भानगढ़ किले कि ऊपरी मंजिले जो कि बिल्कुल खंडहर हो चुकी हैं

राजकुमारी रत्‍नावती और तांत्रिक सिंधु सेवड़ा (Rajkumari Ratnawati aur Tantarik Sindhu Devada) :- कहते है कि भानगढ़ कि राजकुमारी  रत्‍नावती बेहद खुबसुरत थी। उस समय उनके रूप की चर्चा पूरे राज्‍य में थी और देश के कोने कोने के राजकुमार उनसे विवाह करने के इच्‍छुक थे। उस समय उनकी उम्र महज 18 वर्ष ही थी और उनका यौवन उनके रूप में और निखार ला चुका था। उस समय कई राज्‍यो से उनके लिए विवाह के प्रस्‍ताव आ रहे थे। उसी दौरान वो एक बार किले से अपनी सखियों के साथ बाजार में निकती थीं। राजकुमारी रत्‍नावती एक इत्र की दुकान पर पहुंची और वो इत्रों को हाथों में लेकर उसकी खुशबू ले रही थी। उसी समय उस दुकान से कुछ ही दूरी  सिंधु सेवड़ा नाम का व्‍यक्ति खड़ा होकर उन्‍हे बहुत ही गौर से देख रहा था। सिंधु सेवड़ा उसी राज्‍य में रहता था और वो काले जादू का महारथी था। ऐसा बताया जाता है कि वो राजकुमारी के रूप का दिवाना था और उनसे प्रगाण प्रेम करता था। वो किसी भी तरह राजकुमारी को हासिल करना चाहता था। इसलिए उसने उस दुकान के पास आकर एक इत्र के बोतल जिसे रानी पसंद कर रही थी उसने उस बोतल पर काला जादू कर दिया जो राजकुमारी के वशीकरण के लिए किया था। लेकिन एक विश्वशनीय व्यक्ति ने राजकुमारी को इस राज के बारे में बता दिया।

राजकुमारी रत्‍नावती ने उस इत्र के बोतल को उठाया, लेकिन उसे वही पास के एक पत्‍थर पर पटक दिया। पत्‍थर पर पटकते ही वो बोतल टूट गया और सारा इत्र उस पत्‍थर पर बिखर गया। इसके बाद से ही वो पत्‍थर फिसलते हुए उस तांत्रिक सिंधु सेवड़ा के पीछे चल पड़ा और तांत्रिक को कुचल दिया, जिससे उसकी मौके पर ही मौत हो गयी। मरने से पहले तांत्रिक ने श्राप दिया कि इस किले में रहने वालें सभी लोग जल्‍द ही मर जायेंगे और वो दोबारा जन्‍म नहीं ले सकेंगे और ताउम्र उनकी आत्‍माएं इस किले में भटकती रहेंगी। उस तांत्रिक के मौत के कुछ दिनों के बाद ही भानगढ़  और अजबगढ़ के बीच युद्ध हुआ जिसमें किले में रहने वाले सारे लोग मारे गये। यहां तक की राजकुमारी रत्‍नावती भी उस शाप से नहीं बच सकी और उनकी भी मौत हो गयी। एक ही किले में एक साथ इतने बड़े कत्‍लेआम के बाद वहां मौत की चींखें गूंज गयी और आज भी उस किले में उनकी रू‍हें घुमती हैं। किलें में सूर्यास्‍त के बाद प्रवेश निषेध (Entrance Prohibited after Sunset) :- भारतीय पुरातत्व सर्वेक्षण (एएसआई) द्वारा खुदाई से इस बात के पर्याप्त सबूत मिले हैं कि यह शहर एक प्राचीन ऐतिहासिक स्थल है। फिलहाल इस किले की देख रेख भारत सरकार द्वारा की जाती है। किले के चारों तरफ आर्कियोंलाजिकल सर्वे आफ इंडिया (एएसआई) की टीम मौजूद रहती हैं। एएसआई ने सख्‍त हिदायत दे रखी  है कि सूर्यास्‍त के बाद इस इलाके में किसी भी व्‍यक्ति के रूकने के लिए मनाही है।

एएसआई ने सख्‍त हिदायत दे रखी है कि सूर्यास्‍त के बाद इस इलाके में किसी भी व्‍यक्ति के रूकने के लिए मनाही है। भारतीय पुरातत्व के द्वारा इस खंडहर को संरक्षित कर दिया गया है। गौर करने वाली बात है जहाँ पुरात्तव विभाग ने हर संरक्षित क्षेत्र में अपने ऑफिस बनवाये है वहीँ इस किले के संरक्षण के लिए पुरातत्व विभाग ने अपना ऑफिस भानगढ़ से दूर बनाया है। भानगढ़ किले के मंदिर ( Temple of Bhangarh) :- जैसा कि हमने आपको बताया कि इस किले में कई मंदिर भी है जिसमे भगवान सोमेश्वर, गोपीनाथ, मंगला देवी और केशव राय के मंदिर प्रमुख मंदिर हैं।

इन मंदिरो कि एक यह विशेषता है कि जहाँ किले सहित पूरा भानगढ़ खंडहर में तब्दील हो चूका है वही भानगढ़ के सारे के सारे मंदिर सही है अलबत्ता अधिकतर मंदिरो से मुर्तिया गायब है। सोमेश्वर महादेव मंदिर में जरूर शिवलिंग है।

दूसरी बात भानगढ़ के सोमेशवर महादेव मंदिर में सिंधु सेवड़ा तांत्रिक के वंशज ही पूजा पाठ कर रहे है। ऐसा हमे 2009 में हमारी भानगढ़ यात्रा के दौरान उस मंदिर के पुजारी ने बताया था। जब हमने उनसे भूतों के बारे में पूछा तो उन्होंने कहा कि यहाँ भूत है यह बात सही है पर वो भूत केवल किले के अंदर ही रहते है किले से निचे नहीं आते है क्योकि किले के बिलकुल पास भोमिया जी का स्थान है वो उन्हें किले से बाहर नहीं आने देते है। उन्होंने यह भी कहा कि रात के समय आप महल परिसर में रह सकते है कोई दिक्क्त नहीं है पर किले के अंदर नहीं जाना चाहिए।

तो यह है भानगढ़ कि कहानी अब वहाँ भूत है कि नहीं यह एक विवाद का विषय हो  सकता है पर यह जरूर है कि भानगढ़ एक बार घूमने लायक जगह है और यदि आप भानगढ़ घूमने का प्रोग्राम बनाये तो हमारी यह राय है कि आप वहा सावन ( जुलाई -अगस्त ) में जाए क्योकि भानगढ़ तीनो तरफ से अरावली कि पहाड़ियो से घिरा हुआ है और  सावन में उन पहाड़ियो में बहार आ जाती है। और यदि आपको सोमेशवर महादेव मंदिर के पुजारी से भानगढ़ का इतिहास सुनना हो तो आप सोमवार के दिन जाए क्योंकि पुजारी जी सोमवार को पूरा दिन मंदिर में रहते है बाकी दिन तो सुबह पूजा करके वापस चले जाते है।
