Jaisalmer FortThe desert city of Jaisalmer came to exist when Raja Jaisal, after whom the city is named, found his earlier capital Lodurva too susceptible to foreign invasions. The city was founded in the 12th century. It is no wonder that even today you can be witness to the city's glorious past as you start exploring its forts and palaces. Age-old forts, impressive havelis and alluring sand dunes make up for a richer medieval experience. Don't miss to interact with the locals and undertake a camel safari through the dunes to make your experience one of its kind.

Jaisalmer has a typical desert type of climate with hot summers and bitter-cold winters. Days during summer are scorching hot while nights are cool. Day temperature could shoot up to 50 degrees centigrade; 41 degrees is the average summer temperature. Dust and sand storms can be experienced in the daytime. There's scanty rainfall (barely 15 cm annually). Winter records an average temperature of 23 degrees. For tourists, October to March is ideal time to make a trip here.
