Rawal Jaisal was descendent of the Yadu vansi Clan and a Bhati Rajput. Bhati Rajputs were chandra vansi Rajputs. Rawal Jaisal founded the city of Jaisalmer in 1156 AD. The new fort he built was on hill called Trikuta.
Bhati Rajputs were great camel riders and warriors. Their reign spread
as far as punjab, pakistan and Afganistan. Their are certain monuments
in Lahore such as Bhati gate which states their rule on Lahore which
they conquered from Mahmood Ghazanavi.
The state of Jaisalmer was positioned right in the way of the route
from Afganistan- Pakistan - Delhi. Taking advantage of this strategic
position they levied taxes on the passing carvan. Bhati Rajputs were
said to be great shooters with gun.
