Royal Palace of Jaisalmer (Raj Mahal Palace)

Interesting
Although less impressive than the royal palace at Udaipur, the former residence of the Maharaja of Jaisalmer nonetheless boasts a beautiful façade which is typical of Rajput architecture. This delicate filigree stonework, adorned with numerous corbelled balconies, bears witness to the art of the Muslim sculptors and stonemasons, known as Silavats, who worked in the region. Above all, the palace offers a magnificent view of the golden city, with the Thar desert in the background.
