Many of us have been to Jaiselmer and seen the magic of the Golden Fort immortalized by Satyajeet Ray. But many of us do not go to explore the places around Jaiselmer which have all gone up to make Jaiselmer as we see it today. This was one of the 64 such townships which was abandoned over a very short... More

It is abandoned village but maintained and renovated by govt. A story behind it as everyone run away in a night. Good place for photography.

We visited the abandoned village in the off season so at the time of visit we were the only two tourists. I was amazed to see how big the village was and how well preserved it is, considering it has been empty for a hundred years (or at least that's what I was told by a local). The only thing... More

Its interesting how the full village was deserted overnight ! most of the houses are in ruins now but you still see the structure and can imagine that place being lively at one point in time !! You will find lot of locals trying to convince you to take a guide but its not that vast afterall .. Nothing much... More

I went here along with my friends.. approximately 10 km short of sam sand dunes and turn on the left leads to kuldhara village. 5km from the turn. at the outset it looks like you are entering a fort. but it is a bit of a drive inside and one can drive through the village . the village is quite...

The legend of this village is also steeped in history. The entire village emptied out overnight. The village is in ruins. Only one temple remains, this too seems to be a recent addition.

This place is known as a haunted place near Jaisalmer as many years ago the occupants of this village abandoned this place overnight. There are old remains of the house and you get a strange and eerie feeling. I would not recommend anyone to visit this place at night.

This place has a sad story behind it, be sure to ask about it. The homes are mostly destroyed but one can still imagine what it would have been like to live there. The gatekeepers are friendly and hospitable. Recommended.

Abandoned village with a haunted story ( Actually 1 among 80 villages which were abandoned overnight, here the ruins remain till date). Do ask your local driver/guide to tell you the story. A must visit on your way to the sand dunes but not so much just for this village. Makes for an interesting backdrop for photography. Closes after sunset.... More
