Kuldhara Village-The Ghost Town

#Village
Kuldhara Village in Jaisalmer

Amidst the backdrop of the barren desert and sparse vegetation, lies this surrealustic abandoned village which reflects a rich historical past of the propserious paliwal brahmans,who originally hailed from Kashmir. Legend has it that they orchestrated an overnight exodus, failing to cope with the atrocities of the local minister called Salim Singh, who took fancy for the village chieftains beautiful 16 year old daughter. Replete with folklore of ghostly hauntings, this village is what legends are made off. The locale is a photographers delight as it has a deluge of artistic angles, only to add to your canvas. A must see for people for a penchant for photography.
