Jaisalmer Travel guide
Jaisalmer : Michelin's recommendations
Located in the heart of the Thar desert, the ochre-coloured buildings of this city founded in 1156 by Rao Jaisal appear like a mirage to visitors, some of whom arrive here in exotic and somewhat uncomfortable fashion on the back of a camel! A visit of the fort, a citadel within a citadel, is a must; here visitors can relive the history of Jaisalmer, a city attacked on numerous occasions. Nowadays, the only fight its bastions face is against water seepage and the risk of collapse. Wander through the narrow streets of the lower town to discover its sumptuous havelis; above all, make sure you visit the impressive Jain temples, with their magnificent filigree marble work.
