The first story of the Fort is popular by the title, A place lost in the shade. The story surrounds the King Madho Singh and Bala Nath. It was decided mutually among the both that the shadow of the Fort should not fall on the house of the ascetic. However, when the Fort was built, one of the ambitious successors of the King built a vertical fortification, which brought dark shadow on the ascetic’s abode after which the Fort was bewitched and it became a haunted Fort.
The second story attached to the Bhangarh Fort is related with the Princess of Bhangarh Ratnavati and a magician Singhia. According to the story, the local magician fell in love with Princess Ratnavati, and tried to bewitch her through a cosmetic she was about to use so that she also falls in love with him.

When the magician was taking his last breath, he cursed the Bhangarh Fort and the surrounding villages, that no soul would ever live there in peace.
