Government of Rajasthan decided to develop it as as tourist spot due to its growing popularity as haunted site in 2010.

Our local guide narrated story about kuldhara transformation from crowded village to cursed land. he told us that 300 years back Kuldhara village was abundantly rich and highly cultured civilization flourished .

With Salim singh as the new prime minister came new taxes and oppression. He crossed his limits when his lusty eyes were set on a beautiful 15 year old girl in Kuldhara.

He commanded the villagers to hand her in 10 days.

On 9th day all 84 villages were deserted. while leaving the city, girl father cursed the king that this place shall remain inhabited.
