The Most Haunted Place; Haunted Delhi

Locals say that there is a ghost wandering in this place, the police do not let anyone enter here.This is the most haunted place in Delhi.

Delhi, is also called the city of the djinns. Djinns are spirits, also called as ghosts. While, over the years,Delhi has become an even more fast paced city with its Delhi Metro and the numerous swanky cars that populate its wide roads, there is a dark side to the city as well. Today, I shall let you in with a little secret-the secret of the most haunted  place in Delhi. This place-popularly called BHULI BHATIYARI KA MAHAL- is behind the imposing statue of Lord Hanuman  near the Jhandewalan Metro station. It is actually a small palace cum courtyard which was supposedly, constructed by a Sultan in the 14th century , in Delhi.The idea was to construct a  photo.JPG

a hunting lodge for himself..Some people say that it was meant as a secluded place for one of his queens.

 

Over a period of time, this place acquired the reputation of a haunted place as the locals reported of hearing strange sounds of men and women. The place is quite way off the main road that connects Central Delhi to the western parts of Delhi. Police is usually posted here to deter the more adventurous from visiting the premises. There is another theory regarding the history of the place-namely, it was probably the abode of a neglected queen who was a Bhatiyari in clan. Bhatiyaris are a clan of Rajputs who inhabit the western part of India. Then there are others who say that an enraged peer or faqir cursed this place after a spat with the people in authority. There is still an extant water tank near the palace. Above all, a very curious place to visit.

The Amazing Story of Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, Delhi

Today is the Prakash Parva in memory of Guru Harkishan, one of the earlier Gurus of Sikhs.

Guru Harkishan was one of the youngest Gurus, having adorned the seat at a very young age of 8 years.

In this young age, he , naturally, attracted a lot of people from other faiths to his chosen fold and this did not please the then emperor of India, Aurangzeb.The year was 1668 and he was fresh from his campaign to usurp the seat that was till recently occupied by Shah Jehan.

The Emperor asked Raja Jai Singh , one of his vassals and the king of Amber to fetch the Guru to Delhi so that Aurangzeb could check the Guru out.

The Raja, one of the craftiest courtiers of Aurangzeb, managed to convince the Guru to accompany him to Delhi.

The Guru, naive as he was, readily agreed.

He was put up in the present day Gurudwara Bangla Sahib-at that time it used to be the palace of Raja Jai Singh.

Jai Singh sent a retinue of women-all dressed similarly-to the Guru and requested him to identify Jai Singh’s wife among the group of women.The idea was to check the Guru’s wisom, awareness etc.

The Guru readily identified the king’s wife and thereby earned his respect.

A few days later ,a dreadful disease , measles struck the Delhi citizens.

The Guru tried level hard to treat the Delhiites of the disease but, in this endeavour, himself passed away.

He died in the Raja’s palace which was later converted to a Gurudwara.

This Gurudwara stands near the Connaught Place and the Jantar Mantar, also the Raja’s creation.

This is the amazing story of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib.
