3. Kuldhara, Jaisalmer: More than 200 years back something strange…very strange took place in this small Indian village of Jaisalmer which turned a lively village in to a deserted place. Nothing much can be found in the history books about this place and thus Kuldhara still remains a mystery in the minds of people. It is believed that a series of strange missing incidents took place and almost all the people in the village dissapeared due to some unknown reasons. Their presence however can still be felt today.
This is a sad story ……
For more than 200 years, left and cursed, there is a story to tell this Rajasthani village why once the prosperous village has left nothing but an old place? Consider the rare presence of human existence, the vegetation is very low and the last beats have an attempt to wander goats. Noon the sun is terrible and Kuladhara becomes desolate … an unethical silence is prevalent all around.
About 200 years ago, Kuldhara Paliwal was home to Brahmins. During this time, Jaisalmer’s Divan Salim Singh was known for his misbehavior and methods of unethical tax collection, he established his eyes on the beautiful daughter of the village chief. The Divine Girl had the intention and she told the villagers that if they come in their own way, then they will be able to recover heavy taxes on them.
Fear of Dewan’s anger, a dark night, all the villagers fled away after their homes and everything inside them. Kuldhara was left by its own people, no one had seen thousands of members of the village. No one knows for generations now that the polyvals have re-established. They all know that when they left the city they cursed …. That no one will ever be able to sit in the pool again.
No matter whether you believe in ghosts or not, the fact is that these stories, sightings and incidences are unexplained and have remained as mysteries since ages.
