So here is an interesting story about baoli, it is said it was built at the time of mahabharta, but there is no strong evidence about it and it is said t was rebuilt in the 14th century. It is said that the black water was present in the stepwell which hypnotizes the people to commit suicide, now, it is dry and there is no water, and no suicide update so far, but people say the baoli is haunted. This could be a theory because a lot of people died at this place. There are stories of hearing voices. This is the reason no one can enter baoli after 5:30 in the evening at the daytime it is mostly crowded by tourists. But like all the other haunted stories, this one is also different for everyone, does who have heard the voices believe in this, and those who didn’t do not believe in this.

Gurudwara Shri Bangla Sahib

Moving on to Gurudwara Shri Bangla Sahib. It is open all 24 hours, this is not considered a monument, as this place is still active and Sangat is regularly active with angar being served the whole day long, but the place is so attractive that, I cannot complete the list without mentioning Bangla sahib in this list as this is the attraction for most of the tourists.
