Outside the town, en route to the desert camps, all tourists make a stop at this deserted village. The completed temples and home look fascinating. However, this place is not necessarily a must see - if one happens to travel this way, one can stop by.

Its about 20 kms from jaisalmer and you can visit it on your way to sam sand dunes. There is an entry fee and parking fee too, The government is... More

A serene oasis in the middle of the desert is worth... More

Believed to be abandoned and haunted, there are just a few ruins to see. The structures look interesting & you could snap a few good photos. Though many of the ruins are being restored, so not sure how much would be the original structure. This place is quite far from the city, so if you don't have too much time... More

Kuldhara is an abandoned village around 30 km from Jaisalmer city on the way to Sam sand dunes. Once a thriving village now what is left of it are broken walls all around. Though there is not much to see around but those interested in exploring ruins can certainly enjoy the visit. Locals with some help from government have tried... More

The village is being restored in part for tourists, according to locals it is haunted and one must not bring anything back from this village as it is supposed to bring bad luck.
