"A quiet abandonned village in the desert"

Kuldhara is an interesting ghost village, 18km from Jaiselmer. Marvelouse houses, courtyards and temples are still there. Everything is very quiet and only a few tourists visit it. It was abandonned 100 years ago by the Brahmins for an unclear reason. 50Rs for entrance by car. You cannot stay overnight at this place for the moment.

Kuldhara is an abandoned village in the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan, India. Established around 13th century, it was once a prosperous village inhabited by Paliwal Brahmins. It was abandoned by the early 19th century for unknown reasons, possibly because of dwindling water supply, or as a local legend claims, because of persecution by the Jaisalmer State's minister Salim Singh.

Gradually, it acquired reputation as a haunted site, and the Government of Rajasthan decided to develop it as a tourist spot.
