Kuldhara is a short trip from Jaisalmer. Combine Kuldhara with Kaba Fort for a single tour and stop by Jaishri lake to watch some beautiful birds too.

The villagers had left the village cursed along with people of other 83 surrounding villages more than 2 centuries ago. Since then this village is empty and abandoned. People do live in other surrounding villages but not in this. None of the houses in this village have roofs.

They charge Rs. 50 for the vehicle and also Rs 10 per person (excluding vehicle charges). It is an abandoned village many years ago. All the houses there are broken. (No roof tops for at least one house) . We can climb some house tops. Better go in a vehicle.

Well the village has been abandoned.. Some say it is haunted.. cant say for sure. doesnt make much difference when you visit it in the afternoon.. You can skip this, unless it is part of the desert safari package..

This place was simply awesome. How the people had designed it, the roads, the buildings everything. Though very little remain now but a delight. Plus the story associated with it is also breathtaking when suddenly one night all the villages left the village including nearby 85 villages.

A place must visit with a local guide, who can describe all detail. The story is very surprising & full of thrill.

Unusual place and home to several shoot scenes of many Hindi movies. It has several abandoned houses. It was once home of Paliwal brahmins who are known to have vacated the village upon insistence of the king. They set upon a curse that nobody will ever occupy the village again. Not that there is any dearth of space in the... More
