Jaipur Bhangarh and Abhaneri Full Day trip
We will pickup from hotel then drive for Bhangarh. Bhangarh is famous for mystery. The Bhangarh Fort is a 17th-century fort built in the Rajasthan state of India. It was built by Man Singh I for his younger son Madho Singh I. It was named by Madho Singh after his grandfather Man Singh or Bhan Singh. There are three legends related to the history of the fort city, which is reported to be haunted. No one is allowed to remain in the precincts of the fort at night, as per the notice board put up by the Archaeological Survey of India at the entrance.One version of the legend is that, a sadhu named Baba Balau Nath lived within the fort area. It was his injunction that any house built in the precincts of the fort should not be taller than his house and if the shadow of any such house fell on his house, it would result in destruction of the entire fort town.
In another version, N.K. Sinhai, the wizard who was adept in black magic, fell in love with Ratnavati, the princess of Bhangarh. She was very beautiful and had suitors to marry her from many royal families of the country. One day the princess, at 18 years of age, went shopping with her friends and was buying Ittar (scent). The wizard saw this and replaced the scent with a love potion in order to ensnare the princess. He offered the potion to her so that she would take a liking to him and marry him.However, the princess sensed the wizard’s trickery. When he offered her the bowl of potion, she threw it onto a big boulder nearby. As a result, the boulder started rolling down towards the wizard and crushed him. Before he died, he made a curse that Bhangarh would be destroyed soon and no one would be able to live within its precincts. Subsequently, Bhangarh Fort was invaded by the Mughals from the north and the city was surrounded and sacked .10,000 people lived in the fort city at that time. All the people in the fort, including the princess, were killed. The present state of the fort is attributed to the curse of the wizard and people believe the ghosts in the fort are those of the princess and the wizard.
