While the sunset at dunes is beautiful, the sunrise is equally stunning. Most people miss out on it in their itinerary. The fort is run down and small, overlooking the country side and Kuldhara abandoned village. We left from Damodar desert camp, where we were staying at 5.00am to watch the sunrise. And we were not disappointed. We have watched... More

The Fort is run-down and small, but the views of the countryside and the ostentation of peacocks (we saw about 40 when we were there) was truly phenomenal.

The abandoned village across the road from this fort gives an interesting experience. This place also has a small ancient temple that gives some photo ops. Other than this, there are peacocks loitering about the fort walls. Worth a visit if you are on the way to the dunes.

Visit only if interested to see a fort in ruins and peacocks in their natural habitat. This is about 15 odd kms from the kuldhara village which is also now a site promoted for its ruins. There is a good view of the desert (the beginning of it) and the adjoining village which was emptied by its residents overnight owing... More

Once again a place wherein you won't find anything to enjoy and cheer!!!! We went over there and was not at all surprised when we noticed that we were the only group visiting the place at that point of time!!!
