THE HAUNTED BHANGARH FORT
Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan, India It is the ruins of a fort city built in the 17th century. Bhangarh Fort consists of fort walls, bazars, royal palaces and numerous temples.Haunting is done by a wizard called Singhia and a princess called Ratnavati who spurned his advances. Legend has it that the enchanted oil he hoped would make her love him turned into a boulder. When she threw it away, it hit and crushed him. But not before he cursed the palace, condemning the inhabitants to death, without any hope of rebirth. Bhangarh Fort is now an archeological site, known as the "House of Ghosts". It is closed between sunset and sunrise with locals convinced that anyone who spends the night amongst the ruins will never be seen again.
