Haunted Bhangarh Fort : The Ghost Town of Rajasthan

Garden at Bhangarh Premises
                                                        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.

Hello Everyone, I understand

Hello Everyone,

I understand why people are either thrilled, exhalted and or going paranoid just by the thought of the ASI board, I have travelled the world almost every hauntted place from East to West and from North to South, Hardly a handful of countries are left, I have a doctorate degree from Harvard University and another Doctorate from Princeton, i have taken these degrees in Archeological sites and paranormal scienceses and Mysteries of the unexplained (Some are made by the governments and others by the people who have been telling these stories from time to time, we have used all kinds of sound experts and machines that are being used by NASA and other ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) devices and did not find anything that we foreigners were hoping to see and we had nothing worth recording other than our partying there.... that's all... its all in the head, I agree with the fact that paranormal things are present in this world, but if you really want to experience something real? I would suggest that go to Shetland Islands in England and go to the "Grimister" and feel it for yourself and another place is in Norway, 1000Kms north of Oslo in Hammerfest, see that and I ll want to know your experiences there....

Regards, 

Thanks for sharing your

Thanks for sharing your experience. I would be happy to hear more of your stories. Keep dropping by.

Guys....I want to go there

Guys....I want to go there with some of my best friends who also are very excited to visit this place in night. We are about 20 people, 8 girl and 12 boy. I heard a lot of scary things about this place but I do not think that it would be very pathetic trip to us. As I know about this place, I heard some very horrorable stories behind the bars but not sure why people are too afraid to visit this beautiful place in night. I am hoping surely that we all will go there and will come back very securely with some amazing adventurous things to all of you to show here publically. Thanks

Warm Regards

Hei guys i have my mother

Hei guys i have my mother place just one km before bhangurh that is gola ka bass gaon... And i have seen this place from my childhood..  Its a beautiful place to see..  In the day time...  Dont be silly to go there in night its a humble request...  As my mother blongs from there i know that it is a very good place to visit in day times nothing in day times but please dont go in night..  Its the trouth that there is something different in nights which capture the nights of bhangurh...   i have ew examples that many people like u have reached there in nights but not now because its officialy ristricted by govt now because of some big incidents...  Later before 10 years its not restricted place at all very few people know about it but some of them come here for enjoing and when several incidents happen like people get lost...  From here one by one like many people are still unfind..  Some are find dead with no reasons...  No buddy kill them..  They were enjoying there in night but when people reach there in morning they fing them dead.  So these are very few. Reasons i have told u there are much more..  So dont dare this at all its realy a biggest hounted place of asia..
