BHANGARH

Bhangarh’s ruins are well worth a visit. The place is beautiful and tranquil, though what remains is a shadow of a once beautiful kingdom with a famous market.

 

Bhangarh 50 Kms. away from Sariska sanctuary lies the splendid medieval town of Bhangarh. Built in the 17th century by Raja Madho Singh, brother of Raja Man Singh of Amber, it has medieval bazaars and an old palace. Bhangarh’s Someshwar and Gopinath Temples have some fine carvings. According to legend, the town was cursed by an evil magician and was abandoned. The evil effect of the curse is believed by the locals to be working even now.
