Bhangarh Fort, India
The Bhangarh Fort is a 17th-century fort built in the Rajasthan state of India. According to one popular folk tale, a wizard adept in black magic named N.K. Sinhai fell in love with Ratnavati, a beautiful Bhangarh princess with many suitors. One day, the wizard followed her to the marketplace and offered her a love potion, however she refused it, throwing it onto a large boulder that consequently rolled onto the wizard and crushed him to death. Before dying, the wizard cursed that the fort would be destroyed and become uninhabitable in the time to come.
True to the wizard’s curse, the fort was invaded by the Mughals, who killed all the inhabitants including the princess. Due to its creepy reputation, tourists are forbidden to enter the fort after sunset as it is believed that no one will be able to return if they enter the place at night.
