Kuldhara, when I was there I was so attracted by the calmness and loneliness of the place. Ruined building makes this place really amazing and gives a sense of good culture human life there. The water well is amazing construction.

An abandoned village with abundant history but only for 10 mins. Spoiler - a guide in jaisalmer may end up spoiling your fun by pre- emption in his exuberance. Nothing much to see when you reach. Poorly kempt

This place is around 4 kms from the main road connecting Sam sand dunes and Jaisalmer. The entire village has been vacated long back. We get to see the ruined houses and how they have built them using bricks and sticks. some portion of the houses are renovated by the govt for visitors to walk through. On the way out... More

On my visit to Kuldhara on 13th October 2016, I was very pleased to see the restoration work going on, which would enhance its tourism vallue many fold, I was rather shocked to see that the Ticket provider at the entry Gate (a kilometer before the village) is openly and brazenly cheating the Jaisalmer Vikas Samiti. The entry fee is... More

Visiting "Kuldhara" - the ghost town and haunted village - seems scaring! On our way to awesome "Thar Desert" and "Sam Sand Dunes", our tour made a short stop at "Kuldhara Abandoned Village", just 18km outside of Jaisalmer, and whose origins date as far back as the 13th century. The legends about the abandoned village are much more interesting than... More

It might be a great place as its told today, but without anythign convincing. All seems a make up story, no maintenance, something has started, but not sure what it is exactly. Not told to any tourists anything

The myth and mystery surrounding the place is legendary and more interesting than the ruins themselves. If you've been to Hampi, this place pales in comparison. All you see is a bunch of ruined houses, but there is no way to imagine the lives these villagers lived. The vastness and emptiness around is interesting. If it falls on your way,... More
