Jaisalmer fort was built in 1156 and is the second oldest in Rajasthan. Much of the fort and surrounding havelis are built in a kind of lego style - due to it being in the middle of the desert, there wasn't much water around to make cement or concrete. Instead the blocks of stone that make up the fort were made to fit into each other lego style with no binding agent. Also, much of the ornamentation screws on like light bulbs.
