Jaisalmer, lying in the middle of the Great Indian Desert of Thar evokes a vivid picture of sheer magic and brilliance of the desert. Founded by Rawal Jaisal in 1156 A.D., the remote location of Jaisalmer kept it almost unaffected by outside influences, even during the days of the Raj. There are very few cities, which boast of the magnificence and charm that encircles Jaisalmer. The romantic sand dunes here will remind you of the Arabian Night stories, which you must have read in your school days.
