Built in the 12th century by the Bhati Rajput ruler Rao Jaisal, the Jaisalmer Fort is a massive yellow sandstone fortification that maintains the Raj Mahal and several havelis, gateways and temples. The tawny-brown rampart that turns into honey-gold at sunset, justifying the name “Sonar Quila”, is undoubtedly a blazing instance of visual perception. The architectural design of the fort having intricately carved windows, doors and walls is one of the fine examples of the rich heritage in India. Located on the Trikuta Hill and overlooking the Jaisalmer city, the Jaisalmer Fort is thus one of the popular tourist attractions in Jaisalmer. Moreover, the two canon points, located at vantage points within the fort, give you an amazing panoramic view of Jaisalmer city. Today… in the midst of the royal yellow sandstone architecture, Jaisalmer Fort boasted as one of the fortified cities in Rajasthan housing numerous eateries, including Italian, French, and native cuisines; hotels; and museums.
Patwon Ki Haveli
Jaisalmer was once a trading center, visited by merchants from different parts of the world. Due to the extensive trading and commercial activities, many people became affluent in the city within a short span of time. Built during the 19th century, Pawon Ki Haveli is one of the architectural marvels of Jaisalmer. The exteriors and interiors of this haveli are expositions of fine craftsmanship. Walls of the haveli are decorated with intricate carvings and murals and are painted in golden colour. There is a museum within the haveli that showcases the views of rare artefacts and essays the lifestyle of a bygone era. Being a place of heritage, the haveli is home to a sea of visitors from across the world.
Also known as the mansion of merchants dealing in brocade items, the haveli is known to be the residences of merchants who sold gold and silver items. Some of them manufactured and sold gold and silver threads used in embroidery of ornamental dresses. Being the largest haveli in the city, the building is currently managed by the government of Rajasthan. Various offices are located in the Patwon Ki Haveli. One well-known establishment here is the Archaeological Survey of India. Inside the haveli there is a large collection of paintings; the artistic splendour inside the haveli will surely leave you spellbound!
Once an important city along a major trading route to the modern-day tourist center in a distant remote corner, Jaisalmer has many stories for a traveler. The fortune and fate of this city had many twists and turns. For many centuries, it acted as the India’s gateway to Persia and farther West, because of its location on a popular trade route joining South East Asia to the Western Countries.
The Border Pillar No. 609 is situated in the No Men’s Land near the Line of Control on the Indo-Pak Border. At BP 609, you can see the check post, the fencing of wires on the Indian side and watch tower of BSF. Only Indians are allowed to go up to BP 609, that too after a proper permission from the BSF authorities. Its very difficult to get the permission, and possible only, if you are going by your own vehicle.
