Haunted Bhangarh Fort : The Ghost Town of Rajasthan

                                                        Garden at Bhangarh Premises
Bhangarh
is a deserted town with some 10000 dwellings established in 1613 by Madho Singh, younger brother of great Mughal general, Man Singh of Amber. Bhangarh was abandoned soon after being built and supposedly after it was cursed by a magician. Bhangarh fort offers an intact view of the medieval past. Apparently, the Bhangarh town had been desolated by an old mughal invasion, and is just reverting back to being habited again.

premises are enclosed by a partially ruined wall. Other than dwellings, ruins of Bhangarh also include gardens, havelis, banyan trees and temples of Lord Someshwar, gopinath, mangla devi and Keshava rai. But the enigmatic attraction is a secluded chhatri on the hill top which catches attention of all the travelers. In entirety, the random placement of all these sites within Bhangarh premises may look freighting and mysterious at the same time.

Archeological importance of the haunted town of Bhangarh:

Bhangarh is an ancient town of archeological importance. During recent excavations different types of tools used by early man have been recovered from the pre-historical site of Bhangarh. The old town of Bhangarh, as the ruins show was surrounded on three sides by elevated hills where wild undergrowth is seen today. There were natural springs and waterfalls there and one such is found near the temple of lord Someshwar. The Archeological survey of India (ASI) has put up a sign board at Bhangarh stating (among others): “Entering the borders of Bhangarh before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited.” Lot of tourists who visit this Bhangarh affirms that there is a strange feeling in the atmosphere of Bhangarh, which causes symptoms of anxiety and restlessness.

Bhangarh ghosts: Myths, Curse, Devastation and horror stories:
Madho Singh built the town of Bhangarh with the approval of an ascetic Baba Balanath, who meditated there, though Baba Balanath predicted “look my dear chap! The moment the shadow of your palace touches me you are undone. The city shall be no more!” In ignorance Ajab Singh, the grandson of Madho Singh raised the palace to such a height that the shadow reached the forbidden place. Hence the devastation of entire town of Bhangarh happened.

The another and stronger myth goes as follow:
A tantric battle engaged between the gorgeous queen Ratnavati and the wicked sorcerer Singhia Sevra, who was attracted by the queen’s beauty. Desperately, he tried to trap her in his magical ploy, and failed every time, as the queen herself was a master in the tantric art.The last battle took place on the day when the queen losing eventually her temper, transformed a glass bottle containing the massaging oil into a big rock and hurled it towards the hill-top and the rock started rolling towards the wicked tantric. Sensing his looming death, Tantric concentrated all his powers and spatted his dying curse:  “I die! But you too, you Ratnavati shall not live here anymore. Neither you, nor your kin and these walls of the city, none shall see the morning sun!” In that night, all the treasure of the Bhangarh was transferred to the new site of Ajabgarh and the next morning everything was leveled to the ground after a severe commotion. And as per the ancient tales, Ratnavati died in the very next year during a battle between Bhangarh and Ajabgarh.
Singhia Sevra (Wicked tantric) chhatri can be seen on the top of the hill.

You can stay at Dausa or

You can stay at Dausa or Alwar... Dausa will be nearest town where you can get accommodation and all... The best plan would be hiring your private car and stay in the premises of the fort as long as you want and then recede back to your hotel at Dausa/Alwar...

btw, Since when Kochi became a small town of Kerala... Laughing out loud

I do believe ghosts exist

I do believe ghosts exist because I have experiences..I am not scared of them because they can't harm you physically but mentally. Bhangarh is the haunted place and we have lot of evidences to prove it as me and my friends had already explored it. We survived it because we knew how to...

if u have the proof then let

if u have the proof then let known because i m not beliving in ghost

mai gaya hun bangarh aur waha

mai gaya hun bangarh aur waha raat bhi ruka hun escaping frm guards.
and guys u wont believe me i m alive not being murdered by a ghost
It is all ur false thinking that there r ghosts
bt in reality there is only 1 god.
the fear inside u is created by these hox mythics about the spell nd all that magicians's ruin/sprit. There is nothing like that, just peace that we enjoyed with my two frnds i.e, akhilesh nd nitin, they r also alive.
nw plz if u want to knw anything abt that place msg me on facebook @ vickykoul04@gmail.com
or call me on +918529698175.

In Dumas beach, you wont be

In Dumas beach, you wont be allowed to visit at the night as there is a tight security from the Gujarat police..It is a haunted place ; however, they won't harm it.. I have visited this place numerous times because I have a house near it...Ghosts can't harm you....Bt it can trouble you mentally. You need to have a mental strength. People who are weak by heart they suffer the fear..or else nothing can harm you..have faith in God...Spirits can be destroyed but they always have a limitation and limitation is the god...nothing cn change his decision
