Today a remote outpost in the Thar Desert, Jaisalmer was founded in the 12th century by Maharawal Jaisal of Bhatti Rajput clan. The town stands on a ridge of yellowish sandstone, crowned by a fort which contains the palace and several ornate Jain temples. Many of the houses and temples are finely sculptured. It is by far the oldest Rajput capital, dating from 1156 A. D. 'Jaisalmer' means 'the Hill Fort of Jaisal' and 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.
