Bhangarh Fort

This fort is located on top of a hill in the deserted village of Bhangarh. The village is in between Alwar and Jaipur and just at an end of the Sariska Tiger Reserve. One of the most interesting tourist attractions of Rajasthan, this fort is mostly known as one of the most haunted places in the world. The spookiness has been felt time and time again and the stories narrated by the villagers make the trip even more adventurous. You are however not allowed to enter the fort before sunrise or stay after sunset. To authorize this rule, the Archeological Survey of India has set up a board clearly stating this. There are mainly two stories that are known about this cursed fort. The first says that there was once as ascetic known as Balu Nath and King Madho Singh took his permission before building this fort. The saint had given him the permission on one condition that the shadow of his fort should never touch his house else the whole city will be devastated. Later one of the king’s descendents rose the height of the fort and it overshadowed the retreat of the sage after which destruction overpowered the fort. Another tales says that the princess of Bhangarh, Ratnavati was bewitchingly beautiful and that she started getting marriage proposal from an early age. At this time lived Sindhiya, a magician who was smitten by her beauty and wanted to marry her. Knowing that the match was impossible he tried to trick her with the help of black magic. The princess understood this and failed his plan that resulted to his death. Before dying he cursed that the Bhangarh Fort shall get ruined and no one shall ever be able to live there. This became true and there was a battle the following year in which Ratnavati was killed along with majority of others. It is said that Ratnavati had taken birth somewhere else and that the fort of Bhangarh still awaits the princess.

I started from Bangalore at 6:00 am  flight and landed Jaipur at 9:00 am. My curiosity straight away   took me to bhangarh fort(The most haunted place of india). Its is almost 100kms from Jaipur took about 2 hours to reach. Well the place is full of rich history, lots of mystery, and stories of past ghost of Rani and a magician. I must say the best place to visit around Jaipur. The place where fort located is very beautiful surrounded by 3 hills full of greenery and you can feel the richness of our architecture. This one of the kind where there is entire city is covered by thick walls. Ghe view from top of the fort made my day..

It felt fantastic to step on this place which has been rumored as haunted across the globe. To me, it felt simply beautiful! Just when you enter the gate, there's Lord Hanuman temple (to shoo away the ghosts may be :P ). Walk straight through the ruins, it will lead to the garden and the Fort. You can listen to the local guides especially kids explaining about the history of the place and the haunted activities take place every night which is quite interesting and entertaining too.

After a walk for a km in the scorching heat, we finally entered into the main fort. The fort looked so despair and broken. A proper care could have been taken. After putting some exercises on the staircase we climbed to the summit of the fort. Sun was at its peak and we were completely exhausted. One needs to be little careful while walking over the staircase and stones lying on the ground.
