    Bhanghar- Our trip to a place that’s counted in India’s most haunted place list

    It was an amazing day for us as we just got over with our exams, we is my group of 4 friends I stay with, returned from college and were getting bored. The best thing one can do while sitting in a room and getting bored is to surf internet, and just for fun we searched “a walk through the most haunted place in India” on Google…clicked the very first link which said something like 78mm Adventures and what we found was a place names Bhanghar, a place just 130kms away from where we were standing n that’s it…we decided to plan a trip.

    The 4 friends I was staying with were:

    1. Atul

    2. Avinash

    3. Varun

    4. Argha(that’s me aka scilent killer)

    The place demanded a bigger group so we finalized to go in a group of 8 guys, then made 4 phone calls and just got one answer….DEFINATELY YES, when r we leaving…n all we could say was “come to our place rite now”…and that added 4 other names

    5. Prateek

    6. Pervinder

    7. Charchit

    8. Ashish

    At about 2 o’clock we were 8 guys at my place, the plan clicked us at 12:30 PM and by 2:00 we were ready with the map from Google, general information for the path we will take n our bike papers (Varun was fined that morning only for being without pollution so he was the only one to rush for the pollution certificate).

    We packed some bottles (nothing else but water), filled the tanks and were out ripping the road to our destination.

    Somebody had said it very correctly that empty mind is devil’s home and that can be seen in our reasons why we went there:

    1. The place was on most haunted place list

    2. It was on Google

    3. Was a place which could be covered on bikes

    The distance from Jaipur is about 130kms out of which 90kms is highway stretch and after that the off-roading starts; Dosa by-pass is the place from where the way to Bhanghar cuts. We were on 4 bikes (Gladiator, Karizma, Pulsar and Splender), we maintained a constant of 70kmph to be with the splender, as soon as the highway ended at Dosa by-pass we got some broken and some jerky roads but with finely built twists and turns to ride on.

    By the time we reached there it was already 7 o’clock, and as we were about to enter after parking our bikes we were shown this….







    We asked the guard if by any means if he could let us go in but said no….after lot of convincing he said “he cannot help at that time but once the security check is done he can let us go but we have to hide our bikes a bit away from the gate” we asked if by any mean we could go in and on that we got to know that there’s another way….actually the fort is walled but the wall boundary is not complete, it just cover the front half. We started our bikes and went back a few kms to get some information from the village we last crossed, suggestions we got were; go in the fort at about 3 or 4 and they will let u in and you guys can feel all the ghostly things. We checked the time and it was 11:30 so we all decided to go deep on the road…in hope to find the gate wall ending.





    Lost my number plate,don't know how....

    Driving in the pitch black was quite difficult, and forget the photo sessions we just took one photograph; camera even at night mode failed to make enough light to capture.


    While we were in the village we were told many stories and by this time we started to feel that some of them are true....as told we can see the white misty fog lines on the mountain edges which represents that the ghosts were out in the night and warning you to leave there territory.
    That reminds me of the events that have already happened to warn such things:
    1. My bike was missing the number plate (gladiator; pic. already displayed above)
    2. Pulsar lost its kicker
    And when we were cruising towards the deep suddenly the lights of the karizma were dead, we all stopped and checked and what we found kept us all with open mouths; the circuit fuse was missing luckily he was having an extra fuse so the lights were back and then what we noticed was again a shock for us…any meter was not working; rpm, speedo n not even the digital display….
    After we digested the above special effects of Bhanghar we all decided to go to a temple first…n that made us ride another 15-20kms to “Sarsa Mata Temple”
    Some pic.s…..










    After our visit to the temple we quickly came back to Bhanghar fort and went in…..
    Riding back to bhanghar we clicked....





    As we took the initial 15-20 steps we noticed something….










