There are abandoned homes. Just walk around the place to get a feel. It is about 15mnts drive from the city of Jaisalmer.

You need to travel a lot for this. but make sure your not looking for greenery. and carry water in the entire vicinity you wont able to find water except a soda shop which is not encouraged to have in sunny day.

these are actual ruins from past 200 years, it was all broken when we visited this place, but still it was worth, it is on the way to SAM sand dunes, some 5 KM inside.

The place has an interesting background ..some more development is needed to make the place attractive.

If you have seen some demolished or abandoned sites like Hampi before, this is not really a place that would be interesting.

Kuldhara , locals say it's a abandon village where the pali brahmins used to live and left the place in almost overnight to save their little girl from salim singh. A village kept as it is with a bit restoration for tourist attraction. Nothing great.

We all liked this place as you just meander around and take it in. The reason for it being a ghost village is unsure which adds to the eerie ness.

yes there is an entrance fee. This place is not worth a visit but is surely something different from the other places of interest. If you have extra time you can go there.
