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

This was another stop in our jeep safari but the place in my opinion did not had much to offer except for the whole story behind the entire abandoned village which was both fascinating and sad, there isn't actually much to see other than some crumbling dwellings. There is no information boards, no guides, just some stone walls in the... More

Ummm. What can you say about an empty village. It looks spooky, because it is abandoned. Visited it during the day, with other people, so it didn't feel haunted. However it has a feel of history.

We were two families travelling together. From Jaisalmer we took a package tour which would show us the real desert and cultural evening followed by rajasthani dinner. It was rs 600 for adults and rs 400 for children between 5-12. This did not include the taxi which we had hired separately. Started at around 3:30 pm and reached Kuldhara village... More

Kuldhara - read about it in books, on the way to Sam Sand Dunes, this was a 5Km detour from main road. Worth a quick stopover ! Entry is 10/- per person and 50/- for car. The place has a story to it how myteriously 84 villages abandoned the villages overnight when a spoilt king demanded to marry daughter of... More
