The Jaisalmer Fort in India

By Seif Kamel
   Situated in Rajasthan, precisely in the city of Jaisalmer, the Jaisalmer
Fort is a distinctive historical site several tourists who travel to India are
keen to explore.
   A remarkable fact about Jaisalmer Fort is that it still hosts a large
number of people who live within its fortified walls. Hundreds of years
ago, the whole city of Jaisalmer was located inside this huge fort. The
first group of people who started to reside outside the fort was during the
17 th century.
   The fort is rather large in all its dimensions. It is 460 meters in long and
230 meters of Width. It is also more than 70 meters above the whole
area around it. Although many sections of the fort date back to the 12 th
century, many places were resorted during the middle of the 17 th century.
With four gates, the Jaisalmer is one marvelous site tourists who spend
their vacations in India should never miss.
