Kuldhara Village

Amongst the most Haunted Places in Rajasthan, the abandoned Kuldhara Village has a strange, yet very spooky story to tell. The village is said to have been cursed since the 1800s. A minister wanted to forcefully marry a beautiful girl in the village.

Instead of submitting to him, the villagers left their ancestral home and vanished. However, they put a curse on Kuldhara that no one can ever live or breed on this land. Some people who have tried to stay there at night also say that they have been chased away by a strange paranormal phenomenon.

Location: Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.

Bhangarh Fort

One of the top Haunted Places in Rajasthan is the infamous Bhangarh Fort. Considered to be amongst the most haunted places in the country, the fort has different stories attached to it.

A common legend suggests that a sadhu fell in love with Princess Ratnavati, and wanted to marry her. One day, he offered her a love potion which she threw onto a large rock. The rock then rolled onto the sadhu, crushing him to death. On a visit to Bhangarh Fort, you can encounter a tantric’s ghost, hear a woman crying for help, or even the clinking of bangles.

Brij Raj Bhawan Palace

Located in Kota, the Brij Raj Bhawan Palace, now a heritage hotel, is the most haunted place in the region. It is said to be haunted by the spirit of an English soldier Major Burton. He used to be an employee of the East India Company, and was killed along with his family during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.

It is said that the bodies of Major Burton and his family are buried in the central hall of the palace. Locals suggest that the Major’s ghost still wanders around in the palace, hitting the security guards here.

Location: Brijraj Bhawan Palace Hotel, Civil Line, Nayapura, Kota, Rajasthan 324001.

Rana Kumbha Palace

Another one of the most Haunted Places in Rajasthan is the Rana Kumbha Palace of Chittorgarh. It is also said to be the scariest place in the region, with secret chambers where one can hear screams of women and children.

The legend here suggests that when Alauddin Khilji attacked the fort and defeated Rana Rattan Singh, his queen, Rani Padmini, along with thousands of other women, performed the act of Jauhar here. Some instances also state that you can see the ghost of a lady in royal attire with a burnt face asking for help in the palace.

Location: Chittorgarh Fort Village, Chittorgarh, Rajasthan 312001.

Chand Baori

This is a stepwell located in the village of Abhaneri in Rajasthan. Although a majestic piece of architecture, it has a reputation of being one of the most haunted places in the state. Believed to be the deepest stepwell in the whole world, with over 3500 steps, Chand Baori, according to the locals, is said to have been built by ghosts in just a single night.

Legends suggest that the stepwell is haunted by a djinn, who will not let you climb up the same stairs which you used to go down the stepwell.

Location: Abhaneri, Rajasthan.


Located on the Pushkar bypass, Sudhabay is yet another one of the Haunted Places in Rajasthan. A Ghost Fair is held here every year, and it is during this time when Sudhabay, an ancient well, becomes quite spooky. People from all over India come here on this day and perform exorcisms to get rid of evil spirits which have possessed them or their near and dear ones.

On this day, mass exorcisms are a common phenomenon here, which means that quite a lot of people even get possessed here. This is a place which will surely give you nightmares.

Location: Pushkar Bypass, Nedaliya, Rajasthan 305022.

NH-79 Near Dudu Village

This highway is commonly known as the “road that asks for blood.” NH-79, also known as the Ajmer-Udaipur highway, is one of the most haunted places in Udaipur. It is located in close proximity to Dudu Village, which is an old hamlet with a lot of paranormal stories and activities associated with it.

The legend of NH-79 revolves around a lady and her baby, who are said to have been killed on this very road. The lady was running away with her baby from Dudu Village to stop her from being married off when they were both killed by an oncoming vehicle.  While driving down the highway, you might encounter the ghost of a woman carrying a baby in her arms who then vanishes before your eyes.

Location: NH-79, Dudu Village, Rajasthan.

Delhi Jaipur Highway

Another one of the extremely Haunted Places in Rajasthan, the Delhi-Jaipur Highway has an array of ghost stories associated with it. It is said that the highway is haunted by the spirit of a lady who died here. People passing through the highway during the night might suddenly feel dizzy. Some records even suggest that people have seen apparitions and heard screams as well.

Many people have reported seeing a woman in a red saree and bangles, or hearing the sound of anklets (payal) on the highway.

I am so glad to share my thrillophilia reviews of Udaipur Trip.It was a wonderful experience for the day. Driver was quite polite and took us to all the places mentioned in the tour guide. Even the tour organiser was quite helpful in arranging the cab as it was a last minute booking. This trip will be remembered for a long time and will surely recommend it to others (infact already recommended)

It is a great deal. Beautiful place to stay. Owner Mr. Mahaveer is very humble and helpful person. Food was tasty & ample. The provided unlimited mineral water for us as and when required. Camel safari was also good & enjoyable. We enjoyed true Rajasthani folk cultural program at night. It was diwali on that particular day. They had arranged some in-house fireworks. Dark starlit sky, campfire, fireworks, folk music & wines - the whole ambiance was ecstatic. Overall a very good & comfortable stay. Only thing I would like to remind you that the region where the camp is located is named Osiyan. Here, you won't find complete desert like Jaisalmer. It is more like a terrain covered with thorny bush. Sand dunes are limited though the camel will take you to a nearby one. But, it's not a fault of owner. You will get compensated with their warm & humble hospitality.
"Desert camping in Jaisalmer remains highlights of your memories ????\nNice Food, Places, Scenic place..\n"

Had a good time at the resort. Services and food were also good.

It includes only Camel ride and no Desert safari by Jeep. I had to pay 1200 more for 2 people for Desert safari by Jeep. The dinner was OKish. Camel ride was very good, on requesting he took us twice with just 50Rs. tip. There is an option to go for ATV ride also there @600 per person for a small round :P . But it was fun overall and I enjoyed it.
