After bidding goodbye to the desert, we reached the abandoned (and allegedly haunted) village, Kuldhara. While there are numerous stories of what that triggered the abandonment, it is not certain what actually happened. Even the informatory boards at the entrance mention that there is no surety in this regard. Regardless, the place is awesome and one can go inside the village, explore the houses/remains and roam around the streets, just beware of the thorny bushes. Obviously since we went during the day, we didn't feel that the place is haunted.Tip: If you want to roam around the streets of the remains in you own vehicle, go to Khaba Fort. It has similar ruins but you don't have to park your car outside and walk. It will give the true feeling of being in an abandoned village.
Day 5: Jaisalmer: Kuldhara VillageWhat a lovely sunrise it was the sun coming up the dunes, its light shining up the nearby areas like gold, we are sitting with hands in hands and living the life we want to. What else one can want? After a hefty egg breakfast in the desert we decided to go back to our huts but visit Kuldhara village in between.Kuldhara village charges: Car entry: INR 80Passenger: INR 50 per personKuldhara is a heritage site in Rajasthan. Abandoned over 200 years ago it is believed to be cursed by the residents who left it.
The haunted village, Kuldhara             Kuldhara is an abandoned village  in the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan, India. Established around the 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.
On the second day we were supposed to go for site seeing en route to our station. After our breakfast we first went to Kuldhara village, a supposedly abandoned village where people are not allowed after 6PM. Legend is that during crisis the village was evacuated in 60 minutes. Those who were there were rich people I suppose who didn't have time to take their belongings when they left. It's still rumored to have treasures but as no electrical equipment's work post 6PM they were not able to find them. Seems that even a news channel came once to check about the authenticity but none of their electrical equipment's worked post 6PM. More than anything that place reminded me of 'Un mela asathan...' song.
