This place is really good but feels somewhat sad/sacred when you get to know the story behind the place. Go around the place spend some time and take some photos..

Anyone visiting Jaisalmer must not miss Kuldhara Village which has been abandoned since 1800s. Now ASI has taken care of the village. If you see from the tourist point of view you will just see a demolished and abondoned village. But if you go to History of this village you will be astonished so as I. It was heard that... More

My Mom's Grand Father was also Paliwal. After Reaching there it was a emotional feeling of visiting village of my ancestors. Its very hard to believe that so many persons just vacated this in just one Night.

A nice village enroute to the dunes from Jaisalmer. Spend an hour exploring the abandoned houses in this village. See the style of construction, the stark dry landscape and reflect a while on what the stories of this village may have been. The local tourism can do a better job of showcasing this place, have some walking tours etc.

I personally feel this is one of the best places to visit in Jaisalmer. The village has an eerie feeling when you enter. The old man at the gate charges a minor entrance fee. The Tourism Dept has done up the village to an extent, the temple is intact, while one odd house has been renovated. The story of the... More
