Ramoji film city is so huge that it is spread across 1666 acres, large enough for you to roam and get lost in its beauty. A renowned tourist spot for people, who love drama and something extra edge like Indian movies, this is the second-largest integrated film city.

As locals believe, there are supernatural powers in the area which make their presence feel through suspicious activities like constant knocking on bathroom doors, things scattered all over the floor, or Urdu words scribbled on a mirror.

Locals believe these instances are not just mere incidents as this huge land was a land of war. Nizams were the owner of Ramoji, which is why it is believed that the same spirits haunt the place.

Nonetheless, Ramoji film city is one of the must-go places in Hyderabad or we should say ‘worth the risk’.

It is a renowned place for tourists and one of the most haunted places in India. We all love gazing upon the sun while it sets down, especially when you’re sitting on the beach. But here, you need to be careful, during the daytime it remains beautiful and peaceful but as soon as the sun sets down it becomes a living nightmare. As locals and tourists share their horrifying experience, they heard voices because the place happens to be the haunted cremation and the voices come from the DEAD. People who try to spend the night at the beach either go through some traumatic situations or they never come back. As locals have reported they hear voices screaming, giggling, shouting, crying when no one physically presented as far as you see. In one of the terrifying incidents, a man was found even found dead on the beach and what made it even more suspicious is he had his tongue popping out, which no one could understand or explain.
