Bhangarh Fort - The most haunted place

The Kachwaha leader of Amber, Raja Bhagwant Singh, built the Bhangarh fort in the 17th century. Madho Singh, his younger son, was the one who named it. The Bhangarh Fort is located in the Aravali Hills in Rajasthan's Alwar district, at the end of the Sariska Reserve. It is one of the most haunted places in the world, and because of this, it is renowned as a "horror fort." The haunted stories of Bhangarh Fort are both frightening and exciting. The ghostly tales that sound across the fort's walls have made Bhangarh Fort more famous. Tourists have reported seeing terrifying ghosts and hearing weird music and restless anklets breaking over the city and castle, and because of this, no one dares to visit this location after sunset. It's also said that those who went to the fort late at night never came back. 

Myths and reality: 

1.Myth: According to the Indian government and the authorities who have built a signboard informing visitors that no one can enter the historic site after dusk has fallen is because of supernatural abilities.

Reality: While the Archaeological Survey of India imposed the restriction, a government of India organization, local guards assigned in Bhangarh to implement the limits claim that the ASI is more concerned with the wild animals and dangerous predators lurking in the woods, given that Sariska Wildlife Reserve is a protected area.

2.Myth: The Bhangarh fort in Rajasthan is noted for its ghostly past. There is a mythology about rani Roopmati and the sadhu who cursed the place, and some believe their souls are still trapped in ruins.

Reality: Mr. Late Gaurav Tiwari, India's most prominent paranormal investigator, demonstrated no ghosts in the fort and that it is not haunted. There is only one location within the fort that releases negative energy.

What is the best way to get there?

Bhangarh Fort is one of the top sites to visit in Alwar for some unforgettable memories, and anyone visiting Jaipur should set aside a day or two to see Bhangarh.

The distance between Bhangarh and Jaipur is approximately 83 kilometers. We can get there in comfort by car, either in a taxi or on the bus. A taxi is a speedy and safe choice; however, buses are infrequent, and we may have to wait hours for one to arrive in Bhangarh from Jaipur.

How to go from Jaipur to Bhangarh:

  1. Bus: This is the quickest way to get to Bhangarh, but it is also the most expensive. From Jaipur bus station, we can catch a bus to Thanagazi or Dausa bus station. If we arrive at Dausa, we can walk to the fort; the journey takes around 20 minutes. We'll need to take a taxi from Thanagazi to Bhangarh. It's worth noting that bus frequency is low, so you'll either need to be sure of our timings or have a lot of patience.
  2. Taxi: Hiring a private cab is the best way to get to Bhangarh. For a round trip from Jaipur to Bhangarh, taxis charge roughly Rs. 3000. Along the journey, we'll have to pay tolls. We can address a shared cab from the Jaipur bus station if we are traveling alone, but we may have to wait until all of the seats are filled.

Summer is the best time to visit Bhangarh Fort because it is hot most days, but there are some days when the weather is lovely. Monsoons are not the best time to stay there because the humidity climbs to dangerously high levels during the short rainy season, and the rain can be rather heavy. Between November and February is the most fantastic time to come. We can comfortably tour the area at our leisure because of the lovely weather.

Timing: Bhangarh Fort is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Location of Bhangarh Fort: Gola ka baas, Rajgarh Tehsil, Alwar, Bhangarh, Rajasthan., Touristlink, Rome2rio, PackPoint, and many other websites can be used to arrange a trip.
