I liked the place is really peaceful. It is an abandoned place or u can say haunted village. You gonna love it when with friends at night. It's amazing fun.

If somebody is visiting Jaisalmer, this is a must visit on the way to the desert. The history of the abandoned village dates back to centuries with amy stories told and untold which reverberates into the ruins and flows by the winds of time...

The deserted village looked very calm and peaceful but it has a terrible history to it. We imagined how it would look at night!

True to Indian tales of adding melodrama - Kuldhara is a saga of villagers uniting against the king Salem Singh - they vacated the villages overnight coz they were against marrying off their Brahmin community girl to the Kshatriya King .. what is left now...More

Not much is left but it's interesting to listen to the story while imagining what it was like those days. Might be ghostly, might not be. Some ruins and temples can be of a great sight.

This place is absolutely ruined. There ia nothing to really see. Its an abandoned village. Only one house and a temple os partially left. There are many beggers who will keep bothering you. There is no ticket.

The village is between Sam dunes and Jaisalmer city. I would recommend you to visit this village while on your way back from Sam. I would recommend you to carry food or travel back to Jaisalmer for any kind of refreshments
