Darr ke aagey Jeet hai"
It took us 274 Km. and around 7 hours of adventure filled travel time to reach the fantasyland. That's the entrance, no doubt India knows how to welcome the guests:
There are a few stories behind the present state of this fort, however the elderlies in this area agree to the curse by a magician who had developed a liking for royal princess.
Once servant of the princess was buying oil in the market, the magician saw this and put a charm on the oil. However princess was also a magician, came to know this and decoded the charm and threw the bottle on a nearby mountain. The oil bottle got transformed into a rock and killed the magician with its impact on his head. Magician before dying put a curse that everyone in this kingdom will die in a night and thier souls will never leave this place. It is believed that all souls come down into the fort area at night. It is natural human psychology to associate ourselves with the history, no doubt even blowing winds looks like work of the ghosts.
If we go back in the history lane, we will find that entrance to all the major cities in India started with the market. Same trend has been followed in Bhangarh too, one if felicitated by beautifully placed shops on both sides of the walking street. I am also trying to explore the charisma of those times and how they would have marketed from the shops.
It is our duty to preserve this grand heritage and memories of our ancestors intact and in its full glory.
After temple we decided to go upstairs and take an aerial view of this place. Each step on the stairs was taking us close the glorious past of this place, and the rich history of our great country. Beauty and magnificence has been spread all over this place. Well crafted palaces, artistically placed gardens. Check out yourself:
However our plans were quashed by Archaeological Survey of India, which prohibits staying inside the fort area after sunset and before sunrise. Locals say whoever has tried to stay inside after sunset was never found.Like all other tourists, we also left the place before sunset with many questions remaining still unanswered in our minds.
