Jaisalmer: The Golden City

Today I toured the world heritage site of Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer was named after Maharawal Jaisal Singh in 1156 AD. The town’s fort is still standing and is home to some 4,000 people. It lies in the heart of the Thar Desert (2nd largest desert) and has a population of about 80,000 people. Jaisalmer is known as the “Golden City of India” because the yellow sand and the yellow sandstone used in every architecture of the city gives a yellowish-golden tinge to the city and its surrounding area.