    The building architecture was as it was but the only thing missing were the roofs, the walls were strong as we climbed on those to confirm but that kept us wondering that how only the roofs went missing….then a joke was cracked “if your number plate, my kicker and his circuit fuse can go missing when we were just coming to this place then what’s the big deal with roofs..the building were already here” and with that we all busted to hahahahahahaha…leaving the jokes apart and asked a pundit and got to hear a story again(an interesting one)…*if interested just write me I will narrate the story…
    Moving forward towards the fort we saw an uphill post like structure and none going towards that so we decided to do some trekking and check what it exactly was…


    see the top edges u will be able to locate a structure...

    dividing in the group of 5 and 3 we started the trekking, and didn’t felt anything that’s not natural….reached the top n got reunited and got informed that a dog also trekked with them. Seeing the dog we were surprised again as it was a green color dog with green eyes…; personally I was more scared than getting surprised so havn’t clicked any pic.s of that dog, we rested there for a while and started our way down with the dog off course and to be surprised again when we all got down and searched for the dog we were unable to find it and later consulting the same pundit ji with whom we talked above got to know that dog is Kal Bharav’s (god of death) carrier and that dog saved us from some sprit that was up there. We again got scared hearing this.











    the way we trekked up and w ent down.....
    Finally we went to the fort and luckily this time there were not many things that scared us as we did a fast drive through the corridors and ran outside. Though we experienced a few things in the fort also like sounds of whispering that happened to me when I was trekking my way down also (we checked for someone else but found none)….many be we were getting effected by the stories by that time.



    After that we rested for some time in the shades of the date trees and finally opened our bag of eatables and again had some ghostly talks; this time it was much less scaring as its was day time and we were preety confident that ghosts would have be sleeping by this time...after all night of riding and eating junk food the mathi and lassi that we carried was tasting awesome(reason being our stomachs were making sounds due to hunger) and then we road our way back to home.



    Some randomly clicked pictures that were missed or say couldn't be explained if done will take an entire new post....





    guys its a must visit place....though we all were scared but all in all we had a blast there.......

        Lovely writeup and pics mate! You guys must've had a lotta fun there. Im glad you'll didnt try one of those tricks/games to arouse the spirits.
        The zma meter console starts acting weird when the main fuse(square black one in the harness close to the batt) fuses. This has happened many times on my zma's.

                Is that place worth going from Mumbai?
                I mean me and Anup were indeed planning to do a Rajasthan Part 2 covering this etc?

                Doesnt looks anything worthwhile...

                PS: Lidless pics are not cool...
                PPS: I could never see more than 3 lids..

                  if you are planning to visit that place specifically then it may not be that much fun...
                  i would suggest to group up some places with it....but yes i must say that this place is a must visit if anyone thinks that he is not scared of ghosts....night stay in the fort or the village is a must to feel the proper ghostly effects....

                    Satyen, the old Aravali range holds a lot of promise for a visitor though even in peak winter, the place can give you hot afternoons. Alwar region has a lot to offer. Alwar Fort, Siliserh lake, Sariska National Park, Kali Ghati and Kankwari Fort where Aurangzed imprisoned his brother Dara Shikoh, Pandupol Temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the temple town of Neelkanth apart from the City Palace and Museum at Alwar that holds such intriguing items as a dining table made of solid silver and a 73 mtr long scroll depicting the Mahabharata in all its splendour.

                    Don't be surprised if I say I didn't need wiki for knowing all this. Did a well researched feature for a couple of travel magazines long back when I used to do such articles. This is what I wrote for Bhangarh then:

                    "Some 55km from Alwar and on the outskirts of the sanctuary lies the ghost town of Bhangarh. Established in 1631 by Madho Singh, the brother of Man Singh, then a General in Akbar's army, it was a city of some 10,000 dwellings in its heyday. Some 300 years ago, supposedly after it was cursed by a magician, it was abandoned. The gloom of emptiness seeps within as I hear only the faint rustling of dry leaves flitting across what appears to be a bustling market street once, carried on their wild whirling journey by a little dust-devil. The stillness of abandonment and that of death appears the same. Silent."

                    I would recommend the area for a thorough look-see any day....but make sure you make that day in winters .

                        Woah! Thanks! OF sir!
                        The plan is to see the other half of Rajasthan, and most liikely would be in the winters itself! Anup always knew about the place and when we were at Kuldhra everyone would mistake it and tell the stories of Bhangarh...
                        This trip would broadly be Mt Abu - Ajmer - Jaipur - Bhangarh - Delhi -Agra and back.. !
