“Fort visit”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

We had seen enough forts in the past so it was average. The temple inside the fort has impressive sculpture work.

“Brilliant!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Only living fort in India... cast in mesmerising golden sandstone. Great experience walking through the many lanes, by-lanes and temples.

“One can easily spend an entire morning wandering around this ancient fort”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Plenty of interesting things to see just wandering around inside the fort and soaking up the atmosphere. Yes it can be dirty with animals and people crowding the narrow alleys, but there are also moments of tranquility to be found. It's also worth walking around the perimeter of the fort for excellent view: late afternoon is a good time for this.

“Not Just a 'Living fort', A lively fort too.”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

But for the cleanliness issue, the fort is really fantastic. Life goes on in a very leisurely pace in Jaisalmer. And life within the fort seems even leisurely. Walk around the palace, in the lanes and by-lanes and friendly elderly people would guide you to some view point or a small temple.
Temples souvenir shops cafes and houses all mingle in a mystic way making this place unique.
A day inside this fortress will bring fond memoirs for a very long time.
