1. A sadhu named Baba Balau Nath lived in the fort. He gave such an order that all houses built within the boundaries of the fort should not be larger than his house, and if the shadow of such a house fell on his house, this would result in the destruction of the fortified city. When a descendant prince lifts the palace to a height that casts a shadow over the house of Sadhu, it is said that he cursed the whole city. Then the whole city and the fort were destroyed by the wise curse. The locals believe that the fort is still cursed.

2. There was a magician named N.K. Sinhai, who was an expert in black magic. He fell in love with the Princess Ratnavati of Bhangarh, who was very beautiful. When he was 18 years old, one day he went shopping with his friends. The magician saw Princess Ittar (the smell) buying and replacing the smell with a love potion to capture the princess. He offered the drink to the princess, so that she would begin to appreciate it. The princess, however, understood the magician’s trickster, and when he offered her the liquor bowl, he threw it on a large stone nearby. As a result, the stone rolled over the magician and crushed him. Before he died, he cursed that Bhangarh would soon be destroyed and that no one could live in his district. Then the Bhangarh Fort was invaded by Mughals from the north and the city was surrounded and fired. All the people (around 10,000) in the fort, including the princess, were murdered. Now people believe that the fort is obsessed by the curse of the magician and that the spirit of the magician and the princess still roam the fort.
