Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan, India

This 17th century fort is nicknamed India’s most haunted location. One of the legends speaks of a forsaken black magic tantric who cursed the people residing within the fort to death and for the fort to be inhabitable. After the curse, enemies invaded the fort and killed everyone within it. Located on the hillside in a deserted town, Bhangarh Fort has become a popular tourist spot due to the legends tied to it. By day, the fort appears to be a beautiful and serene landmark. But by dusk, visitors are banned from staying in the premises.
The Archaeological Survey of India has even placed an unconventional notice mentioned by the government in the fort stating that it is haunted and entrance is prohibited after sunset. People who have actually tried entering after sunset said that they found themselves in the middle of nowhere when they woke up in the morning with no recollection of the previous night’s events. Locals believe that adventure junkies who attempt to have slumber parties at the fort will be trapped there forever.
