Photographer's Note

Founded in the 12th century, Jaisalmer Fort, is a massive structure nestled amid the golden sands of Thar Desert. One of the unique features is that there are about a quarter of the population of town live inside this fort within its walls, honeycombed with narrow, winding lanes, lined with houses and temples. That's the reason it's called the Living Fort, and hence it has transformed into a typical Indian town with crowds, traffic and filth lying around. To maintain continuity as the population increases, newer houses can be seen pops up every day haphazardly on top of the fort, irregular, substandard, bad sanitation and sadly decreased livability.

Taken from top most of the fort about 30m above the ground level, showing the 'flintstone village' and here residents were seen busy carrying building materials for obvious reasons.

Perhaps this could be a unique tribute to Yabba-dabba-doo Fred Flintstone ??
