Bhangarh once famous for its town planning and systematic layout of temples and markets is lying in ruins now. But the ruins speak for itself the tale of the city that was so well planned and systematic even in those times. This city was founded in 1631 by Madho Singh who was the younger brother of Man Singh of Ajmer and was later abandoned for reasons unknown.
Town is very famous as one of the most haunted places in India. Legend has it that whenever a house is built in the area its roof collapses. Villagers say that anybody who stays there after dark does not return from the ruins. Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has put a sign board which says, "Staying after sunset is strictly prohibited in this area."
