Jaisalmer Fort, Jaisalmer Reviews
There is a whole city inside the fort. You experience a warmth in your heart when you go there in the evening. People bustling, going about doing their work, the fragrance of incense sticks, soothes you. You see the calming part of Jaisalmer, the architecture is amazing, even normal houses are integrated into the fort, rather people have made the fort into their home. But still, if you visit Jaisalmer then you should definitely visit it, and stay back for the night if possible. The view of the city from the top of the fort is simply amazing.
Jaisalmer- the Golden city, is true to its name. Mind blowing, beautiful intricately carved architecture in Golden Sand stone. Well maintained clean city. A different experience all together. Living within the fort premises, in heritage properties, makes you feel a part of history itself. A perfect blend of traditional ambience with modern amenities. A German bakery with delectable deserts was the icing on the cake.
Historical place with very nice and ancient architecture. A real treat for people who loves visiting historical places. There is good and rich handmade handicraft market and around 5-6 historic Jain temples with old sculptures and architecture. Public Vehicles are allowed till the fort gate and not allowed inside the fort. From there you need to walk in to the fort which is slant and you need to go upwards. People visiting this place should keep this in mind as Senior Citizen might feel it difficult to walk. Auto rickshaws are allowed only sometimes inside the fort.
Had a beautiful experience visiting this place. This place is very big with many shops inside it. Some temples are also there inside. Good place for kids. Many histories are related to this fort. Many guides are also available here. Many historical things are also found here. Nice place to be visited with family members.
It's an amazing heritage of ancient Indian history. A living fort - the only one in India. The second largest Fort of India. A place where the local inhabitants are now operating business... The scenic views are just stunning. You may taking pics of the scenic beauty and the architecture and its never satisfying enough to stop clicking th3 camera. A must visit..
