Stop At: Kuldhara Abandoned Village, On the road to Sam Sand Dunes and the Thar Desert, Jaisalmer 345001 India
You will be picked-up from your hotel in Jaisalmer in a private air conditioned vehicle. A little over 20 kilometres to the west of the desert town of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, lies Kuldhara. Kuldhara stands desolate and an uncanny silence prevails all around. This village was abandoned by its people 200 years ago. It is believed that the residents of the entire village fled one dark night, leaving behind their homes and everything within them. Kuldhara was abandoned by its very own people. No one saw the thousand-odd members of the village leave. All that is known is they cursed the town when they left – that no one would ever be able to settle down in Kuldhara again.
That curse stays true till date because the town is barren and uninhabited. The houses are almost in the same condition as they were left behind by their inhabitants. As I climb up the steps of one such home, I can see the entire expanse of the village. Lanes and brick homes, equidistant from each other, are neatly laid out. Locals believe the ghosts of Kuldhara still haunt the place.
Kuldhara today is maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India as a heritage site. To conclude, you will be driven back to your hotel in Jaisalmer.
