History in Jaisalmer

Edit This
Jaisalmer with its famous Trikoot Garh was founded by Rawal Jaisal in 1156 AD (VS 1212). The Trikoot Garh due to yellow/golden hue has become popular as Sonar Kila among tourists. The film Sonar Kila shot by Satyajeet Ray around 1974 has a lot to do with this name. The place not only came into being when non of the other capital cities of Rajasthan except Chittor garh, were in existence. It was during Mahabharata days that lord Shri Krshna came to this area for some reason and indicated to his disciple Arjun that his (lord) descendant shall build a fort at the location where it stands today. Beside the glorious past which any well meaning person will be proud of, the place is charming as hussal and bustle of modernity has not yet caught up. Brigadier Jagmal singh rathore
