Golden Triangle Tour – Jaisalmer
The fort of Jaisalmer is a breathtaking sight, located a few hundred miles west of Jaipur, it is nicknamed the “Golden City” due to it’s beautiful architecture all carved from the same magnificent golden-honey sandstone – and is the perfect place for any arts and crafts lover on their Golden Triangle Tour. Inside you will find shops teeming in bright embroideries, a royal palace and numerous businesses ready and waiting to barter you a good price for their handmade crafts. Behind the magnificent walls, particularly to the north, the narrow streets of the old city conceal magnificent havelis (Indian mansions) also carved from the golden-honey sandstone.
A city that has been revived to its former glory in the past half-century, Jaisalmer may be remote but it is in no way a forgotten city– it is actually one of Rajasthan’s biggest tourist destinations. Jaisalmer is a much more laid-back, hassle-free place to stay than many other destinations on your Golden Triangle tour.
