In medieval times, Jaisalmer continued to be on the focus of the masses because of its location. It falls in the way of one of the two routes, which connected India from Persia, Egypt,
Africa and the west. The Bhatti Rajput rulers were still in line. They were the sole guardian of the city and thus mustered enough wealth through taxes levied on the passing caravans, of which there was no scarcity. Jaisalmer is another Rajputana town where Rajput womenfolk of the city committed Jauhar
(self Immolation to avoid disgrace). The sand dunes are magical here.
