Jaisalmer Fort

 Jaisalmer is sometimes called the “Golden City of India” because the yellow sand and the yellow sandstone used in every architecture of the city gives a yellowish-golden tinge to the city and its surrounding area. Satyajit Ray shot a scene of a Bengali film here in this Fort and movie was named as “Sonar Kella” (means Golden Fort). Because of this, Jaisalmer has become a tourist attraction.1-DSC05169
