Bhangarh Fort, Alwar

3.7
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.

  • This fort is famous as a haunted place. Honestly I have never ever felt anything like that even after visiting many times. Though it's a good tourist place to visit. Winter's better than summer to visit. Better to go by your own vehicle as local vehicles are hard to find. This is located in a remote village.
  • I'm going to start off by saying that its not a haunted place at all, even after the 6 o'clock period - I honestly don't see what all the media frenzy is about. It is thus fair to say that anyone who comes here for the sole intention of finding any means of paranormal activity would not find the visit enjoyable. I say this with experience. Rather, those who come to visit for the sake of exploring the rich and dynamic history of the area as well as viewing the exotic archaeological remains of this fort would find the trip enjoying. The lush greenery along with amazingly carved statues - that are, by the way, still in reasonable condition- truly make this landmark worth every second of your time. Not only this, but the site is filled with a variety of creatures that add to its authenticity. Monkeys, wild dingoes and cobras are abundant. Overall, a 5/5 experience.
  • Ruins of a good old fort. One should avoid visiting this place in summer season. Some of the spots reminds the ruins of Roman Coliseum. Not huge crowds when compared to beauty of this place. You can spend couple of hours easily. Lot of small rooms inside which should not be missed.
  • Keep the Haunted Stories aside this place offers a lot more. Someone interested in History, culture, archeology and mythology must visit the fort. Best time to visit can be in the Rainy season as the hills all around are lush green. If you are visiting on a dry day, do not forget to carry a bottle of water with you. The Fort is in ruins today but strangely the Temples are as good as they were built. Ruins all around are remains of historic city that used to populate this place more than 300 years ago (as of 2018). As a visitor you are bound to see many Monkeys on your visit and the forest to the left side of the fort is inhabited by various varieties of birds. Peacocks and cows are also found in abundance. Get on the topside of the main fort to get a good 200 degree view of the old ruins and hills in the distance. If you are walking inside the jungle, do not do it alone at any cost, It's recommended to hire a guide unless there are 4-5 people in your group. On the right side of the fort is a small trek of 40 minutes to the top of the hill. It is said the evil Tantric used to pray at this spot only. A whole day is sufficient for the place. The gardens are beautiful and give you the Vibes of an Era of Royalty.
  • Beauty of a location in Rajasthan! Totally worth the visit. I visited during the day. It is a huge fort complex with ruins of a huge market place, followed by the fort itself which is quite large and completely built of rocks. It takes about 3-4 hours to roam around the complex and enjoy the beauty. The place is said to be haunted and one is not allowed to enter after 6PM. But you can enter before that and stay there if you choose to. The fort is surrounded by the stunning landscape, full of greenery. There is also a healthy stream of water flowing right beside the fort inside the complex. There are monkeys in the fort, so be careful if you carry food or any other belongings. Fantastic photo spot and a nice place to visit. The drive from Jaipur to Bhangarh is amazing and full of greenery on all sides, with a good highway for most of the distance. Must visit. Suitable for solo travelers as well.
