It is quite overrated. It was very crowded. The historic context is interesting. Can visit for a couple of minutes.

This place is over-hyped in my view. Other than the ruins there's nothing to see there. Most houses have lost their roofs and just have part of their walls standing. There's a cactus park next door which is very poorly maintained. Can skip. The highlight...More

Words fall short to describe the painful incident that happened with the Paliwals. Hatsoff to them, for their unity in Upholding their Pride. Worth visiting this place. It is also said to be second most haunted place in India.

Whatever be the reason for people abandoning village, this place reminds us of the old architect of common man's residence. The roofing system was mainly interesting to watch.

A haunted village where now no one stays. There is a entry fee for visit.and there is some problem on Google map we face recently. There is an another way and good road to reach there.

I went there in the afternoon, and out before dusk. There are only ruins everywhere. The place is clean. To attract more tourists, the place must definitely be renovated.

yes there is an entrance fee. This place is not worth a visit but is surely something different from the other places of interest. If you have extra time you can go there.
