Yet another fascinating and slightly spooky fort in Jaisalmer, Khaba Fort, was once inhabited by the Paliwal Brahmins. It was then suddenly deserted for mysterious reasons. The fort still has the ruins of the homes of some 80 families that used to live here more than 200 years ago.

When you visit the fort, you can take a walk around the crumbling structure and then take a tour of the small museum that carries ancient artefacts. Khaba Fort still carries an abandoned feel with very minimal human activity in the area. While you will see very few humans, you would be pleasantly surprised to see a number of peacocks around the fort.

You can combine your visit to Khaba Fort with a trip to Kuldhara Village.

    The view of the green fields from the top of the fort is really beautiful and makes for great photography.
