Ever wondered what it is like to live in a fort? When one of its walls was built over 800 years ago, it surely must be extraordinary, right? See what life must have been like back then, when Maharajas ruled Rajasthan and bear witness to the present, when their descendants live in the modern era. Yes, we’re urging you to Visit the Only Living Fort in India - The Jaisalmer Fort. Built by Raja Rawal Jaisal in 1105 and now occupied by over 5,000 people who are direct descendants of the Brahmin administrators and Kshatriya warriors who served the king, it is called a ‘living fort’ because it is still used as a residence. Adding a visit to Jaisalmer Fort in your list of things to do in Jaisalmer when you stay at a Club Mahindra resort in Rajasthan certainly won’t disappoint. In fact, you may want to move there for good!

Silence usually pervades ancient forts and palaces. But not this one. When you visit the Only Living Fort in India, throbbing life is what you get, in all its glory. Walk past street-side musicians and dancers as you smell the heady aromas of freshly brewed chai and hot samosas. Vendors selling camel leather bags and shoes vie for your attention, as kids play in the street. Jostle for space with tourists from all around the world as you climb centuries-old stairs lined with artisans and vendors selling pottery, trinkets and jewellery. Leheriya sarees drying on clotheslines and the sound of a cooker letting off some steam remind you that you are in someone’s home and the exquisite Rani Ka Mahal with its ornate jharokhas and jaalis remind you that you are in an 800-year-old fortress. Sensory overload is an often-over-used term, but when you Visit the Only Living Fort in India it will help you understand it better.
