Visited with my whole team in Dec'12. We were a pack of 6 and we were very excited to visit Bhnagarh aka The most Haunted Place in India!!

The trip started from Alwar and was frankly a horrible one basis the roads that we drove through as they were in their worst possible condition until we reached the dry Aravali mountains. The scenic beauty was awesome and we were completely astonished to see 3 lakes mid-way to Bhangarh, all very serene - shockingly clean and huge. Finally after reaching Bhangarh our hearts were simply throbbing to face or feel something Paranormal which we couldnt somehow. Though as soon as you step into the fort premises you'd definitely feel a bit uneasy with an inner feeling that something isn't correct somewhere.
While visiting the temples we could see them destroyed in some way or other which definitely was a wrong picture for us.

We hired 1 of the car stand's worker and being a localite we felt that he would know more than anybody else.

He showed and described all places very nicely as he knew them well being present on a daily basis outside the fort.

The fountain which we would feel is a drinking pond at the 1st look has it's own story behind it. Asper the localite the fountain's pond was actually the bathing area for the beautiful queen who stayed in Bhangarh. He asked us if we would like to see the source of the fountain in the forest and we readily agreed. Initially the forest was creepy but we kinda liked the dampness and we finally had a glance of the little stream of water that was coming from the tree roots.

While returning back our BIGGEST adventure showed up without even visiting Sariska. We had an encounter with a leopard (wild animals generally visit the pond in the forest to drink water asper the locals). We literally shouted our guts out and the animal ran into the deeper forest. But this adventure was far more than we could have expected to go through or experience in Bhangarh.

Bhangarh in actuality is a ruined archaeological site with many folklores running around. It seems to be gaining some commercial mileage now a days as buses full of tourists visit this place to feel the spookiness. 2/3 temples dont have any idols in it and you can see monkeys, deers or langurs running around the ruins always. Beautiful architecture i must say in the 3 temples and a must visit too but i dont think any wise and able minded person would like to visit this place in dark night when you are at risk of facing leopards, hyenas or even wolves all through the way and with the worst possible roads going up & down the hills - i wouldnt like to go even if there is something spooky or not.

Overall a great encounter with the leopard and the uneasiness simply vanished when we stepped out of the fort gates.

I was very excited to visit this place, since i had read lot of stories on internet and this place is rated as the most haunted place in India, but my excitement ended as soon as i landed this place. i don't agree completely with the myth about this place. First there are mainly ruins of the town that existed at the time it was capital of Madho singh (Brother of Man Singh, Raja of Jaipur) and not much structure of fort is left now. Second there is no GHOST here ! Stories might have been cooked up, i am not sure. Place looks beautiful in rainy season as it it surrounded by mountains on three sides and you will witness lots of greenery. Since i have seen almost all forts in rajasthan i wont rate this fort much but if are coming Jaipur and don't have time to visit Jodhpur Jaisalmer and Udaipur, you must visit this place else you can just skip it. Basically there are two routes from Jaipur. One is via NH11 and other via SH55. It is around 80km from Jaipur. Ride is bumpy via SH but fun. There is no accommodation or restaurant in the vicinity of fort.I hope this info would be helpful !

The ruins are very desolate and the langurs and other animals there definitely scare you during the night. Although its not allowed to visit there in the night, one can go there during the evening and stay late which is probably the best time.

Ok guys , don't take me wrong but Bhangarh is not at all a haunted or a fearful place as people say or think.

No fear felt at all

Facts:-
1.Bhangarh has a fort which is good to see although some ruins are there.
2.It has 3 temples and one of them has no idols at all as those idols were taken authorities in fear of getting lost.
3.A big ground to relax and chill
4.No shops or eatries available once you enter the fort.
5.Night stay not allowed in the Fort.

How to Reach by road:-
There are two ways to reach by Road:-
1.go thru alwar-thanagarh-bhangarh
2.Go thru alwar-hilly areas-bhangarh (this one is adventurous and has very rough roads)

can go thru car or Biking if you like.
