just 90kms away from jaipur is bhangarh - a ruined town in the alwar district of the state of rajasthan, india, most famous for its historical ruins. the place is said to be haunted. archaeological survey of india (asi) has put up a signboard by the main gate stating (among others): "entering the borders of bhangarh before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited." the reason for this may be that there can be wild animals and it could be unsafe because there is no artificial lighting. for the more adventurous ones, legend has it - "no one entering this town after sunset has ever returned back." many stories can be heard on why and how the settlement was abandoned by the people overnight and the town now lays bare. bhangarh was established in 1573 (vs 1631) and is at the edge of the sariska tiger reserve.
