BHANGARH : THE MOST HAUNTED PLACE
Guys if you are also an adventure
loving person like me who finds horror stories interesting, this article is
definitely for you.
I personally love to discover new
places specially with some interesting history or horror background.
So talking about the the most haunted places in india BHANGARH
FORT comes at the top of this list.
The Indian Ghost Town of
Bhangarh in Rajasthan is one of the scariest places in India to visit, in
addition to being one of the most abandoned places in India. However, this
tag has not perturbed visitors from making frequent trips to this ghost town.
Located near a famous forest in the area, this town is now
slowly luring visitors from around the area, and country, to visit it. However,
it should be noted that if you decide to visit the town after sunset, you will
be not be allowed. In fact, there is a strict warning that it is out of bounds
after the sun sets.
As we drove up to the fort of
Bhangarh in Alwar district of Rajasthan, from the Sariska Tiger Reserve, we
passed by the Ajabgarh fort. Since entry into Bhangarh is restricted after
sunset, we were in a hurry. I didn’t climb up the Ajabgarh fort, but I explored
its base. A local lad grazing sheep told me that there was nothing that I would
be able to see from below except the four walls. If I had known its
significance in the destiny of the fort I was going to, I would have made more
of an effort.\
The drive to Bhangarh fort was eerie. We passed through a village that was ostensibly inhabited. The main road
was lined with the ruins of once-beautiful havelis.
The Bhangarh fort was built by the Kachwaha ruler of Amber, Raja Bhagwant Singh, for his younger son Madho Singh
in 1573 AD. Madho Singh’s brother was the celebrated Man Singh, who was Akbar’s general. Madho Singh was succeeded by his son Chatr Singh. It was Chatr Singh’s son Ajab Singh who built the fort of Ajabgarh.
There are warning signs all around Bhangarh Fort
Now, there may not be ‘Haunted’ written in neon on
the information boards at the site, but surely the constant urging by ASI
(Archaeological Survey of India) to leave the premises before sunset clearly
indicates something. The boards clearly say it again and again that it is
prohibited to stay within the environs of Bhangarh before sunrise and after
sunset. There have been quite many incidents of getting lost and even deaths in
the area, hence the precaution.
Strange as it is, Bhangarh Ka Kila could
be the only tourist place in India, where the entry of foreign tourists is not
freely permissible. They need to obtain a special permit to gain entry into the
premises and Bhangarh Fort.
It is not only the Bhangarh Fort story but also the fact that among the
tourists getting lost in the region , there’s a large number of foreigners
which angered the government officials owing to their disregard for rules and
caused them to take the strict step.
It is completely forbidden to stay inside Bhangarh Fort at Night. ASI has put up boards at
several spots in Bhangarh warning against staying in the premises after sunset
and before the sun rises. You can hear strange noises from inside the fort
premises during night time and the air gets charged with an uneasy heaviness.
It is said that spirits roam inside the closed gates at these hours and the
place becomes a hotbed for paranormal activities. In fact, if the locals are to
be believed, whoever who has attempted to stay back in the fort or the nearby
area after dark, has never returned to tell their tale.
Hope you found this article interesting and people who actually love to explore haunted places will surely love to visit this fort.
