Starting off with the most popular haunted place. The world knows well about this place in Rajasthan. The Bhangarh Fort in Rajasthan has two legends that make this place haunted and both are quite surreal and makes for an interesting read.

The first legend goes like this. A king named Madho Singh built the fort after obtaining permission from a spartan named Bala. The permission was granted after giving agreeing on a condition. The condition said that the shadow of the fort should not fall upon the home of the Spartan. However, the successor of Madho Singh, who didn’t know this had raised a fortification and thereby incurring the wrath of the Spartan and the place was doomed right after that.

The second legend is an even more interesting read. The princess of Bhangarh – Ratnavathi was the cause behind the spooky spell that was cast upon the fort and the places surrounding. It is believed that a black magician fell in love with the beauty of the princess and tried to woo her by a bewitching into a cosmetic that she uses. The princess suspecting foul play somehow found this and poured the cosmetic over a boulder thereby crushing the wizard. Before breathing the last, the wizard cursed the place saying that no one would live in this place hereafter and the curse stands to this day too.
