Jaisalmer, a city in the state of Rajasthan, is known as the “Golden City of India” due to the architecture being formed by yellow sandstone and is known for its palaces and forts. The city has transformed itself into one of India’s key tourist destinations and claims an important position among the tourist attractions spread all over the desert land of Rajasthan. The city’s most prominent landmark is the Jaisalmer Fort, also called Sonar Qila (Golden Fort). In recent years Jaisalmer has become home to various wind and solar energy projects, taking advantage of the ample sunlight and wind resources in the desert.
