You might think it hard for a fort to be lovely, but Jaisalmar is an exception to the rule. There are intricate sandstone carvings throughout the palace, and lovely places to sit and admire the view.

For architecture lovers, this is a must see place! You can get lost on beautiful streets inside of this fort, you'll find a magic place full of history, beautiful people, a good variety of souvenir shops, good places to eat or have a tasty lassi with a fantastic roof top view.

This was my favorite fort in the tri cities of udaipur, jaisalmer and jodhpur. The palace within the fort is something not be missed. I took my time visiting all parts of the palace. We even stayed within the fort premises and it was an unforgettable experience. Top destination !
