Jaisalmer, which is often referred to as the Golden City, is perched above a ridge of yellowish sandstone. The historic Jaisalmer Fort crowns the golden town, which is surrounded by lengths of golden dunes on all sides. In addition to the golden Havelis, the area is home to one of India’s oldest and only forts that still houses locals inside its walls. The Sonar Quila’s imposing sandstone walls give it a tawny lion colour during the day and a stunning honey-gold colour during the evening. Read about book ticketon.
For a budget stay, any solo traveller can look for a hostel in Jaisalmer.
