Your trip to Jaisalmer is incomplete without paying a visit to remarkably celebrated Golden fort or Sonar Quila, Jaisalmer Fort in Rajasthan that stands approximately 30 metres over the city and is a beautiful abode of mammoth ramparts. Your eyes will be jammed at this stately bastion that looks extremely eye-catching because of splendid shades of the desert ambiance and the setting suns that truly give it a fairy tale look. The credit of its formation goes to the then Rawal Jaisal in 1156 A.D. who belonged to the Bhati Rajput clan and seems to raise its head high on Trikuta Hill amidst the bright stretches of the striking Thar Desert. Further, the fort seems to have been a silent observer of what happened in the citys glorious past and thus transports your memories to the bygone days. As a result, its unique edifice that includes two hundred and fifty feet tall, 30 feet high; 99 bastions, 92 of which were constructed between the period 1633 and 1647 will surely leave you thunderstruck. But the entrance to the fort is only provided by Ganesh Pol, Bhoot Pol, Suraj Pol, and Hawa Pol. Above and beyond, the other attractions of this Jaisalmer fort are wells, captivating havelis, revered Jain shrines dating back between 12th to the 15th centuries and glimpses of exquisite Rajput and Islamic architectural styles have lot more to teach students of cross-cultural merging and thus will give a bravura meaning to your Rajasthan tour.
