In 1156, Rawal Jaisal Singh, a member of the Bati family, established Jaisalmer and made Jaisalmer Fort the capital. In 1293, after the Bhatti clan confiscated a caravan full of wealth, Jaisalmer witnessed Alauddin Khilji's first siege. Rawal Sahal Singh changed the fate of Jaisalmer after treating Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as superior. Later, with the support of Shah Jahan, a noble named Sabala Sinha ruled Jaisalmer. It was then that the power of the Prince of Jaisalmer reached its peak, but in 1762, when Rawal Muraj took the throne, the wealth of the country was depleted and the province was lost. Jaisalmer continued to be ruled by the prince of the Bhatti clan until 1818 when Mulraj formed a political alliance with the British to save the dying country. Today, even today, Batty’s descendants are still involved in many developments in the area and surrounding areas.
