Rajasthan, the princely state, is a rainbow of colours: red, blue, pink, and green. On the other side, The Incredible Jaisalmer, a charming ancient Rajasthani town, is known as the city of yellow or the “Golden City of India”. This yellow splendour contains ochre sand, and every structure ever created is made of yellow sandstone, and the air has a golden hue as the sun shines over the city. This city’s splendour resides in its austere fortifications, walled homes, and arid sun-kissed plains!
The Rajput blood infuses this country with great majesty, since it is named after Maharawal Jaisal! A journey to Jaisalmer would not be complete without a visit to the Thar sand dunes and a swim in the Gadisar lake. The peaceful sounds of the flowing waters of Gadisar Lake make it a beautiful place to come in the evenings.
Here are several monuments that represent India’s yellow city!
Sonar Quila, built by Rawal Jaisal, has an 800-year history. The lofty yellow sandstone walls swell like honey when the sun shines, earning it the nickname “Golden Fort.” The fort is a structure within a structure that contains residences, palaces, and temples. The fort is so large that it houses one-fourth of the city’s oldest residents. Interacting with them will provide you with valuable insights into their culture and way of life. As a result, this UNESCO World Heritage site is appropriately known as “The Jewel of Rajasthan”.
Akhai Vilas, the Rang Mahal, Sarvottam Vilas, Gaj Mahal, and the Moti Mahal are all forts inside the fort. Murals, beautiful interior decorations, and colourful glass paintings are among them at the Rang Mahal.
According to legend, a monk from the Jain temple urged the Patwa brothers to start a company outside of Jaisalmer in order to prosper. They heeded his advice, accumulated fortune, and eventually returned home. Each of the five brothers was granted a Haweli in Jaisalmer, but they couldn’t afford to keep it up to date, so they left it in the hands of the people and fled the city. As a result, the Patwa Haweli has become a tourist destination. The Kothari’s Patwaon ki Haweli is an 18th-century palace that is now a museum with elaborate paintings, furnishings, and artwork on show. if you visit Patwa Haweli then book a car rental with the best packages for a day trip.
Bada Bagh, or the Big Garden as it is known in English, features yellow stoned Rajput cenotaphs. Women who visit the Bhaironji Temple at Bada Bagh with silver girdles are said to be cured of infertility.
The Laxminath temple is a shrine to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi that is placed on a hill. This well-known shrine is said to be extremely strong. The simplicity of the construction, the silver framework, the paintings, and the idols of deities are all that draws our attention among the sandstone’s beauty.
The huge Indian desert, which encompasses 2,00,000 square kilometres, is the world’s 17th biggest desert. The sand symbolises why Jaisalmer is renowned as India’s Yellow City.
