Went with family while going to visit Jaisalmer's sand dunes, we all enjoyed this place of medieval era! Enthralling experience! A great photo opportunity considering the background and area surrounding it.

Worth a stop when you are coming to Jaisalmer. Can spend half and hour and click some photos. Remnants of deserted Village can be seen at close quarters.

Surely a great attraction to visit the abandoned village. The ghost stories trailing around makes it more interesting and thrilling. Must to a guided trip. Select your preferred time, mid-night or day-time.

The village is between Sam dunes and Jaisalmer city. I would recommend you to visit this village while on your way back from Sam. I would recommend you to carry food or travel back to Jaisalmer for any kind of refreshments
