haunted places around the world - Bhangarh Fort

This 17th century fort is the most haunted place in India

Entry into Bhangarh Fort is restricted after sunsetBhangarh Fort, also known as ‘Bhoot Bangla’ was a small city consisting of palaces, temples and gates at the foot of a mountain and was abandoned in 1783. Two stories spin around the fate of this place – one being a curse of a holy man who forbade the height of the buildings in the town to be taller than his own and when this did happen one day, he is said to have cursed the entire town. The second story goes around a wizard who was in love with the Princess of Bhangarh and used his spells to make her fall in love with him. But when she annulled his spells, the bitter wizard cursed a spell on the town. It is now believed that anyone who enters the city at night will never come out again. Paranormal activity is often reported around the Dancers’ Haveli and Jauhari Bazaar, hence entry into the fort is restricted after sunset.
