Even when you restrict yourself to believe any village rumor than to make you sure we suggest you go to ASI(Archaeological Survey of India) web site and read about Bhangarh Fort. When any tourist enters the fort there is a big hoarding which clearly states that “No vehicles are permitted to enter the fort beyond this point. Failure to comply with this instruction can have serious legal consequences.” Even there are many protocols that you need to follow one such is there for your vehicles which says that, “It is forbidden to enter borders of the haunted Bhangarh Fort before sunrise and after sunset.”

A long time ago there was a ruler who encountered the throne of Bhangarh Fort, whose name was King Madho Singh, the younger brother of Emperor Akbar’s general called Man Singh. This fort was built with the permission of ascetic Guru Balu Nath who meditated at this place. According to common folklore, the ascetic made the king swear that the fort shadows would not touch his area of meditation. But the king failed to keep up to his promise. As soon as the shadows touched his spot, Guru Balu Nath cursed the village to remain roofless. Even if a roof is built today, it collapses soon after. There is one more story famous about the Bhangarh fort which includes Tantrik Singhia, who fell in love with Princess Ratnavati. He used his black magic to make the princess love him. But the princess got to know of his evil plans and ordered him to get him killed. Before the Tantrik died, he too, cursed the residents of the fort to die and the village dwellers to remain roofless forever. All the warnings by ASI are not based on the rumors but there they researched along with experts. But we tell you that Bhangarh does have ghosts who scream, voices of women crying, sounds of bangles in the rooms, and eerie smells after dusk. Ghostly shadows, strange lights, and unusual sounds of music and dance. There are many youths who have challenged the ghosts of Bhangarh and have not seen it again.
These were the famous folks of Bhangarh but if you want to visit it you can see the details below:
