Bhangarh Fort Courtyard :
This is inside Bhangarh fort. We are standing on what used to be the courtyard of Bhangarh fort facing the stairway heading to the first floor. As you will see in subsequent photos that this fort is dilapidated and stones are just lying around everywhere. On the right of this building is a stairway up to the guard tower. What was once a mighty fort has fallen into this and this kind of makes us sad to look at it’s condition now. But then again nothing lasts forever and the end is as sure as the beginning.
So, why did the fort fell ? Well, as we’ve discussed before our theory is that Bhangarh came under heavy “Draught and Famine” maybe due to severe decrease in rain (maybe due to climate change?) intensity and that could cause a severe drop in underground water level.
Looking at the geopolitical level, the king of Bhangarh had three main enemy kingdom surrounding it so when the goings were tough in Bhangarh their enemy must have noticed it and they attacked when Bhangarh was at their weakest.
So there are many possibilities why Bhangarh Fort fell and it’s fun when we go out to search for the real truth. It’s still a mystery and no body knows the real reason. There are still many-many mysteries to uncover in this Bhangarh and I would love another chance to go there again. I would also love to explore the underground passages there in Bhangarh.
Let’s explore what’s inside Bhangarh and experience it for ourselves the ambiance of this once mighty and great fort.
