Detailed Overview

A reminiscence of Lawrence of Arabia, Jaisalmer is a fort city located in the confines of India’s the Thar Desert. Nicknamed as the ‘Golden City’, Jaisalmer stands on a ridge of yellowish-golden sandstone. A giant fort is the prominent landmark of the city which is the second largest in the world. Jaisalmer, which literally translates to “The Hill Fort of Jaisal”, was founded in 1156 A.D. and is presently a World Heritage Site. Jaisalmer district is the largest in Rajasthan and sports the barren Thar Desert. The town was strategically located at an important interlink to facilitate trade between India and Persia. The novel architecture of the town, primarily forts and palaces, envelops one in a nostalgic reverie and reminds one of the princely heritage the town has inherited.

Kuldhara is an abandoned village located a short distance from town in the Thar desert. As with all good mysteries, there’re a number of theories surrounding the missing villagers and their motives for fleeing. Were they spooked? Or were they driven out? The two stories most commonly told involve the villagers being pursued out for either war or taxes, which seem entirely plausible. An interesting site with an interesting story behind it.
