    Distance :84km from Alwar
    Distance :170km from Delhi

    Bhangarh was once a flourishing town of 10,000 homes. That was in the 17th century when it was built by Raja Madho Singh, the illustrious Man Singh I's brother (Man Singh was one of the nine gems in Akbar's court, remember? See History of Amber for more). But it's all gone now; only splendid ruins remain. According to prevalent tales, the town was cursed by an evil magician and had to be abandoned. The fear still looms large in the minds of the locals, for they tread the soil of Bhangarh cautiously.

    Most of Bhangarh is in ruins. Crumbling temples, walls and pavilions standing against the silent wilderness of forested hills scream out about the town's ancient prosperity. The ruins of the arches and colonnades, built on various levels, suggest that it was once quite an elaborate complex. Portions like a pavilion and a minaret on a mound are somewhat intact. The site seems the perfect place to pack a picnic lunch and retire to.
    The recently restored evocative medieval bazaar is a truly fascinating experience. Nearby is the finely carved Someshwar Temple. The temple tank is still used by villagers to bathe and wash. There's also the Temple of Gopinath which has carved pillars and a corbeled cupola. Another fascinating monument of Bhangarh is the Randiyon ka Mahal (Palace of Prostitutes). Its unusual name probably comes from female courtesans for whom the palace was built. In those days female court attendants were also taken from harems of rulers. Overall, Bhangarh makes an exciting trip.

    Update: Me and Parminder visited Bhangarh recently and I have posted a thread about our trip to Bhangarh on India travel forum.
