A World Heritage Site, the desert city of Jaisalmer has a number of historical attractions, buildings, and legends worthy of protection. Growing up from its roots as a stop-off point for traders passing through the desert, Jaisalmer became a state in the 12th century CE and developed into a regional hub of commerce and culture. The main fort's large sandstone walls encircle a number of historic temples and royal buildings, with tours of the old district central to Jaisalmer itineraries. A holiday in Jaisalmer also offers the chance to take a day trip and explore the city's desert surroundings by camel. Add Jaisalmer and other destinations in India to your travel plans using our India day trip planning website.
