Actual ruins of a 300yr old village.. The houses, the rooms ..all there to explore. The tragic story behind it is displayed in a plaque at the entrance and inside. Climb atop a house to have a rooftop view of the whole area.. Marvelous

Kuldhara village also known as ghost village. However once you enter there's nothing spookiness about it. Its just another still village with ruins of the houses. It closes at 5 pm. The entry fee for indian tourist is 50 rupees.

We have visited this so called India’s own ghost village on the way to our desert safari in the morning(ideal timing). We suggest you before going to this place please know the history behind it.

This village has the broken houses abandoned a century back. This is slightly off the city and visit if you have time. 1 hour is good to spend there as there is nothing much other than broken houses and a sample house of the village.

A cactus park, a temple and many ruins of the abandoned village. This is an interesting sight and I really hope the Rajasthan government develops the museum further to make it more interesting for the tourists.

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.
