Had an great day in the fortress. The history and architecture is amazing. Wonderful experience wandering around the rooms, buildings and streets. A step into history that is still living.

“Excellent living fort!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is a great living fort with more than 4000 people still living within the walls. Great place to roam around with numerous twisting alleyways. Unfortunately, they do still allow auto-rickshaws and scooters in here. Without those, this place would be perfect.

“Incredible”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Jaisalmer and the Jaisalmer Fortress is an incredible place to spend some days, especially with accommodation inside the fort. It really feels like a desert city. The fortress is still beautiful, and there are cheap guesthouses to stay in.

“meh”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Not the best thing to do in Jaisalmer, to be honest. It's incredibly touristy. It's beautiful but it's a huge tourist hustle and we felt pressured the whole time we were in there. Worth seeing - but don't make a day out of it.
