Bhangarh Fort Main Entrance :
This is the small stairs located on the inside of the Bhangarh fort main entrance. This might serve as a way for guards or troops to go to the upper part of the main entrance. This fort is built at the foot of the hill hence it slants a little following the terrain. This fort is built on a solid defense location with the steep hill on it’s three sides hence it would’ve been hell for it’s enemies to attack it. There are three levels of stairways before you even reach the main door of the fort and the third level of stairway has no steps its just a slanting walkway which can be deadly and dangerous when wet as it’s very slippery.
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.
If you have any of your own theories please do let us know by replying to this post.
