History of Bhangarh Fort

If we talk about the history of this fort, we come to know that the fort of Bhangarh was built by Raja Bhagwant Das in 1573 AD, which was later made his capital by his son and brother of Raja Mansingh, Madho Singh.

It is noteworthy that Madho Singh was Diwan in the court of Mughal emperor Akbar. After Madho Singh, his son Chhatar Singh took over the reins of this place. After him, his son Ajab Singh took over the throne.

Due to shortage of water in Bhangarh area, Ajab Singh built a fort named Ajabgarh at a distance of a few kilometers from here. Adequate water was available in this area. Ajab Singh made Ajabgarh his residence instead of Bhangarh.

Due to the increasing influence of the Mughals, later the rulers here changed from Rajput to Muslims, in which Mohammad Kulin took over the power of Bhangarh and Mohammad Dalhij took over the power of Ajabgarh.

Jai Singh, the ruler of Amer, attacked Bhangarh and Ajabgarh in 1720 AD and made it a part of the Amer state. In this war, both the Muslim rulers of Bhangarh and Ajabgarh were killed.

Stories behind the destruction of Bhangarh Fort

Three stories are very famous behind the destruction of Bhangarh. Further, all three stories are told one after the other.

First story behind the destruction of Bhangarh Fort

According to the first story, the princess Ratnavati here was very beautiful. Apart from being beautiful, she was also knowledgeable in occult sciences.

A Tantrik named Sindhu Sevda alias Singhiya became fascinated with this princess and started making various efforts to get the princess. When all his efforts failed, he decided to get the princess through Tantra Sadhana.

For this purpose, one day he somehow gave the promised perfume to the maid who had gone to the market to buy perfume for the princess.

When the maid gave that consecrated perfume to the princess, the princess understood that this perfume was consecrated by the Vashikaran mantra.

The princess used that perfume on a stone due to which the stone started moving towards the Tantrik and crushed it to death.

While dying, the Tantrik cursed Bhangarh to never be inhabited, as a result of which the city was destroyed that very night.

Second story behind the destruction of Bhangarh Fort

According to another story, a saint named Balunath lived here. When the fort of Bhangarh was built, he had warned the king that the height of the fort should never be so high that his penance place would be covered in its shadow, if this happened then the city would be destroyed.

Later, the kings did not pay heed to the sage's advice and increased the height of the fort so much that the penance place of Balunath was covered in the shadow of the fort. Bhangarh was destroyed due to the sage's wise words.

Third story behind the destruction of Bhangarh Fort

According to the third one, in 1720, Raja Jai Singh of Amer defeated the Muslim ruler of Bhangarh and established his control over it.

There was always a shortage of water here and due to a severe famine in the year 1783, this fort was completely destroyed.

If the nearby people are to be believed, then out of the above three stories, the one about the Tantrik's curse is believed to be true and the Tantrik's curse is also believed to be the reason behind the destruction of Bhangarh.

Some people believe that the souls of those who died untimely death due to the curse still wander in the ruins of Bhangarh.
