Our driver took us here, knowing our interest in wildlife. We saw various desert birds and little rodents. The extensive ruins themselves were good to wander through and the history of the village was interesting. It was mostly crumbling walls but it's easy to pick...More

Place is good for a one time visit to learn about history. Well maintained. No guides. Archeological Survey of India need to make things better and welcoming.

Do visit if you are on your way from the City to the sand dunes. It’s a fun place to spend 30-45 mins or so. You can stay longer if you like posing for and clicking pics amongst ruins.

It's one of the most interesting places to visit. The stories are many and difficult to rely and identify which is true. Mysterious but worth a visit.

It's an abandoned village and so called Haunted. Read up on the history and visit it. It's interesting. It's wide spread and everything around is in war like aftermath state. And it's really fun to wander around, consider the backstory attached to it. Worth going.

This old abandoned village is silent for miles around and mostly rubble below the fort. It is worth visiting as it is on the way from Jaisalmer to the Sam sand dunes and many safari and camping grounds. Ask your driver to take the detour...More

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.
