Abhaneri Step Well- Situated between Jaipur-Agra Road. Chand Baori is being the major and most interesting attraction. The sort of the architectural art what local went into constricting it, deserves some great appreciation. Chand Baori is as deep as 13 storeys and up and down this level. There used to be a room for King and queen to stay along with a stage for art performance. This Baori also serves as water harvesting source for locals and to cool off themselves in the hot summer.
Another must do and see in Abhaneri is the Harshat Mata Temple exhibiting medieval architecture in Rajasthan.. It is a tradition to wash your hands and feet before going into the temple.

Bhangarh village is situated in Alwar district in the state of Rajasthan, between Jaipur and Delhi, famous for its 17th century haunted fortress there which has been kept well preserved. Plenty of rumours have been doing around about this fortress and the one which has been the talk of the town, the black magician fell in love with the princess of Bhangarh who was very beautiful. One day the princess went out to buy Ittar (scent). The Magician saw this and he changed the scent with a love potion in order to ensnare the princess. He thought she would walk under his spell and marry him. But, the princess saw through the magician’s trick, and when he offered her the bowl of potion, she put it away onto a big boulder nearby. Eventually, the boulder started rolling down towards the magician and crushed him. He cursed that Bhangarh would be destroyed soon after his death and no one would be able to live within its precincts. That being told, Bhangarh Fort was invaded by the Mughal later on; 10,000 people lived in the fort city at that time. No one was spared in the fort, including the princess. People believe the ghosts in the fort are that of the princess and the magician.
Other sites of interest are old havelis, and a mosque.
Entry to Bhangarh is prohibited before sunset and after sunrise. Archaeological Survey of India, too has placed a warning sign board [in Hindi] clearly stating- Entering the borders of Bhangarh before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited. Legal action would be taken against anybody who does not follow these instructions.’’
