Great and mysterious, the sound of wind in your ears and the silence questions the unanswered, how and why did the paliwal brahmins leave into nowhere just a fortnight. Some time it'd have been a place for thousands to live.

Poorly presented with no signage. Trash and filth everywhere. The employees including the surly police officer need to be replaced. A wonderful story and with the right presentation could be a very interesting tourist attraction.

This place gives some strange feelings that can't be described in words. It's a abandoned place with lots of myths about it

It was part of the package we took from Damodar desert camp. The story behind the village is interesting. Some news channels have popularized it by calling it as haunted village but that's actually not true. The entry ticket is only 10 rupee per person....More

There is a story you head about though you does not feel the same when you go inside. Nothing much in day time & night you don't go.

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.
