Jaisalmer, also known as desert city and golden city. Jaisalmer was founded by Bhatti Rajput ruler Maharawal Jaisal in the year 1956 after shifted. The Maharawal choose Trikut hill as the new site for his fort. He thought that his previous abode at Ludharva was vulnerable towards possible enemy assault.
The fort’s massive yellow sandstone walls are a tawny lion colour during the day, fading to honey-gold as the sun sets, thereby camouflaging the fort in the yellow desert. For this reason, it is also known as the Sonar Quila or Golden Fort. The fort is located along the southern edge of the city that bears its name, and is perhaps one of the more striking monuments in the area, its dominant hilltop location making the sprawling towers of its fortifications visible for many miles
