About 200 years ago, Paliwal Brahmins used to live in Kuldhara village. The Diwan of Jaisalmer, Salim Singh used to collect heavy taxes from the habitants of Kuldhara village.
One day when Salim Singh saw the daughter of the local chief then he put his willingness to marry that girl as he sets eye on the girl. The girl was very beautiful and at the first sight, he just comprehensively falls in love with her beauty. He wanted to marry that girl either by hook or crook. So, he warned the villagers that if they don’t agree with his statement then he will destroy the whole village and kill everyone.

He gave the villagers about 24 hours deadline to complete his condition. They all were very frightened and thinking about what to do next? On one side they don’t want to marry their daughter to such a cruel inhuman person and on the other side, they were scared of him.
