Bhangarh Fort, Alwar

(3.6/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Set at the foot of the green Aravali hills, Bhangarh Fort has a reputation as the most haunted place in India. The 17th-century fortress used to house a village, but the villagers moved outside of the fort walls for fear of spirits haunting the place. Roam the deserted ruins of the well-preserved stronghold. The silence here can be pleasant or eerie, depending on your stance on the numerous spooky legends. Consider combining your visit with a trip to the nature reserve nearby. With our world travel planner, Alwar attractions like Bhangarh Fort can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Love it..!! Simply awesome..!! People says that the place is haunted but i love to be there.. Its too beautiful place.. Old is gold.. And the broken market streets, houses, temples and the fort are so attractive.. N the carvings over there are so beautifully done..
  • Historical ruins. Nice scenic view all round. Much greener in view that it is in Rajasthan. Famous for being most haunted. Covered areas inside the fort are disgustingly smelly. Illegal people forcing to pay parking fees unlawfully, ASI should take notice and act.
  • A couple of hours drive from Jaipur, in the land of a thousand forts, the fort of Bhangarh has consistently topped the list of the most haunted place in the country. Not much is known about the fort and the entire town the lies sprawled in front of it. Rumours of curses abound and all that meets the eye is a town that appears to have been abandoned at the spur of an instant. Is there a grain of truth in its many creepy stories or can they be explained away through logic?
  • Picturesque place but not maintained at all. Glasses of beer and whiskey bottles are strewn across the campus. If anyone expects to get a spooky feeling, they are in for major disappointment. Don't go on weekends, too many people.
  • One of the most beautiful Fort . . It doesn't feel haunted for a single second. . It's damn serene. . With beautiful view of the Bhanghar village . . And surrounding. . Missed a few places to explore.. will visit again soon..
