The story of Paliwal Brahmins is the most accepted and said by the locals.

Is Kuldhara Haunted and Cursed or Just Rumors?

With this reason in mind, I visited this place with my friends on 15th Feb 2019.

We came across two different locals who live inside the village. Yes you read it right!!

The locals claimed to have been living inside the village for a while.So we started asking questions about the village and we specifically asked them if they saw any paranormal activity in the village.

To this they said that, they see shadows, hear whispers and other weird sounds during the night but during the day its calm and quiet, one does not feel or get those kinds of negative vibes or feel those energies during the day.

If they could see the shadows or hear the whispers during the night, were they not afraid? We asked.

To this they replied that they do get frightened at times but now they are slowly getting used to it. They try to ignore the whispers and noises during the night.

And they also believe that the spirits harm only those who react to the paranormal activities.

Exploring the Cursed Kuldhara Village

After listening to their side of the story, we went inside the broken and damaged houses just to explore. We couldn’t sense any of those energies.

I wonder if all the rumors like Kuldhara the Haunted Village, The Ghost Village of India, the cursed Village are true.

Surprisingly, there is a Temple inside the village.

One member of Indian Paranormal Society claimed to have observed paranormal activities at the site. The 18-member team of the Society along with 12 other people spent a night at the village. They claimed to have encountered moving shadows, haunting voices, talking spirits, and other paranormal activities.

And if you ask me about what I feel about the village, I may not be able to make a statement because I haven’t been there during the night and I haven’t experienced any paranormal stuff, but the locals have experienced as they claim.

Being claimed as the second most haunted place in India and all the stories related to it, the haunted village near Jaisalmer, The Kuldhara Village is worth visiting. Damaged houses say a lot of about the history behind the abandoned village.
