Famous City of Jaisalmer Rajasthan

Jaisalmer's Desert landscapes and heritage sights like the imposing citadel of Jaisalmer, its ravishing havelis, captivating temples, charming palaces and the vibrant bazaars. These sandstone structures seem to echo the chivalry, romance and sacrifices of the Bhatti Rajputs that inhabited this desert land.

History of Jaisalmer:
About Jaisalmer was founded by Maharaja Jaisal, a Bhatti Rajput king, in 1156, on the advice of a sage. Since then it saw many empires fight for its acquisition due to its secure location as well as importance for being on a trade route to Persia, Egypt and Africa. The City has amassed ample wealth by taxing goods passing from the route. This led to many lootings in the 13th and 14th century, especially when Turk-Afghan ruler Ala-ud-Din Khilji took siege of the fort for nine years. Before accepting the defeat, the Rajput women performed Jauhar and committed mass suicide.

Later Shah Jahan bestowed the City's patronage to Sabala Simha after witnessing his strength and ability in the Battle of Peshawar. Jaisalmer lost its importance as a trade centre after losing many of the trade routes to Pakistan and the coming up of Mumbai port.
