Excellent historical background with paliwal community and business city . The fort once collapsed is rebuilt with the same material. Awsm view of a abandon village of khabia .after visiting here kuldhara looks wastage of time.

Should visit if you want to see the unexplored
Oct 2019 • Couples
It is an abandoned fort which is well maintained. It is small but this must be inhabited by people in those times hence can see the ruins behind the fort. There is temple amongst the ruins which is spectacular. Should visit at sunrise or sunset.

Please visit only if you have a self driven car or a group as it is very secluded.

Great little Fort with nice view
Aug 2019
Even though the Fort is small and not much to see inside except some antiques and the walls, it is a nice stopover on a tour to the Desert National Park. Going there, picking up the atmosphere of the place, having a nice view of the landscape and the little abandoned village below the Fort, makes it a nice destination..

A Forgotten Fort
Jan 2019 • Solo
The ancient fort of Khaba dates back to the 13th century set amid a barren desert village was once populated by the Paliwal Bhramins. This fort was once an important part of Kuldhara administration and was the first point of entry for the traders who came from the Middle East and China. Today, most part of the fort is in ruin and abandoned.

I explored the ruins of the fort- century-old artefacts, pots etc. The view of the barren desert village standing on the top of the fort is breathtaking. There is also a geological museum exhibiting fossils inside the fort. I had this eerie feeling as I wandered on the dusty streets of the barren village picturing the past life of its inhabitants.

The best part of this place is that it is not thronged by tourist, there were very few tourists when we visited this place. It is better to visit this fort during the sunset or sunrise to enjoy sweeping desert views.

Located at an approx distance of 35 km from Jaisalmer city, is a must visit place for photographer and adventure seekers.

The secluded fort.
Mar 2019 • Friends
We reached the fort around 5 pm and the front of the fort was totally bathed in the setting sun. No human around the fort but around 50 something peacocks and peahens and pigeons. What a marvellous sight. We parked about 200 meters from the fort so as not to frighten the birds. I took my camera and slowly moved forward and the birds gave me some fantastic shots.

Where did they go?

A lovely place to wander among the ruins, very quiet. We heard the entire village just disappeared one night rather than have one of their women taken as bride to a local official. Courageous people.

Not worth it

There is nothing much here and rarely people visit this fort. It's on the way to Sand dunes and Kuldhara.

Abandoned fort. Amazed to see pack of peacocks and doves in front of the fort. The security feeds them daily. Can get a view of kuldhara village too. It's also situated in an abandant place.
