Few kilometers ahead from Kuldhara lies another village called Khaba. Anil suggested us to take a quick look at the fort as we had enough time in hand. This village is one of the 84 villages which were abandoned along with Kuldhara. The inhabitants of these villages were Paliwals Brahmins; who were known for being smart farmers and traders, who contributed a substantial amount to the Jaisalmer kingdom’s exchequer. After spending half an hour clicking photographs and checking out the fort and ruins, we headed straight to Sam dunes.
