Bhangarh is a place between Jaipur and Alwar in Rajasthan state of India. Bhangarh is known for it’s ruins,and it’s interesting to note that entry to this “Ghost town” is legally prohibited between sunset and sunrise. In accordance with a fable, Bhangarh city was cursed by “Guru Balu Nath” who authorized the construction of the city on a major stipulation: “If the shadows of your fortress touch the prohibited area, the entire Bhangarh city will be destroyed!”. Since Ajab Singh (the grandson of Madho Singh) built a palace in such a way that the shadow of the palace reached the prohibited area, the place was cursed by Guru Balu Nath. As a result, the entire town of Bhangarh was damaged and ruined. Guru Balu Nath is believed to be resting in the same place till now in his Samadhi. Bhangarh township was established by a royal leader ‘Madho Singh’ who was the younger brother of a Mughal ruler, ‘Man Singh of Amber’.
