“A night tour”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We went on a haunted trail to the village organised by Suryagarh Hotel and besides giving us the chills it was quite an experience. You definately do feel a presence which will send shivers up your spine but you have to go there to experience it for yourself

“Kickin' it Indiana Jones style”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Kuldhara is the ancient ruins of a Palival town abandoned only 100 years ago when the local lord kicked the entire village out of his domain after being refused a bride from the village. The Palival are cursed and can't flourish on the land here so they up and left... more recently Rajput settles are starting to move in but the village of Kuldhara is site to behold with collapsed stone home after stone home in many cases with intricate stone work and adornments scattered around. I even tried my hand a re-stacking and old stone column so that the carvings lined up... I did it but tried after the first 3 heavy stones...

I loved this and strongly recommend it!

“Desolate ruins of an abandoned village”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Very atmospheric, haunting ruins. On the way to Sam dunes, and almost everyone stops for a quick look. The village has been used a movie location and I suspect the one house remaining in reasonable condition has been renovated for such purposes.
