We are playing a little game. We are playing – “What city i am in”

Clue 1 –

Asia’s Most Haunted Place is Here and a Tiger Reserve with 13 tigers also. Can you guess what place is this. Alright you think that could be anything. Let me narrow it down for you. It is situated in RAJASTHAN. So, did you get it ? Now. Now Come on Come on. Think. Ah don’t Google it. IT’S ALWAR. yes ALWAR. If you guessed it right Kudos, your geography teacher will be proud of you. If not  don’t worry you can always go and become An Instagram Model

I am at beautiful alwar. So Far so good. This place is Famous for its Haunted House and Havelis. Heck this is all i need. I was so attracted from the start. Truth to be told i am a scaredy cat. But i have a Unique Bucket list. And one of them happens to be “Staying a night at a haunted Place”. Don’t worry i did not complete the list. Cause well various reason. But that is not the point, the point is i am attracted towards haunted places. And Alwar happens to be one of them.


Location –


Alwar formerly know as Ulwar, located just 150 km south of Delhi and 150 km north of Jaipur, is a city in India’s National Capital Region.  Alwar is a hub of tourism with several forts, lakes, heritage havelis and nature reserves, including the Bhangarh Fort, the Sariska Tiger Reserve and Siliserh lake.


How to reach –


Basically if you are travelling from Delhi ( like me) then all you have to do is take a A/C Bus to Jaipur Which will cost you just 200 INR ( seriously). You see Alwar lies Just 150 km from Delhi and thus a bus to jaipur will drop you right at the Alwar bus Stop ( just tell the driver). And you are hiring a self driving car then you can check the prizes here.


Where to stay –


Now, if you ask me where to stay, then i will recommend you some place with Taxis, Cause this is not a metropolitan city. This area is situated near a national reserve, so it like staying in a forest. So you have to be extra careful. Alwar is not situated just in between Delhi and Jaipur but a little bit further down the road. So. Research the area or the hotel you have booked ( No hostel Accomodation). Now lets go check out the place that i have stayed.


Gulmohar Sariska Resort

Bhangarh Fort


Ah, I am so excited  to tell you about this place. It was spooky, It was Eerie, It was all I imagined it to be. Ah! It was Such a dream come true. You can say i am a little Weird. But this place should be on everyone’s list of travel if you are in India. Then you should check this place out.

OMG. The legend is as spooky as the place. Apparently the princess was very beautiful and the Pandit or a Tantrik fall in love with her and well the story is that the princess turned him down and somehow during that he was crushed ( Literally) on a boulder. Talk about Rejection.

And while he was dying he cursed the whole place to total destruction. And it seems his curse came true in the form of mughal invasion. And so locals says that the  place is haunted by the soul of princess and the Tantrik and not until the princess is reborn and visit the place then the curse will be uplifted.

There is no certain facts anywhere but locals say 2 boys from neighbouring village came to spend the night and never returned. Spooky right


My Review


 I felt like a princess as i entered the premise. I started imagining the time when this place would be at the height of its glory. I mean just imagine that lights gleaming upto a km from the castle. And the castle itself would be drowned in light and also i was told that the royal family use to take elephants to just go out for a stroll. The temple must be covered with gold or something at its glory period. Right and now it is just abandoned. And Haunted moreover.  The view was breathtaking though. I mean like a movie but a horror one. Apparently no one is allowed to stay after sunset as it is said to be the hub of paranormal activity. There is a written warning by the government of India about that.

Sariska National Reserve


Sariska National Reserve is the highlight of the day. If you are my one of the avid reader than you know how much of a big fan i am of the felines, If you are new then I will tell you again “I LOVE CATS”every CAT. The Big one, the small one and the fierce one, the shy ones, the cute ones. I could talk about them all day.

Location –

Sariska Tiger Reserve is a national park and tiger reserve located in the Alwar district of the state of Rajasthan, India. This area was a hunting preserve of the Alwar state and it was declared a wildlife reserve in 1955. It was given the status of a tiger reserve making it a part of India’s Project Tiger in 1978.

So another reason i visited this place was to Cross of another bucket list – “SEE SOME TIGERS”. Yes I have never seen them out the idiot box. Really. I am an avid traveler but this blessings has not been bestowed upon me. So i got another chance cause my first one fails – Jim Corbett .

So these is the place. You curious one. I know looks beautiful right. It was beautiful.

Hey, But unfortunately i had no luck and could not spot any tiger. But i did see spotted antelopes and a giant lizard.

Points to Remember


So,I learned this the hard way, But you don’t have to. These are the tips i am going to give you if you are visiting this beautiful place.

  1. A Good Hat is a must cause the place, it is a like a open ground. And seeing a tiger requires a lot of waiting and sun tan is a real thing.
  2. A water bottle is a another must have item. Cause this place is huge with no refreshments and it does have a toilet but it is not proper.
  3. If you are carrying a carrying a camera there is a additional cost.
  4. Be early in that you can spot a tiger.
