5 Most Haunted Places in India
There are end numbers of haunted places in India, but only some stories we know. If you’re anxious about ghosts and spirits then you have to know about these places.
Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan
Rajasthan – ‘The Great Indian Desert’ It’s a land of kings, colorful festivals, camel treks, and whatnot. If you’re a net rat and spend days researching before going on a trip then you must have read about this place in Rajasthan. The fort is located in the Alwar district near the border of Sariska Tiger Reserve. The ambiance is nerve-racking, ruins of the king’s palace, the natural stream falls, and dense trees surrounding the pond area. The timings for this place are 6 AM – 6 PM strictly because it happens to be the most haunted place in India.
The fact that it is declared the most haunted place is the reason being the famous one. Travelers visit here to witness the unreal reality, which leaves some of them shaken, surprised, horrified or simply silent. Let’s jump to the story behind this mysterious place and unravel the mystery. The story is as dramatic as Indian movies, the King, his daughter, even a Tantrik with all the black magic who fell in love with princess Ratnavati, cursed her and the whole village as he couldn’t face rejection. As per authorities, nobody is allowed inside the fort after 6 PM in summer, 5 PM in winters. Whoever tries to stay during the dark doesn’t return back. Many have reported they encountered strange sounds, a woman screaming, shouting, and music with echo. As per locals, people who try to stay there at nights, they never return.
Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad
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. The interesting face rather intriguing is that spirits target women more than men; whether they hear weird sounds in the toilet, feel someone is watching them, or find their clothes torn. Nonetheless, Ramoji film city is one of the must-go places in Hyderabad or we should say ‘worth the risk’.
Delhi has numerous haunted places, be it haunted houses, haunted forests, or even roads. One of the most haunted places in the Delhi Cantonment area which is located in southwest Delhi, the area belongs to Army headquarters which makes it so silent and hushed at nights.
Picturizing a ghost is effortless, white clothes, long dreadlocks, twisted legs, and long nails. But here, picturizing is of no use because you get to see this very often, as people share in their stories.
Every story has this common scenario, a lady in white saree running along with a vehicle asking for a lift. When the driver refuses or ignores the lady, her inner lady activates and crave for attention in order do so she runs beside the vehicle at the same speed while creepily knock at your window, so you don’t ignore her, can you?
Why this chick got no chill, you ask? Well, some say that this is the act of vengeance and revenge as the same lady on her last day of life asked for a lift, got raped and left on Delhi Cantonment road. After that day her spirit is stuck here in a loop where she asks for a lift, late in the night.
Kuldhara Village, Rajasthan
The Ghost village of Rajasthan falls under the list of the most haunted places in India; it is an abandoned deserted village as the villagers left this place cursed along with 84 other villages. 200 years ago, there were Paliwals Brahmin in Kuldhara and there was Sulam Singh, who was the diwan of the particular region who levied huge taxes on the villagers and fell in love with one of the girls. That’s where it started, the diwan wanted to win the girl but villagers opposed which made him angry, he threatened villagers and couldn’t let them live in peace, that’s when they left the village and cursed that no one will live here in peace.
As no one lives in the abandoned village, but the stories go around paranormal activities ‘chudails’ walking around the area which is the believed reason for mysterious deaths in Kuldhara Village.
Dumas Beach, Gujarat
Beaches are calling? What if it is calling you for real? It sounds fun until you hear that VOICE! Dumas Beach is located in Surat, Gujarat. 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.
In the end, I would say, “Don’t listen to what they say, go SEE”
