A story behind the most haunting village: Khuldra 

Today I am going to tell you a true story; a story of a Prime Minister, his love and the consequences afterwards narrated by a local villager.

Some 300 years ago, there used to be a Prime Minister of Jaisalmer, Salim Singh, the powerful and corrupt prime minister of the state. He was known for his lovemaking and his madness. While vising a town Khuldra, a village belonged to Paliwal community, 20 km north under the state of Jaisalmer, he fall on the daughter of the village head and he desired to marry her by force. He threatened the villagers with serious consequences, if they rejected his wish. Instead of accepting to order of the tyrant, the villagers held a council and villagers of 85 villages left their ancestral homes and vanished in the same night.

But this was not the end of the story; before leaving they put a curse on Khuldra that no one will ever be able to settle in their village afterwards. To this date, the village remains barren; left almost the same as inhabitants had left it centuries ago. It is said that people who tried to stay there at night were chased away by strange paranormal phenomenon.    

Keep following the blog for part-II of this story which is a personal experience at night in the village....
