Mysterious town

In Africa, there is place called Kolmanskop few distance from the port of Lüderitz and this place is called a “Ghost town”. Century ago, Lüderitz was flooded people to this desert as there was this diamond fever and the town was well established with schools, casino, hospitals and so on within a year or so. After First World War there was steady decline in diamond sales and along with that people started deserting the town mysteriously. The houses and the buildings are now covered with sand and gives overall eerie look.
