Your Jaisalmer visit is not worth without visiting the fort. It takes around 2-2.5 hrs to see the whole fort. But you would come to know everything about the city, Maharajas and how they ruled over a city for long. A approved guide is must.

Every fort has a history attached to it and so has this. To be sure that you are told the history, take a guide. Negotiate for the price. The guides quote anything and everything. There's a whole small city that resides in the fort area...More

I felt almost all the forts are worth visiting. The only reason we find difficult is, there are several forts in the distance of 10 to 20 KMs. in south India, we find at least 100 km between each fort. In Jaisalmer, we find 5...More

Just like other Rajasthan tourist attractions, this place called the Jaisalmer fort is one of the mesmerising monuments in the Rajasthani heritage. The hot temperature in the city escapes while you are roaming in between the walls of the fort.

Jaisalmer fort is interesting but not too much to view . You can finish the tour within 10-15 min. I travelled with family . Don't book you dinner in your hotel as their is dinner gala near desert Safari .

Its a very good month to visit. Not only will you be rewarded with Holi, but the tourist season is beginning to wind down so not too crowded. It is beginning to warm up though
Request you all to review my itenarary. 1. Reach Jaisalmer at 0600 by train. 2. Get fresh, have breakfast and leave the guest house by 0800. 3. Visit the Jain temple 4. Visit the Sonar Killa (Fort) at 0900. Go for audio tour. visit the palaces inside the fort( can you please name the palaces inside the fort?) End the visit till 1300. ....4 hours sufficient???? 5. Have lunch and Leave for Desert Safari at 1400 6. Night in the desert 7. Next day arrive back in the morning at 1100. Get ready, have lunch and out for rest of the sightseeing by1300 8. Take auto and go to the war museum and back by 1530. (2.5 hrs sufficient for the to and fro journey and the museum visit?????) 9. visit patwon ki haveli and salim singh haveli by 1730. 10. Go to Gadisar lake at sunset time (i think this is not a sunset point, but read the reviews that this is good place to visit in the evenings) 11. Go to desert cultural museum and attend the puppet show at 1900. 12. Walk in the markets and End the day with dinner at 2200. 13. Take the train for Bikaner at 2300. a. Is it worth going to the Desert national park if i am already spending 1 night in desert safari? b. Read from reviews here that salim singh haveli and nathmalji ki haveli are average places and can be skipped. Is it correct? c. Can Bada baug be accommodated anywhere in the itinerary or it is worth a skip? Since, i dont have family and ladies along with me in this trip, i believe i wont waste time in the movement, local transport, eating joints and getting ready. Please advice

You can spend max 2 days over there. Fort is a must and Jain temple too great is nice. Once you finish that if u have time for the day go for The Havelis and then proceed to Sam for stay in the tents. Donot miss the sunset... More
