The largest district of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer was founded by Maharawal Jaisal Singh in 1156 AD. This city is characterised by rustic houses, bustling markets, Jain temples, museums, lakes, and havelis. However, the imposing, tawny-coloured Jaisalmer Fort is the main feature of the town and has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site under the group Hill Forts of Rajasthan. This striking fortification houses numerous havelis, eateries, handicraft shops, and temples like the impressive Chandraprabhu Jain temple.
