I am a kind of traveller that enjoys offbeat travels and hate touristic spots. But a visit to jaisalmer fort changed that and for good. I absolutely loved the architecture, views, history and our guide’s enthusiasm in doing his part. The guide was well informed about the fort and patiently told us all there was to tell.

I especially loved how things changed from room to room. The views and artefacts were just stunning. The government can do better job in preserving it though. The things were mostly dusty but i personally loved how everything looked time worn. Btw it is also the only fort that also has living quarters inside. People actually live inside the fort!!!

Do visit the terrace for a stunning view of the golden city and hire a guide. They do a good job and you would be helping local economy!

Beautiful experience of the old fortress. The JHAKROKHAS and the JAIN TEMPLES here are top-notch examples of stone carvings.

An incredible place to stay. I never felt more welcome and at home here. Narish is an incredible man and goes way above and beyond to make you feel like family. The best place I stayed in my month in India!

Can visit if you like history / ancient architecture, but except architecture, not much to see. I was sad to see the poor maintenance of historical articles (as you can found in Jaipur / Jodhpur) Though this is the only non barren fort, but it's misfortune of this fort as well. Very Crowded. Polluted, Stinking and with danger of stray animals.

As always, a guide can get your the essence of your visit by taking you through it's narrow streets / passages.
