HolidayIQ reviewer Suhani gives an introduction, "Bhangarh Fort is one of the oldest in Rajasthan established in 1573 as Bhagwant Das' second son Madho Singh."

HolidayIQ reviewer Aniket Sharma shares, "Upon reaching Bhangarh, the clouds had disappeared and the haunted fort stood demolished at some places and still intact amidst the hills sporting a picturesque view. At the entrance, the ASI disclaimer that ‘Visiting the fort in late hours is strictly prohibited’ is a pre-requisite to start scaring you if you’re one strong person. It is said that the market comes alive at mid hours of the moonless nights. The ghosts of Rani Ratnawati and her enemy ‘tantrik’are the most talked of here."

Mariam-Zamani was the wife of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and the mother of Salim (Jahangir). Built by Jahangir, the tomb features a Baradari style of architecture effectively blended with the Mughal style.

HolidayIQ reviewer Anuradha gives a detailed account, "The whole complex had a dark dejected feel to it. It was as if through her final resting place, the Hindu wife of Akbar was trying to tell the story of her life, a story of utter neglect and dejection, a story of losing independence and dignity, a story of rejection by everyone including the two of the most important persons in her life, one to whom she was married to and the other whom she had given birth."

HolidayIQ reviewer Sreesha Divakaran talks about Guna Cave, "You need to be careful when you walk, because though it isn't steep as such, but it is possible you may trip. Those roots look enchanting, I must say. I have never seen anything like it, kind of like grey giant noodles spread all over the place! They don't allow you into the caves anymore, because of some disappearances and accidents, but you can see the mouth of what they call the Devil's Kitchen. Creepy place!"

HolidayIQ reviewer Gowtham Donz shares, "Lake Pulicat is a backwater lake with a river flowing through it. The lake is surrounded by fishing hamlets. Boating was allowed till a few years back but after a tragic boating accident, the government banned it. As far as sightseeing goes there is a lighthouse, a few churches and an Old Dutch Cemetery and a dilapidated fort. The cold mornings, the fishing hamlet and the dark atmosphere give it a really eerie and creepy look. Not safe after dark." It is the second largest lagoon in India.

HolidayIQ reviewer Harnish says about Kuldhara, "The visit to the haunted village of Kuldhara was a class apart." It is believed to be cursed by the Paludal Brahmin community, who were the last residents of the town. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Sanjeev adds, "Kuldhara is a remote village which was active some 200 years ago. According to the local residents of Jaisalmer, every resident of the village suddenly left it in a single night and since then no one knows about them! If you wish to feel it, just go through the destroyed houses. No one is allowed to enter after evening. It is kept closed from visitors as well as locals."
