We visited this abandoned village as part of half day safari organized by Trotters of Jaisalmer. The place except the temple is completely in ruins. The village head man's house at the height is better preserved and some exhibits from the time it was occupied. No shade on the various abandoned mining towns in Western USA. However, the visit makes... More

Worth visiting, but hyped up little , so many travellers go disappointed . When we were there we didn't anyone to talk. Met a guy and he said so many fictitious details going around. Most of them not true.

We stopped here as part of a half day safari trip. Great story about how it came to become abandoned and nice to hear the men folk standing up for their women. All that is left of the village now are the ruined walls of houses. Those that are more substantial and have roofs (two or three) have been restored... More

A lot of stories have been attached to the history of Kuldhara. We were told that a businessman's daughter was forced by a ruler to marry him But as she did not wish to marry him the entire village at the call of the businessman vacated the village the same night. Whatever the truth is,going to Kuldhara is a complete... More

The remains of abandoned village are a site to behold, few of the dwellings have been reconstructed to give a glimpse of the houses of that time. While moving in the village site one feels a kind of anxiety keeping in mind the history behind it. We visited the village in the evening hence the atmosphere was more quieter than... More

It is a relic of an old village that has been deserted for many years. there is a very intriguing history of the incidents that led to its desertion. you can see broken relics of houses and temples. good experience.

Some experiences stay with you for life. It was the first time ever I heard silence. GO there with least no. of people possible to experience its serenity and calmness. Spend some moments on the window pales and roam freely in the ruin houses. The village has a very captivating story that takes back you in time. I was there... More

some 17 Kms ahead of Jaisalmer, lies a totally abandoned Village,a desolate village or a Village which has been cursed, and brings sadness to heart. Some 300 years ago, it used to be a prosperous village of Paliwal Brahmins under the state of Jaisalmer.There are many stories associated with this village, some may be true and some just a Hoax.rows...
