Culture of jaisalmer

The rich culture of Jaisalmer is a remnant of a bygone era. The people still hold onto their traditions and culture. Folk music and dance have been passed from generation to generation, and form a significant part of their lives. Kalbeliya, Ghoomar and Kathputli are popular dance forms. Jaisalmer’s crafts include intricate embroidery work, silver jewellery, leather products and stone work. The city is well-known for its historical architecture, especially for Jaisalmer Fort. Other attractions are Parsvanath Jain Temple, Chandraprabhu Temple, Salim Singh Ki Haveli, etc. Astounding lattice work can be seen over the walls, pillars and ceiling of the historical places. The Desert Festival is held every year which gives the people an outlet to express their talent through music concerts, puppet shows, folk dance and turban-tying contests.
