Welcome to Rawal Kot Jaisalmer
Appearing to rise out of the rocky incline on which it is perched, Hotel Rawal Kot, Jaisalmer, draws its charm from Rajasthan’s traditional, and trademark, the haveli (mansion). We, at Hotel Rawal Kot, are committed to serving you an authentic Rajasthani experience, infused with contemporary efficiency. So while the architecture exudes old world charm, guests find the rooms smart, with tastefully appointed interiors and amongst the best amenities in the city of Jaisalmer. A near perfect blend of the old and the new.
Rooms at Hotel Rawal Kot are well equipped, with all modern comforts and requirements. A close of knit team of highly efficient and intuitive staff is at your service round the clock. Drawing from the concept of a traditional Rajasthani haveli Hotel Rawal Kot has numerous terraces providing a spell binding vista. A soothing dip in the tastefully located swimming pool allows guests to watch the Jaisalmer Fort change colours from sunrise to sunset. On offer in the restaurant are international and Rajasthani favourites, and yet another breathtaking view of the Jaisalmer fort.
To enhance the guest experience, Hotel Rawal Kot organises Jeep and Camel Safaris to the picturesque sand dunes at Khuri and Sam villages. To give guests a close up experience of Rajasthani arts, culture and heritage, Hotel Rawal Kot also arranges folk dances and music by the poolside. In case guests request the hotel could also make arrangements for a tented camp tucked into the shadow of the sand dunes a little distance away from Jaisalmer. That is an unmatched experience.
Jaisalmer is a former medieval trading centre and princely state in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, set in the heart of The Thar, or Great Indian Desert. India is of course a land of diverse cultures and people, while Rajasthan is its most colourful state. And in Rajasthan, Jaisalmer stands out as one of its major tourist attractions and a cultural hub in South Asia. Jaisalmer is named after Maharawal Jaisal Singh, a Bhati Rajput king who founded the city in 1156 AD. Jaisalmer means “the Hill Fort of Jaisal”. Legend goes that he founded the city on the advice of a local Saint named Eesaal. Rawal Jaisal chose Trikuta hill as the new site for his fort as his earlier capital at Luderwa (16 k.m from present Jaisalmer) was too vulnerable to attack.
THE JAISALMER (Golden City)
Jaisalmer is also known as the “Golden City,” owing to the distinct yellow hue of the sandstone that adorns its architecture. The town stands on a ridge of yellow sandstone, and dominating the skyline is Jaisalmer Fort, a sprawling hilltop citadel buttressed by 99 bastions. Behind its massive walls stand the ornate Maharaja’s Palace and intricately carved Jain temples. Jaisalmer town has a population of about 78,000. Jaisalmer is close to the India – Pakistan border and the district that takes its name from the town is the largest in Rajasthan, and one of the largest in the country. The length of the International border with Pakistan adjoining Jaisalmer district is 471 km (293 mi).
