But that Tantric decided to marry Princess Ratnavati and he kept an eye on every small activity of Ratnavati. One day he saw the princess’s servants buying perfumes for her. The Tantric used his black magic to fascinate that servant, but another servant of the princess saw this tantrik doing this and gave this information to the princess of Ratnavati immediately.

The princess sent some soldiers to kill the tantrik but before the dying, the tantric cursed the entire Bhangarh with the princess.

Due to his curse Princess Rathnavati died a few times, and after some time, the fort of Bhangarh was destroyed. It is said that the spirit of princess Ratnavati revolves around this fort of Bhangarh and prevents people coming in this fort.

It is said that even today, the voice comes with the garrison of armed weapon of arms, crying, screaming, shouting. In today’s time, this fort is the most scary fort of the India.
