. There is a small dome which is crowned by an amalak and a water pot containing a lotus flower.
