its heritage, culture, safaris, sand dunes, lush forests and wildlife-makes it destination nonpareil. The dramatic desert fortress of Jaisalmer is an exotic city in Rajasthan?s great Thar Desert. ?The Golden City? rose to prominence as a result of its position on camel trade routes. It\'s now most famous for the 12th-century fort and ornate ?havelis,? as the merchant-built fine houses and pavilions in the city?s medieval lanes are known. The surrounding Desert National Park offers opportunities to observe blackbucks, desert foxes and chinkaras amid the rolling dunes, rugged crags and waterholes.
