Kuldhara Abandoned Village, Jaisalmer

(2.6/5 based on 800+ 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.
