nchanting shade of gold against speckled, grainy desert, Jaisalmer with its ‘Patwon ki Haveli’ echoes glory of the era of Maharajas and Maharanis. .
.
.
Rajputana - the royal lineage of India who were sworn as protectors, nourishers and givers adorned this land. They were the power and the upholder. .
.
But what is greater than time. With the advent of Democracy, not just the titles but also the pedestals were asked to be surrendered. The high and mighty were restored to the ordinary. .
.
But what is left of the era is the architecture, the art, the skill and the craftsmanship. That era boasted of precision and kaarigari. .
.
Today man made machines and gadgets might take over the human effort but the beauty of ‘it’ being handcrafted can never be replaced. .

The fort is a massive construction and interesting to visit. The audio tour was quite good and is important for tourists to do if you want to understand the history and gain a depth of knowledge about the fort and the occupants.
We had a great guide for the day who took us around the local area as well as to the biggest Haveli in Jaisalmer. Absolutely stunning!
