The yellow sand and the yellow sandstone used in every architecture of the city gives a yellowish-golden tinge to the city and its surrounding area”..

Most common building materials:
  • Light yellowish sandstone for walls (0.45m or more in thickness).
  • 50 mm thick panels of limestone used on upper levels for elements on projecting wall facades
Planning of the City
The study focuses on the sandstone havelis (urban courtyard houses) of the desert city of Jaisalmer, While the city has been much admired by contemporary Indian architects, their understanding has been a Modernist one, based largely on the idea of 'spatial organization'. The architecture of these forts is a blend of Islamic, Persian and Indian styles of architecture.

The buildings are analysed at their various levels of organization:
  • Formal and spatial planning
  • Composition of elevations (interior and exterior)
  • Architectural components and details.

Miniature representations of buildings, play an important role as compositional elements. Most of these forts had ingenious water structures designed for harvesting and storage, including step-wells, elaborate reservoirs and channels.
