Where people used to celebrate festivals, sit together in the night along the bon fire and which once was an oasis in the Thar desert, sadly is now an abandoned spot. Along with Bhangarh, this place Kuldhara is considered as one of the most haunted and cursed place.
Around 13th century, Paliwal clan migrated from Pali to settle in Kuldhara due to tyranny of the Pali king. Majority of the clan members were belived to have been brahmins, so mention of Paliwals come as Paliwal brahmins most of the times.
- With their knowledge and enterprising nature they turned Kuldhara (and 84 villages around Kuldhara) into a flourishing place for trade and commerce activities.
- The Paliwals were skilled farmers and were adept in cultivating crops like wheat in the desert lands. Its true, they were masters in identifying rock layers underneath the sand which could hold the required quantity of water for cultivation. Such was effluence built into the region by Paliwals that each new Paliwal family was welcomed with a brick and a gold coin from every other family in the village. The brick for building a house and the gold to start a livelihood. I have not heard of such levels of prosperity and brotherhood in the history of mankind.
