Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan-

Said to be the spookiest fort in India, Bhangarh Fort is said to be cursed by a tantrik (magician) named Singhia. History reveals that the magician was deeply in love with Ratnavati, the princess of Bhangarh. When one day Singhia saw the princess’s maid in the market, he used his black magic on the oil she was purchasing so that upon touching it the princess would surrender herself and run to him. The princess, however, seeing the tantric enchanting the oil, foiled his plan by pouring it on the ground. As the oil struck the ground it turned into a boulder, which crushed Singhia. Dying, the magician cursed the palace with the death of all who dwelt in it.  After a year, a war took place between Ajabgarh and Bhangarh, ruining the fort completely. For someone getting lost in the fort after sunset, there is no turning back. Locals say that you need to have a strong heart to take a tour of the area. The once prospering town of Bhangarh is now feared! Throughout your experience inside Bhangarh, you will get the feeling of someone following you.

A signboard by Archaeological Survey of India is put up saying ,”Entering the borders of Bhangarh before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited.” It is the topmost haunted place in India.
