Here, I resonated with what the locals had to say that it is a Bhoot Bangla. Well, I was very curious to know if something mysterious is coming my way. Apart from that superior feeling, I really got chills down my spine while entering this ruined fort. Those silent walls, looked like they were coming close to me with screaming mouth. Definitely was scary! But, no matter what, the curiosity was bigger than fear.

The amazing thing was the history of the place. Well, I don’t want to ruin your curiosity. You will love to dig the history on your own. This popular yet decaying fort was not like that in the 17th century. Built in Indian architecture style, it included temples, palaces, and Havelis. The fort was built by Man Singh I for his grandson Bhan Singh I. after the death of Man Singh I, the fort was named after Bhansingh I. This probably is the reason, this region is also called Bhangarh in Alwar district of Rajasthan. Ghost stories were amazing. Raat ko Man Singh ghumte hain haveli mein
