This small Fort is under renovation and less crowded because of off road location but will be a good tourist destination in future.
There is also one very ancient Kalika Mata temple

There was nothing to see it, waste of time & money! I suggest you to go to only Jaisalmer fort and come back, Nothing in desert as well.

This is the spot which gives one an idea about the expanse of the villages which were vacated and the grandeur and wealth of the villagers. It indeed makes one wonder as to how can such a thriving and rich community just decide and execute mass exodus within a short time such that no one knows. After all even when we pack for a three day holiday it's known all over! It's a reality check over the thrill and suspense of kul dhara ..we almost get it...money and loot and tragedy and then the cover up plays along as you walk in this fort ..small but elegant with beautiful jharokas and platforms to see the villages below. It indeed is a rallying call for those living below and you can sense the power of community. If one has to feel history and not the thrill of it then forget kul dhara this is the place to be

It is an abandoned fort which is well maintained. It is small but this must be inhabited by people in those times hence can see the ruins behind the fort. There is temple amongst the ruins which is spectacular. Should visit at sunrise or sunset.

Please visit only if you have a self driven car or a group as it is very secluded.

Even though the Fort is small and not much to see inside except some antiques and the walls, it is a nice stopover on a tour to the Desert National Park. Going there, picking up the atmosphere of the place, having a nice view of the landscape and the little abandoned village below the Fort, makes it a nice destination..

The ancient fort of Khaba dates back to the 13th century set amid a barren desert village was once populated by the Paliwal Bhramins. This fort was once an important part of Kuldhara administration and was the first point of entry for the traders who came from the Middle East and China. Today, most part of the fort is in ruin and abandoned.

I explored the ruins of the fort- century-old artefacts, pots etc. The view of the barren desert village standing on the top of the fort is breathtaking. There is also a geological museum exhibiting fossils inside the fort. I had this eerie feeling as I wandered on the dusty streets of the barren village picturing the past life of its inhabitants.

The best part of this place is that it is not thronged by tourist, there were very few tourists when we visited this place. It is better to visit this fort during the sunset or sunrise to enjoy sweeping desert views.

Located at an approx distance of 35 km from Jaisalmer city, is a must visit place for photographer and adventure seekers.

We reached the fort around 5 pm and the front of the fort was totally bathed in the setting sun. No human around the fort but around 50 something peacocks and peahens and pigeons. What a marvellous sight. We parked about 200 meters from the fort so as not to frighten the birds. I took my camera and slowly moved forward and the birds gave me some fantastic shots.
