As we drove up to the fortress of Bhangarh fort in Alwar region of Rajasthan, from the Sariska Tiger Reserve, we go by the Ajabgarh post. Since passage into Bhangarh fort is confined after dusk, we were in a rush. I didn’t move up the Ajabgarh fortress, however I investigated its base. A nearby fellow touching sheep disclosed to me that there was nothing that I would have the capacity to see from beneath aside from the four dividers. On the off chance that I had known its noteworthiness in the fate of the stronghold I was going to, I would have tried.
The drive to Bhangarh fort post was spooky. We went through a town that was apparently possessed. The principle street was fixed with the remnants of once-excellent havelis. Kids were situated before unpredictably cut wooden entryways that had substantial rusted locks.
The Bhangarh fortification was worked by the Kachwaha leader of Amber, Raja Bhagwant Singh, for his more youthful child Madho Singh in 1573 AD. Madho Singh’s sibling was the observed Man Singh, who was Akbar’s general. Madho Singh was prevailing by his child Chatr Singh. It was Chatr Singh’s child Ajab Singh who constructed the post of Ajabgarh.
Despite the fact that it was early afternoon, it appeared to be very forlorn, and a long walk, so we enlisted a neighborhood direct. Aides after all tell the most bright stories and amazing tattle!
A tantrik’s revile
The guide let us know of the wonderful princess Ratnavati, who was the girl of Chatr Singh. She was the gem of Rajasthan. Ratnavati was considerably more youthful than her stepbrother Ajab Singh, and was as generally loved as he was loathed. Stories of her magnificence and awesome demeanor spread far and wide and she got numerous propositions to be engaged. A tantrik cleric, who was knowledgeable in dark enchantment, experienced passionate feelings for her. In any case, realizing that he didn’t stand a shot with the lovely princess, he attempted to do magic on her. Seeing the princess’ house keeper purchasing scent for her in the town, he enchant it so Ratnavati would experience passionate feelings for him. Ratnavati came to know about this and tossed the container. It transformed into a stone and hit the tantrik. He was pounded under its weight, yet before he passed on, he reviled the princess, her family, and the whole town. The following year, a fight was battled between the powers of Bhangarh fort and Ajabgarh, which prompted the demise of Ratnavati and the vast majority of the armed force.
The guide gravely revealed to us that it was because of this revile nobody in the town or post could be reawakened; it is always sentenced to devastation and is possessed by phantoms. On the off chance that any villager attempts to construct a rooftop, it clearly bafflingly falls.
We were recounted another story as well. Clearly there was a sadhu, Guru Balu Nath, living over the slope on which Raja Bhagwant Singh fabricated the fortress. His solitary condition for giving the fortress a chance to be worked there was that it should never cast a shadow on his abode. This condition was respected by all with the exception of Ajab Singh, who added segments to the post that cast a shadow on the self-denying’s home. The irate sadhu’s revile prompted the demolish of the stronghold and the encompassing towns. A little stone hovel, known as tantrik ki chatri, disregards the fortress.
Reality is by all accounts that after Chatr Singh’s demise, since Ajab Singh had officially settled another post, the number of inhabitants in the region dwindled. A starvation in 1783 constrained the rest of the villagers to look for new roads. In 1720, Raja Jai Singh, grandson of Man Singh, connected Bhangarh to his bequest.
Inside the fortification
When we were entertained with these stories, we had strolled through a lengthy, difficult experience fixed on the two sides with ruins. These were the jauhri bazaars, places of moving young ladies (Nachni ki Haveli), the guide said. There were likewise some great banyan trees. We entered the noteworthy passage to see the fortress. Despite the fact that the post was in ruins, it had three thousand stories to be investigated. The Someshwara sanctuary along the edge, with its lovely stepwell, was quiet. We offered our regards there before moving up to the stronghold. The means and the highest point of the stronghold are covered with broken sections, stones, and a pitiful looking cut specialty, which maybe held Ratnavati’s toilette. The dividers inside the sanctuary are flawless.
Passage into Bhangarh is disallowed amongst dusk and dawn. It is positioned the most frequented fortification in India. In any case, the neighborhood monitors denied having ever observed any paranormal movement there.
I don’t know whether the post is spooky, yet it really merits the title of hauntingly wonderful.
