The Bhangarh fort in Rajasthan was built by King Madho Singh, the younger brother of Emperor Akbar’s general called Man Singh. It was built after getting approval from ascetic Guru Balu Nath who meditated at this place. According to common folklore, the ascetic made the king swear that the fort shadows would not touch his area of meditation. But the king failed to keep up to his promise. As soon as the shadows touched his spot, Guru Balu Nath cursed the village to remain roofless. Even if a roof is built today, it collapses soon after.
