One of the gates you have to go throught on the waz to the fort. Be careful because otherwise you wont notice it. You will just notice all the shops on the place behind and the view of the fort itself.

The bustling large courtyard shops and stalls outside Surya gate, Suraj Pol, offer all manner of goods and services. On the day we visited this included boys playing cricket on the parapets and a young girl displaying her talents as a tightrope walker whilst her parents collected their daily income from the appreciative passers by.

The Gates are iconic and without any entry fee. Only the King's Court and Queens residences have nominal charges. The scenic beauty is iconic and must visit.

This gate is second gate when you enter Jaisalmer Fort. "Suraj Pol" is written on the gate. The upper part of the gate is quite beautiful. You can also Idol of Ganesha on the to of this gate, which is considered auspicious as per Hindu Religion.

There are a series of gates that you must go through to enter the fort... all are a part of the journey. They are crowded and shared between tourists, locals, motorbikes and tuk tuks and livestock.... and of course horn beeping... which can be deafening inside the gate sections as they can be 8 to 20 metres long... depending on...
