Jaisalmer is known as Golden city because of the yellowish sandstone available here and the whole town wears a golden yellowish tinge. The houses, temples, walls, forts,  pathways or name any construction, it  is built of yellow sandstone. The town lies in the middle  of Thar desert and  faces extreme temperature variations.

The town has beautiful forts and Jain temples which throws light into the life of the people here. Will take you to more places through my posts.

Enjoy a few pictures, and check for yourself why it is called a golden city.
