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.
