This is a guest post by travel blogger, Himanshu from Pearls India Tour.
Is that only me who feels excited about the haunted places or is that you as well who feels the shivers down his spine with every mention of a new haunted place? Because I think this post will be an interesting read for my friends who belong to the ‘love to visit scary places squad’. Well, I am now going to take you through the most adventurous ride of seven places in India that are sure to give you Goosebumps. Buckle up your seat belts, Readers! The list goes as under:
Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan
If half of your bucket list shows your love for travel then this place can sure be one of those because it’s the captivating history of Bhangarh that brings travelers here. Bhangarh Fort is better known as the ‘Most Haunted Place in India’ can be the perfect destination for your coming one day trip. It is a Fort where the tourists and locals are not advised to enter after evening hours (after 5 pm) due to the paranormal experiences inside the Fort, shared by the visitors. Once an animated palace, it is now surrounded by barren lands. It is believed to have been cursed by the Princess Ranavati of Bhangarh that nobody would be able to live peacefully here. Much thrilling?
Raj Kiran Hotel, Lonavala, Maharashtra
A hotel located in Lonavala, 100 kms away from the Mumbai. Lonavala is known for its serenity and green surroundings but nobody amongst you have thought of a terrifying place here. A room on the ground floor in this hotel is believed to be haunted, as per the guests who have shared their experiences in which they were faced by paranormal figures, and witnessed scary moments. They had to undergo medical therapies and phycological treatments to be able to restore their mental balance. It is like a few good inspirations for nerve-numbing Bollywood thrillers lie within the heart of Mumbai.
Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad
Not many know that one of the most famous movie shooting places in India is also known to be one of the most haunted places due to the presence of evil forces here. Many paranormal activities have been experienced by the visitors, actors as well as the light men that loudly speak about the terror felt by them. As per the locals, the souls of the soldiers are wandering who died in the war of Nizam’s.
Not to mention but Rajasthan apart from being a loving home to the world-famous forts is also an abode to the supernatural forces. Kuldhara an abandoned village which you can also checkout when in Jaisalmer. Once known to be a prosperous village is now known to be a scary and cursed place due to the occurrences of horrifying activities here for over 200 years. It is now maintained by the archaeological survey of India as a National Heritage. It is said that Kuldhara is a residence to the spirits at night.
Grand ParadI Towers, Malabar Hills, Mumbai
Who can think that the City of Dreams, the mayanagri, the place where Bollywood originated, owns a few scary houses too, and the prominent amongst those being Grand Paradi Tower. Nobody can believe the Towers situated in the plush area can be haunted until he comes across the blood curdling stories that have taken place here. It is being said that the second floor of the Grand Parody Tower is a stay for Ghosts since a long time now. Moreover, since the tower was built in 1975, a number of flats on this floor are unsold and hence, unoccupied yet.
Agrasen ki Baoli, Delhi
Baolis were a thoughtful creation of the past, which gradually were neglected with the emergence of modern times. So was Agrasen ki Baoli, is now accepted as a site of historical significance and hence, protected by the Archaeological Survey of India. It is a 15-meter-wide and 60-meter-long step well, near Connaught Place, one of the top places to visit in Delhi. The silence grows deeper as one gets down the 103 red sandstone stairs and the surrounding air gets cooler. The other-worldly feel of being followed by someone leads to an increasing pace while reaching the bottom of the stairs, giving this place an eerie outlook.
Khairatabad Science College, Hyderabad
Here, in the City of Pearls, who thought ghosts could be a feature too. Once known for vigorous development, a successful college, that lies desolate, is my recommendation if you’re looking for some fearful happenings. Here is where some bone chilling stories have taken place. It is called to be haunted by the dead bodies that were used for testing in the laboratories.
Thrilled enough to witness some uncanny striking moments? You have an interesting list already and a pinch of informative photography to have fun with your friends. Get set go!
