Bhangarh is reportedly the most haunted place in India. In-fact there is a board put up by the Archaeological Survey of India, near the main entrance gate of the fort, prohibiting people from staying here after sunset. All this hoopla about this place, had built up massive expectations and made it a must visit in my travel list. Finally came the time when I got the opportunity to face it.
We had gone to Sariska on a weekend trip and decided to club our Bhangarh visit with the afternoon jungle safari. We left the Sariska hotel after a very heavy breakfast and headed straight to Bhangarh.
It was a mere 35 km journey, which should take around 1.5 hours max; but thanks to the worst roads I have ever seen in my life, it took us 3 hours to reach the haunted fort. It's incorrect to call it a road, in fact it was more like a stretch of potholes with some road in between. The good part was that there is hardly any traffic so we could easily maneuver the car whichever way we could to reduce the assault on its shock absorbers. My lil one though loved the roller coaster ride. Apart from our aching muscles the ride also gave us a chance to get up close and personal with a sambar deer before it galloped in a nearby field. There are also countless peacocks and peahens in the fields.
