My First Flight Trip & Travel to Delhi-Agra-Rajasthan-Manali (Part 4)

May 9, 2021

Day 4 -

The next day, 6th July, we left Agra around 8am. Our next destination was Fatehpur Sikri. We reached there around 9am. The entry fee was Rs. 35 per person. After 5 mins of entering, a guy came to us and started irritating us, saying he will guide us, but we had less time to explore the place and had to leave for Jaipur. The guy kept following us, and finally, we allowed him to explain. The guy was good and explained everything beautifully. Buland Darwaza is the main attraction of Fatehpur Sikri. We entered the Tomb of Salim Chishti, one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture. It is believed that tying a thread on the marble screens of the main tomb building fulfils all the wishes; I did that. We left the place around 11 am. Our next destination? Yes, Jaipur.

After a 1-hour ride from Fatehpur Sikri, we stopped at a Dhaba for lunch. Our first lunch in Rajasthan. While having lunch, we decided to go to the most haunted place of India – The Bhangarh Fort, which is 85km before Jaipur. On the way to Bhangarh, our driver took us to a beautiful place named Chand Baori Step Well, A historical place in Abhaneri. Chand Baori is said to be named after a local ruler called Raja Chanda. Chand Baori is a deep four-sided well with a large temple on the back face of the building. It was amazing. It was so hot there. Never experienced these temperatures before in my life. We had sugarcane juice and left for Bhangarh.

We reached Bhangarh around 4 pm. We spent around an hour in Bhangarh Fort. There were lots of other tourists also. The closing time of the fort is 6pm. No one can enter the fort after 6pm. Everyone discussed the stories about this haunted place and honestly, I was not feeling scared. The place was so beautiful and cool. A local guide told us the tale behind the most haunted place in India. According to legend, a wizard adept in black magic named Sinhai fell in love with Ratnavati, a beautiful Bhangarh princess. The Princess had many suitors. He tried to win her over. But she spurned all his advances. He then resorted to using magic on her by hiding a love potion in her perfume. The princess came to know of this. In anger, poured the bottle over a huge boulder. This crushed the tantric. Before breathing his last, the tantric put a curse on the town, which led to its destruction. We left Bhangarh around 5pm.

Finally, around 7pm, we entered the Pink City of India – Jaipur. It’s a huge and beautiful city. We are fully tired, but the beauty of Jaipur city boosted our energy and excitement level to the peak. Around 8pm, we reached our Hotel Room and had a great Rajasthani dinner. Everyone was fully tired, so after dinner, they went to bed. But me? I couldn’t stop myself. I thought it’s too early to sleep, so I asked the driver for a small ride.

He was like, let’s go; I will do what you say you are my boss (in a funny way). Believe me, the night view of Jaipur city is just amazing. We returned to the hotel around 11pm.

I discussed with the driver about our next plan; he said we would explore Jaipur tomorrow and leave for Udaipur tomorrow evening. We had no idea there was an interesting twist coming in our travel plan the next day. Stay tuned for the next part!
