A city that looks golden, feels golden and lives golden! Jaisalmer is the shimmering golden hue in the palette of colours that is Rajasthan. Located in the heart of Thar Desert, this remarkable city is the prime example of how culture and royalty have seeped into the vast corners of this state. A Jaisalmer tour package gives you all the nuances of a rich princely region along with the arid landscape of the golden, never ending desert. Prominent features of this sun-kissed land are the magnificently adorned havelis, monumental forts, the rich culture, ancient traditions and the desert camels that define the very soul of our Jaisalmer holiday packages. Bathed in yellow sandstone from the forts to houses, from buildings to palaces, one gets to experience the golden yellow hues of this land in any of our Jaisalmer travel packages. Rajasthani folk music and dance play a pivotal role in the shaping of this desert region and are essential highlights of any Jaisalmer tour package. 

Jaisalmer found its roots in the 12th century when it was established by the Yadav king, Maharawal Jaisal Singh. The city was thus named ‘Jaisalmer’ after the erstwhile ruler who first created and maintained this desert city in the midst of the Thar Desert. Even today, it is fondly known as the golden city of India owing to the extensive use of yellow sandstone in the construction of many of its houses, forts and buildings. The golden or yellow shade also refers to the never ending desert in which the city is situated and flourishes. Inspite of being in the midst of a dry arid region, the city has managed to attract hordes of tourists every year. A Jaisalmer tour package offers all the delights and attractions that define the rich culture and history of this Rajput state.

The Geography & Seasons

Jaisalmer is situated in the heart of the Thar Desert. Owing to its location in the middle of a desert, the temperatures tend to be on the higher side and vary greatly during the day. The summer months between March to June experience warm hot days and pleasant nights while the winter season between October to February is the time when the weather becomes pleasantly warm during the days and extremely cool during nights. Winters are said to be the best season to experience the marvels of this land and to try out the highlights of our Jaisalmer travel packages available online. Being an arid and dry region the city experiences scarce rainfall and is supplemented with water supply by several lakes, streams and rivers. The Gadisar Lake is the most popular lake of this city and a boat ride in this lake during the evening forms an essential part of any Jaisalmer tour package. Being the largest district of the Rajasthan state, the boundaries of Jaisalmer form the borders of the mainland India on the west and south-west side.

The Highlights

The golden city of India is an amalgamation of must-do sightseeing with unique travel experiences! Be amazed and astounded by the many architectural wonders and delights that the city has to offer. A Jaisalmer tour package forms a part of our Rajasthan Marwad experience. The brilliant journey is often accompanied by the sights and sounds of cities such as Jodhpur, Bikaner, Mandawa and sometimes the capital of the state – the pink city of Jaipur! The tour highlights include the wonderful Gadisar Lake, where we enjoy a relaxed evening while experiencing a serene and calm boat ride on its waters. This calming ride is followed by a traditional puppet show – Kathputhli that entertains and enthrals one and all. Jaisalmer travel packages wouldn’t be the same if not for the iconic Jaisalmer Fort or Sonar Qila (Golden Fort) as it is locally called. The massive fort is a popular landmark of the city with a huge complex, gigantic ramparts and settlements, shops being established inside the premises of the fort. We then visit the beautiful Jain Mandir followed by the magnificent Patwon ki Haveli – a five story elegantly carved unique piece of architectural marvel. Next on the agenda of our Jaisalmer holiday packages is the Nathmalji ki Haveli – an extraordinary piece of art and a fine example of artistic symmetry. Also a part of our experience is the Jaisalmer Museum that gives an insight into the history and culture of this city. After this, get ready to experience the sun, sand and dunes at the Sam Sand Dunes of Jaisalmer. Here, we get a real taste of Rajasthan as we enjoy a joyful camel ride, a traditional puppet show, a beautiful folk dance and witness a breath-taking sunset over the dunes that etch an everlasting memory in our hearts and mind. This spectacular experience is followed by a delicious Rajasthani meal and a unique chance to be one with the desert by staying in tents amidst the sand dunes of Jaisalmer. The amazing journey of Jaisalmer is completed with a visit to the Jaisalmer War Museum that pays tribute to the bravery and courage of the Indian army bravehearts. Truly an eye-opening and enriching experience!
