There are lot of stories associated with sudden immigration of residents hundreds of years ago. The ruins look less authentic. It seems to be more of a time ravaged village than a village narrating a story in modern times. You hardly get the impression of life being lead at that time and system. Not worth it. Being promoted by Tourism... More

The story has it that it was a thriving village with hundreds of families living. A nawab saw a beautiful girl in the village and wanted to marry her. He gave an ultimatum for marriage falling which he will kidnap her. One fine morning it was found that the whole village was empty with no one knowing where villagers have... More

It is an old abandoned village which looks as if artificially created to rake in more tourists. Nothing exciting about this place.

Very little to see but several of the houses have been partially restored and you get a feel of what this place must have been like when it was still occupied. Very few visitors get here, but well worth an hour or so if you are anywhere near.

Visited the hunted village at 1:30am, hoping to see a ghost, nothing of that sort happened but sky and its full moon were spectacular

Seriously, in my own views, it was just a wastage of time to visit this place but the story attached to this place is good enough to have a look at this place. This old village was abandoned by its people hundreds of years back and only remains of some structures of the village are left.

This place is nothing but a tourist trap, you will only get charlatans who will tell you some made up story for money. If you are with a tour guide, insist on directly taking you to the desert instead of wasting time at this place.

Early morning or late afternoon are the best time to visit when the sun is slanting - gives a warmth to the pictures. The plan, room layouts are worth spending time.

Place is about 15km from sam sand dunes. Myth that this is a Haunted village however there is nothing like that . Though the History of this village is quite amazing to hear from the locals. As we entered the village we were crowded by little kids who stay during the day in the village and act a local guides.... More
