    Jaisalmer Fort is one of the largest forts in the world. It is situated in Jaisalmer city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It was built in 1156 AD by the Bhati Rajput ruler Rao Jaisal, from where it derives it name. The fort stands proudly amidst the golden stretches of the great Thar Desert.

    Jaisalmer Fort Built in the 12th century, the Jaisalmer Fort is one of the few living monuments in the world and home to a fourth of the city’s population. Built in yellow sandstone, this wondrous monument looks like a ship in a sea of golden sands from afar, giving it the name of Ship Fort as well.

    The rising and setting sun is said to adorn the mighty walls and paved ways of this fort in another colour and trust me on this one, seeing is believing.
