Living inside the fort

Jaisalmer – the golden city – is one of the few cities which still has a living fort.

As this is the main road into the fort it is obvious why there aren’t many cars inside, making it very relaxed to walk.

It is quite obvious why Jaisalmer is called the golden city. The nicely sculpted sandstone decorated many houses.
