The weather was nice and warm, I was also ready for an adventure. So I headed to my nearest form in my homeplace Hanumangarh, the Bhatner fort. It funny that this place is only 10 km away from my home but I never visited it yet. Can you believe this? Well, anyway, I decided to visit this magnificent place and explore its wonders.
Bhatner Fort Hanumangarh – Its history
Bhatner Fort is situated in Hanumangarh, Rajasthan. It is believed to be around 1700 years old and is also known as “fortress of the Bhati Rajputs“. The name Bhatner fort derives from Bhatner, which was the old name of Hnaumangarh. It means “Fortress of the Bhati Rajputs”. Also, it is one of the oldest forts in India which you can visit for FREE!
Bhatner fort was made for soldiers so that they can stay and be ready when they were needed. The fort is big enough to hold many soldiers, have proper grounds for practice swords fight and much more.
My Trip To Bhatner Fort Hanumangarh
I had a splendid time while visiting this place, this place is marvellous and quite. The monuments scripted with its history and the free price tag attracted my soul.
Bhatner fort is broken at multiple places. Here you see a junction where one can dissect old heritage buildings on one side and modern civilization on the other. It is funny that people here are using fort’s bricks to make houses nearby.
You will be surprised to know that the walls of this fort are plastered with mud! Still, this fort managed to survive 1700 years. Truly a masterpiece from ancient Indian architectures. Even the walls of this fort are around 1 metre thick!! Even a canon cannot make a hole in such walls. But sadly with time… these walls will come to their end slowly and slowly.
The view from these dangerous windows gives a sneak pick to the outside beauty of Bhatner fort. You can see the outer walls up from here and the old untouched bricks. These bricks are gradually turning black with time, but still are strong enough to support fort’s weight.
Bhatner Fort Hanumangarh – Is it safe to visit?
As this place is free to visit, there are no guards or security lines what so ever. So please be cautious when you’re visiting with kids.
They will find it amusing to walk down these windows in order to capture a mesmerizing view. But we all know its a window straight to the hell.
These broken walls and dangerous slides here in Bhatner fort might attract a lot of wanderers and travellers like me. But be sure to take care of your safety while taking shots here. Just one leg slip and you will fall four-story down straight into an ancient brick. I assure you, it will hurt
Can you see the dept, it sure feels amazing when you see it up here. Please don’t come here if you’re feeling suicidal, it will just encourage you lol 😀
Can you see the vast destruction behind me? There are a lot of sights here where you can encounter such destruction sites.
In the end, it is a great adventure sight to explore. Local people come here to take a morning walk. It sure is dangerous at so many levels. but adventurous at the same time. Don’t miss this change if you visit here.
In the end, I had a great fun here. It was a marvellous experience to visit this place. And all that for FREE! Since there is no fee on entry ticket, you can visit this place anytime you like! I recommend you to visit this place in the morning as you can take some pretty good shots in the golden hour. However, all these pics in this article are taken in the evening time. So it doesn’t really matter when you visit, all that matters is to have a great time. Cheers!
