Jaisalmer is a gilded fantasy juxtaposed in a formidable desert. To say the least, it is a shimmer of sand amidst the sun soaked sky.

Jaisalmer Fort is the stellar attraction standing on a hill to the south overlooking the town. The base of the fort is circled by a wall of solid stone blocks over which the Trikuta hill projects, and supports the ramparts forming a double line of defence. The bastions are in the form of half tours surrounded by high turrets and joined by thick walls. Within the fort are the carved palaces, havelies and balconies.

Every year Jaisalmer comes alive with the Desert Festival, which is held in the month of February. The festival is held on the enchanting background of the majestic Jaisalmer fort. The festival itself is a riot of colors with the desert folks dancing and singing evocatively of the triumphs and tragedies of the land. From scary snake charmers to traditional gymnasts and amusing puppet shows to enchanting folk music recitals, it is all there at the Jaisalmer desert festival. This mega event is conducted in association with Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation.

With just a couple of days remaining for the festivities to take off, one can see hordes of garishly colored camel cavalcades proceeding towards the brilliant desert city of Jaisalmer.

As the D-days dawns, the whole of Jaisalmer reverberates with enchanting Rajasthani folk music. It's not just the fort area where the main event is held, but if one were to take a walk along the narrow alleyways of this enchanting city, one will come across musicians performing their art even inside abandoned havelies. Such is the passion and excitement. In fact the beating of the drums can be heard from all corners of Jaisalmer.

A bewildering array of folk music recitals are performed at the festival premises and the show continues till late into the night. The Desert Festival is a very prestigious event especially for musicians. While the renowned musicians come up with newer and more amazing performances, for the new faces, the festival is a god given opportunity to display their talent in front of a distinguished gathering.

Apart from music which of course is the piece de resistance of the festival, a plethora of fascinating contests are also held in the sidelines. For instance turban tying, moustache making as well as the popular camel races all add to the fun quotient of the festival. As far as the camel races are concerned, it's a matter of pride and honor and needless to say, there is intense competition among the participants.
