Another one of Jaisalmer’s ancient and abandoned villages, Kuldhara once had Paliwal Brahmins as its residents. The curious thing about these Brahmins was that unlike their usual occupation, these Brahmins were actually traders and farmers. The settlement, which had some 84 villages, was abandoned almost overnight as the villagers mysteriously left their homes in Kuldhara.

The town lies about 20 kilometres away from Jaisalmer and now lies in ruins frequented by tourists. The sandstone buildings including homes, temples and other structures are found intact all across the town giving it a spooky air. The roads are wide and connect every house to a drainage system and the walls have inscriptions written in Devnagari script.
