Kuldhara Abandoned Village, Jaisalmer
(2.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visited this village to return with Safari. Since English is not very proficient when there came not quite understood what these ruins. Only occasionally terrifying whine local Hindus-pranksters gave us the realization that there is something related to ghosts. Perhaps it is even good, do not cheat. However, several mystical moments still happen: 1. In an abandoned temple where filming inside the box saw though person tried to zafotat', then then I looked it was not a rag, although at first sight it is very reminiscent of a person, but an even bigger surprise was when looked at this picture, everything was blurry and the nothing was ... Although the shot exactly, not wobbling. 2. In the basement of a House, there is a hole. From there, the sounds of Squeak when I climbed back on me from crashing a flock of bats. Interesting that the story of this place said just a couple days ago (spusja month after the trip)))
