When a descendant prince raised the palace to a height that cast a shadow on Balu Nath's forbidden retreat, he cursed the town. Balu Nath is said to be buried there to this day in a small samādhi.
There exists another myth. This is the legend of the Princess of Bhangarh, Ratnavati. She is believed to be one of the jewels of Rajasthan.
On her eighteenth birthday she began to get offers of marriage from other regions. In the area lived a tantrik, a magician well versed in the occult, called Singhia, who was in love with the princess but knew that the match was impossible.
