Haunted stories of Bhangarh Fort

Bhangarh Fort is considered as one of the most haunted places in India. When a list of the most haunted places of the world is compiled then Bhangarh Fort always comes up on the list in the most haunted of places. The place is so haunted that even the Government of India’s organisation the “Archaeological Survey of India” has put up a board in Hindi asking people not to enter the area after sunset and before sunrise. Those disobeying the orders will have to face the consequences and the law. This is a very strange signboard if you ask me.

Why would the government prohibit people from entering the place when it’s dark? Does the government know anything that we don’t?

The story of Bhangarh Fort in Hindi The video below was made by a popular news agency and they show interesting stuff about the place. The news teams went to Bhangarh Fort with professionals that used gadgets to find what the truth was about this place. They found that there was some kind of negative energy emanating from certain rooms of the Bhangarh Fort. In fact, these negative energies seem to be coming from the very places that were thought to be the most haunted. In one of the rooms where heaviest negative energy was coming out, it is thought that was the room where Rani Ratnavati used to live. Although, they were not able to figure what these energies were but nonetheless these energies seemed to be very profound and watching some of the gadgets at work was very fascinating indeed. Despite nothing was found, these energies do seem to suggest the presence of some entity whatever that maybe. For now, we can simply say that it’s just inhabited by snakes and bats and the occasional wild animals. In addition to this, they also took photos of the entire place and showed that there were orbs in some pictures. Funny thing is that the orbs were of one particular shape in many of the photos. Why would orbs appear in the same shape in numerous photos? Very spooky!

Haunted stories of Bhangarh Fort

If you go to Bhangarh that lies about 85 km from Alwar town and about 50 km from Jaipur, you will realise that no one visits this place after dark. You will realise that there are no houses within a mile of Bhangarh Fort. The place is completely deserted. There are no houses and even if there are any, no one lives there. Funny thing is that you will realise these deserted house have no roofs. The roofs have collapsed. The fact is that no one builds houses around the area because of fear. There are some theories behind these fears. I can’t say if these haunted and ghost stories surrounding Bhangarh Fort is true or not but the place certainly has an eerie feeling. Locals say that strange noises can be heart at night in and around the fort, some say that there is a ghost market that springs to life, and some people have claimed to have been slapped while they were in the fort and so on. But many of the locals do not want to talk much about this fort and if you do happen to ask them about the fort then most of them will tell you to stay away from it and give you strange looks. The reasons are simple! Many people have died in the place. But the thing is that there are lots of loose boulders and stones lying around. In fact, the place is an excavation ground and people could have simply tripped over and hurt themselves. Wild animals roam at night because there is a Tiger Reserve called the Sariska Tiger Reserve on the edge of Bhangarh Fort and it is possible that many of these wild animals cross over at night to get away from tigers. No wonder people hear strange noises coming out from the fort at night. In addition, there are many open holes in many of the rooms of the fort. It is possible that those who stayed for the night at the fort could have fell into it and have died. This could be explanation of the missing people who spent the night at the Bhangarh Fort. You are not allowed to stay at Bhangarh Fort after dark Some have tried to stay in the fort after dark and many of them disappeared. There is a pool in the fort and in the summer locals bathe in it. Every year a few of these people die there but this hasn’t stopped them from taking a dip. Some have said that ghostly apparitions have been seen around the pool. Some have even said that the apparition is that of Rani Ratnawati who was a beautiful princess of the fort.

If you are one of those bloggers who are considering joining Postjoint then think again. You might be sleepwalking into a Google Penalty. Google clearly states that you shouldn't be accepting money for links. These people over at PostJoint are claiming that guest posts and paid or sponsored posts are two different things but in reality, they are the same thing – just the terminology is different. Google clearly states that talking money for links is not acceptable to them. Unless you don’t care about traffic from Google then it might be OK to join this site.
