Kuldhara Abandoned Village, Jaisalmer

(850+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Kuldhara Abandoned Village by using our Jaisalmer itinerary planner.

  • Super ghost towan in the desert and so nice to see tham there's good5to see ghe diteal of stone is nice and oasis is great  more »
  • We don't know why an entire village left in one night: is it the refuse to marry the daughter with a maharajah or just the increase in taxes? It is a beautiful melancholic place - under construction.  more »
  • many construction sites, certainly much historical background, which is at the moment a large parking lot and some not yet finished buildings. Not really worth
