Phantom towns and towns hold an appeal totally different from the remains of palaces and forts, for the most part since they allow us an opportunity to peep directly into the existences of individuals who once occupied them. Being a desert district, Rajasthan has no shortage of apparition towns except for not many of them have as much consideration as Bhangarh and Kuldhara, maybe because of the legends related with them. While we were in Jaisalmer, it was very normal for us to want a visit to Kuldhara, thus we did.
Lying 17km west of Jaisalmer, Kuldhara has a story. Somewhere in the range of 300 years prior, it used to be a prosperous town of Paliwal Brahmins under the province of Jaisalmer. As per the legend, the hostile stares of Salim Singh, the strong and defiled top state leader of the state, fell on the little girl of the town head and he wanted to wed her forcibly. He compromised the town with grave results on the off chance that they didn’t stick to his desire. Rather than submitting to the request for the dictator, the Paliwals held a gathering and individuals of 85 towns left their familial homes and disappeared. Yet, this was not all; prior to leaving, they put a revile on Kuldhara that nobody can at any point get comfortable their town from there on. To this date, the town stays fruitless; left practically equivalent to its occupants had left it hundreds of years prior. It is additionally said that individuals who have attempted to remain there around evening time have been pursued away by unusual paranormal peculiarity.
Another, more conceivable explanation can be that Salim Singh raised the duties so much that it became unviable for the neighborhood local area to get by in the town; and they hence chose to move to greener fields. In any case, individuals love the previous story; all things considered, who doesn’t need a hint of sentiment and secret in their stories!
While returning towards Jaisalmer, we took a go to right sooner or later and went on one more straight dusty street in nothing for a couple of kilometers, before the remains appeared. The sun was up overhead when we arrived at Kuldhara. This spot is a safeguarded landmark and is kept up with by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI). In the wake of taking the tickets and so forth, we entered the town on our jeep and passed through what more likely than not been the central avenue of the settlement. I should admit that it felt minimal scary columns upon lines of mud houses, their rooftops proceeded to destroy dividers remaining there like the skeletons of some miserable past. The scene was dry and dusty and in any event, during more joyful times, it would have been a battle to live there.
