“Haunted” Places In And Around Udaipur

The other beauty of Udaipur

It is widely believed that violent deaths leave everlasting imprints on the places they occurred. Violence is a crime that never leaves its spectators in peace, imagine what it does upon whom it was inflicted. Places that have the most scenic beauty in the day, manage to look scariest at night. Or maybe it’s how people perceive beauty. It’s really the difference in judgment that makes someone haunted or just a soul desperate for help. Judge for yourselves as you read about the “haunted” places in Udaipur.

Udaipur is at peak of the list that holds the names of the world’s most beautiful cities. It’s not just beautiful, it’s ridden with rumors about horrors of the dark. When the black ink splashes across the sky and the moon has circled to its throne, the night lets out a fierce breath, as a representation of what frightens mere mortals.  

Sajjangarh Fort (The monsoon palace)

Forts have a way of becoming absorptive as they live for centuries. They start to drink all that happens inside their walls, as is called its history. The underground level of the fort is said to be one of the haunted places of Udaipur. Now, it’s kept locked after complaints arising from an unknown presence that people felt while exploring the stories of this palace. How ironic, as this palace was constructed for the sole purpose of rejoicing in nature.

Chittorgarh Fort

This particular fort has screams of women flowing through its walls. The heat still arises from that depression in the floor where 700 women jumped in the protection of their honor. Folks believe that Devi Padmini still roams within these halls. It truly has the most terrifying story of women fighting for their honor. Be careful as you go in, you might get the realization of the force of nature.

Gulab Bagh

The thing that is in abundance here is breathable air. You might need it more, as you walk in these gardens at night thinking about its history of painful exorcisms. It’s said that some of the worshipping places nearby Gulab Bagh performed exorcisms on possessed people. As the entity is forced out of a human, it looked for another living flesh to take over. Wander here at night, if the mind has been too quiet a while.

Chandani Village

23 km away from Udaipur, Chandani Village echoes with the pains of a woman who roams around crying when the earth has circled away from the warmth of the sun. The villagers have often warned people to stay away as this woman is too difficult to understand. This village has a river flowing through it and the scenery is exceedingly magical. Visit, if you miss the beauty of the wilderness.

Bedla Mata Temple

According to the locals and local tales, it’s a belief that when you enter the miraculous cave where the Goddess is said to draw away evil spirits, you will be asked not to look back.

Natni ka Chabutra

There was a woman who was challenged by Maharana Jawan Singh. She was told that if she walked on the rope tied from one end of the lake to another, the King would grant her half of his kingdom. She was gifted at walking on ropes. As she was about to be victorious, the King ordered to cut the rope from his end. She fell and succumbed to death in the lake, but not before placing a curse on the royalty. It’s often said that, when a human dies with revenge in their heart, they never leave. It’s believed that the rope-walking woman still lingers in the lake that drowned her. 

NH 79 Ajmer

According to the lore, the woman was running from the villagers who had decided to throw her child into the bounds of marriage. She was against it and ran towards the open road. Both she and her child died after meeting with an accident that night.

Legend says that once upon a time there was a king named Maharana Jawan Singh, in city palace who assured a Natni (tightrope walker who performs various dance and activities on a rope in the air) that he would gift her half of his kingdom if she will cross the rope tied from a village on the west bank of the lake to the City Palace on the east bank.

Bedla Mata is a Hindu temple situated at Bedla road in Udaipur. It is said that the goddess of this temple takes away the ghost of people when you visit the temple and do some ritual which is to go under a shallow cave made of stones for three times. It is also said that when you return from the temple, do not look back and if you do all the ghosts that people left there will come right behind you. Scared already?


Badi Lake 

There are so many Udaipurites who have different ghost stories when it comes to Badi Lake. Well, I will start with one. There was this group of 4-5 people who were on a night out and went to Badi Lake. When they were returning from there at some time around 10:00 pm, they heard a loud voice and at that very instant when they looked on the road, some unrecognizable figure crossed the road.

While night outs are all fun and frolic, such incidents make us think about it again.

People say that whoever swimming in the water of Lake Fatehsagar after heavy rains get pulled by some energy inside the water and don’t let them swim across the surface causing death.
