  • Only fort in India, what is still alive from inside. No entrance fee, at the beginning you will find paid guides. Fort territory is full tourist shops, cafes and hotels. Most of locals make living from tourism, that is why many cafes are located on top floors. From rooftops you can have good views to the city.

  • This is a classic and beautiful example of Rajasthan fort, beautifully built. The people live inside and outside of the fort making it actually a town. A good view of the city is seen from the view points. The Jain temple inside the fort is must see.

  • No great history attached to this fort, but it looks magnificent. Also, one of the oldest( constructed in 1156!) and only few that are 'living forts' today. Nothing much to see inside the fort though. Worth visiting while in Jaisalmer, but nothing great about it.

  • This is one of the largest fort in the world. This fort is a city or a small town itself. The highest point of the fort will give the view of the city. Their are many shops situated inside the fort (bargaining skills must be strong or else you will be wrongly charged). Interesting place to visit as it has a vast history..make sure to consult a travel guide(you can get one outside the fort). TIP- do carry your hat or sunglasses

  • True to word the color of the fort is the most impressive. The fort was established in 11 century. It does have some impressive carvings on the the yellow sandstone. Not much of history displayed like the other forts of Rajasthan. Looks like it has to do a lot of catching up with the other forts of Rajasthan. The negatives are many as it not well maintained. As the fort is a residence to a sizeable population of locals, the smells, sights etc are typically unclean.
