Photographer's Note

Deep in the heart of the Thar Desert is Jaisalmer - also called as the Golden City, one of the last princely bastions in the region.Founded on what was the cross-roads of lucrative trade routes, this remote settlement came to be celebrated for the valour of its rulers, and for the aesthetic sense represented by their palaces and havelis. The rich merchants engaged stone-craftsmen who did work of great delicacy on the sandstone mansions they built, filling up facades with sculptural filigree, screen windows, delicate pavilions and beautiful balconies.
