The Golden Fort, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India.
It is probably the only fort of world, inside which a large section of the city's population still reside.

Wow that's a big fort! There are still many old city walls still standing in Europe and lots of people still living inside them, e.g. York, but I'm not sure if any of them are as big as the one in your photo.
City walls are different things I guess. They probably demarcate the area/limits of a city (at least in Indian context). This fort was actually the whole city of Jaisalmer till around 70-80 years back. The royal family used to live, which still lives, within the fort, and all the population too was living inside it. There are four gates, which were closed by night to restrict entry. It still has those old markets, spaces for recreation, street plays, etc.
Generally, elsewhere the forts have been occupied by royal families and other people linked with the king like ministers, army persons, high profile merchants, and the remaining population used to live outside the fort in an area surrounding the fort (eg. Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur). But that was not a case with this Golden Fort of Jaisalmer as all of the king's subjects were living within the fort itself.
My father recalls that when he was a child, around 45-50 years back, then there were hardly 5-10 houses outside these walls.
My grandfather used to tell that the fort was surrounded by sand dunes as high as 500m and whenever there was a sandstorm, the sand would get collected beside the walls and the gates. Any passers-by of some other village/ not living inside the fort, were captivated by the king's soldiers and were made to remove the sand manually using shovels in return of one Indian bread. Even my grandfather too did this a couple of times.
And indeed, it's massive.
