About Khaba Fort

Spend a morning eating breakfast with Peacocks at the Khaba Fort in Jaisalmer. At the crack of dawn, hundreds of peahens come here for their daily feeding session. If you make it here at 5 a.m, the sight would be nothing short of extraordinary. This attraction in Jaisalmer offers a rustic yet exquisite experience enveloped in the ruins of history. Known for its magical and spooky stories, Khaba Fort is a cursed village of Paliwal Brahmins, who abandoned this place 250 years ago due to unknown reasons. You can take a stroll around the crumbling structure of the fort where once more than 80 families lived. It still carries a deserted feel as the human activity is bare minimum here. There is a small museum that displays ancient artifacts. The view of the green field from the top of the fort is fantastic. It makes for great photography opportunities.
