Jaipur and Jaisalmer – Fort-astic

The view from atop Jaisalmer Fort

Rajasthan is of course picturesque for many reasons, and two of the main ones are its incredible forts and palaces — Amber Fort in Jaipur is enormous and Jaipur’s City Palace is fantastic, while Jaisalmer Fort is incredible, if only for the fact that people still live in it.

The two cities are otherwise very different. Whereas Jaipur is the bustling capital of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer is a small desert town close to the border with Pakistan. I loved them both for very different reasons, and wish I could have spent more time in each.

As usual, let me know what you think in the comments!
