Kuldhara Abandoned Village, Jaisalmer

3.3
Discover the stories and consider the mysteries of a ghost town at Kuldhara Abandoned Village. Once a prosperous town, it has been said that its inhabitants, and those who lived in 83 nearby villages, all left one night in 1825, laying a curse on the town that it would never again be populated. The reason for their desertion remains the subject of much debate; the most common story holds that an unjust prime minister levied heavy taxes on the citizens when they said he could not marry a girl who lived in the village. Cursed or not, no one has moved back to this town in the desert, leaving its buildings as evocative ruins with an architectural elegance and mysterious atmosphere.

  • This is a very nice place to go and see around. You will see the old village such very well defined. ancient villages of India was designed very properly and you'll only see the dimensions of that village right now. The best part of the visit was Isa a parking space for every home and there is underground room as well which might have been used during those days during sandstorm. Go and check it out its really good place to spend an hour or so.
