Bhangarh-6

Ruins

Taj Mahal was built for love and Bhangarh was ruined for love.

Bhangarh, a place between Jaipur and Alwar in Rajasthan state of India, built in the 17th century by raja Madho Singh, younger brother of Man Singh, a general of Emperor Akbar’s army, is today famous for its ruins where nobody dares to go after dark, as it is said if one goes it will not return back.

As per the legend goes a tantric smitten by the beauty of  princess Ratnawati, tried to win her love ,added  a love potion in her bowl of oil but the angry princess who has seen him mixing something in the bowl threw the it at a wall which collapsed on the tantric and buried him.

Before dying he cursed the kingdom of Bhangarh that the city would be wiped overnight and would never be inhabited again, except for the temples.

Shortly after his death the city was sacked and destroyed in the Bhangarh-Ajabgarh wars.
