Jaisalmer Fort - Review
The Jaisalmer fort was the former Maharaja’s Palace and till today maintains its royal ambience and architecture. The Whole palace is carved out in Sandstone and even though much of the palace is going through restoration work, you can still see the bedroom, the silver coronation throne, the royal bed, local stamps and banknotes, sculptures and weapons kept in the museum. Don’t forget to see the city from the gorgeous Balconies that adorn the fort.
The place arranges audio-tours that is a highlight and gives you a peak into the royal life of Jaisalmer while its sheer history and intricate design mesmerises anyone who visits.

Jaisalmer Fort, Jaisalmer Reviews
One of the beautiful fort of Rajasthan. It glow like gold when bright sun rise-the walls of fort becomes golden. Fort entrance, it's structure,logic behind every wall, gate, pillar, home doors. Top view from fort is awesome you can see entire city from it, the last railway station of Rajasthan probably last railway station of India because after it Pakistan start. The fort have 3 Jain tamales, a market and the palaces of king and queen. You may feel proud and you urge reverse time travel so you can understand how the Kings and Queens lived here.
Scenic beauty. We spent our night inside the fort in one of the few good hotels with the locals. Fort is well lighted and has good attractions in the day time. But the walk through it's streets in the night was the one we enjoyed the most. It was so very pleasant in the night as it will be busy in the day time. There are quite a few view points as well throughout the fort.
This is the place where you can get total peace of mind and reliable People with sweet spoken. One of the best visiting places of my life till now. And I would like to go there one more time with my family and all friends...
The majestic fort dominates the city and give a wonderful view of entire Jaisalmer city. Spread into a vast area this fort has hundreds of families staying inside it. Although a large part of the fort has been locked/closed for visitors but still it gives a historical view about its existence and various rulers who ruled it along with a small insight into their lifestyles and few objects which actually were used then.
It's a old fort. But now a days all city public living there by making its own homes. But the older thing still connected with Fort. Surrounding space need to cleane and public also need to take care for wast disposal. Overall place is good. Day Temperature is slightly higher in this area during summer..
