The fort was built in the foot of the hills on a sloping terrain in the Aravali range of hills, where also the border of Sariska Reserve is located. The King’s palace in the fort is located in the lower slope of the hills and it provides a majestic scenery of ponds surrounded by trees and a natural stream falling directly into the pond inside the areas of the palace.

According to the legends, they say that there was a holy person named Baba Balak Nath that lived in the areas of the fort and it was his order that no other house within the inside areas of Bhangarh should be taller than his house and if the shadows of such houses would fall over his house, the fort shall be cursed and destroyed.
Another story from the folklore says that a black magician in the city once fell in love with a beautiful Bhangarh princess named Ratnavati. One day he followed her to the marketplace in the town and offered her a love potion that he made himself.
Unfortunately the princess declined his offer and threw the bottle into a big boulder which then fell and rolled over the magician, crushing him to death.© Photo Credits: roamingclan.com
