The ghost village of Kuldhara, around 25 km west of Jaisalmer, has an interesting historical background. It is a deserted village now and has remained that way for almost 200 years now. The houses, or the remains of them, depict a Hindu architectural style with an inner and outer courtyard, kitchen and stables as well as a ‘tulsi manch’.  The houses are yellowish in colour depicting the colour of the mud and stones used to build them.   It is said that the residents of Kuldhara and that of 83 other neighbouring villages were forced to vacate their homes because of their ruthless rulers. The residents were all Paliwal Brahmans who had stayed there for generations, for almost 500 years.  According to belief, the Paliwals had put a curse on the village that nobody will ever be able to inhabit it again.    The village is accessible from sunrise to sunset and entry fee is INR50 for individuals and INR100 for vehicles.
