Twelfth century Jaisalmer Fort, the only living fort in the world and a Unesco world heritage site monument is in a dilapidated state. The fort is losing its glory mainly due to the leakage of water and might also lose UNESCO World Heritage tag.
Around 3,000 inhabitants, who live inside 853 year old fort, fear that the seepage of sewerage water might turn out to be a disaster resulting in damage to lives and properties. The sewerage line which is affecting maximum houses in the fort due to which the walls of the fort are becoming hollow has become a worry for its residents. Subhash Paliwal, a 53 year old resident said, “We are facing the seepage problem from last so many issues. The drainage system is not proper here. New sewerage line was laid but water is leakage is still taking place. ”
