The place was a thriving town till mid of 19th century. A very prosperous town with excellent town planning. Everything was systematic (its still evident from the few houses that still remain). Suddenly all the residents vanished in one night with no reason. Historians are also clueless on this act. The place seems very magical, it has a group of few houses, a temple and courtyard which is restored by state Tourism department. The place looks like a haunted place, but it has a very beautiful houses, which gives excellent picture opportunity. A must place to visit when you are in Jaisalmer.
