The abandoned village of Kuldhara in Rajasthan has its own story to tell! This more than 300-year old village, which is about 15 km west of Jaisalmer, was once a happy and prosperous village established by Paliwal Brahmins. According to a popular legend, the evil Diwan of Jaisalmer called Salim Singh had malicious intentions for the daughter of the village head (mukhiya). He desired to marry her by force and commanded the villagers to hand her over or bear the consequences. All the heads of about 85 villages gathered that night and decided to leave the village to save their honour. However, they cursed the place before leaving that no one will ever be able to live there afterwards. And till date, Kuldhara Village remains deserted. As per people living nearby, Kuldhara is now a haunt of ghosts and spirits.
