If you visiting Jaiselmer, one thing you should not miss is Kuldhara. The drive is solitary drive when it take a cut between Jaiselmer and SAM sand dunes. I have visited this place twice and would not miss third time. There are some stories associated about this place being haunted... but all that is crap. Once you go and there... More

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

Nothing great about this abandoned village. just old houses, under constructed ones... and a temple ... only interesting part is the story ... which you can hear from anyone in the town itself. Avoid it, if you have something better to do ... or spend a quick 10 min there en route Sam

It is one of those places you visit and then tell others not to. Nothing great about the abandoned village, apart from the story. One can skip it if the schedule is tight. A long, silent road leads to a gate where an old man will charge entry.. once you enter the gates you see broken homes, utensils, a temple... More

We reached there in an auto-rickshaw. The road to village itself is eerie and silent even at afternoons. Just like the place. There are numerous stories about the village how it got abandoned in a single night, that adds more fuel when you reach there. You see broken homes, with earthen pots lying there. Some, lying under dunes of sand.... More

Go there at sunset and as it gets dark, make sure you take a long walk to experience the so called haunted feeling
