A few days back, a twitter follower suggested me to talk about haunted places in India that I want to visit in 2015. But as my will for being a traveller is getting stronger day by day, I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of haunted places in India that I want to visit at least once in my life.
So, I put my Supernatural glasses on 😉 and started looking for haunted places in India and these are the lucky ones that have found place in my list. This is part one of the post… enjoy it and then subscribe to the newsletter to make sure you don’t miss the part 2. <3
1. Bhan Garh Fort, Rajasthan: I have had a great interest in history during school time and since then I have been longing to explore Rajasthan. There are a couple of famous haunted places in Rajasthan. The Bhan Garh Fort is obviously the most famous of them situated on the way to Alwar and Jaipur. As per the legend, a magician cursed the palace that its residents would die an unnatural death and their souls would stay trapped in it forever. The ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) has a strict rule of not letting anyone stay near the fort after sunset. This place is among the most haunted places in the world list.
2. Brij Raj Bhavan Palace, Rajasthan: Apart from the famous Bhan Garh Fort, there is a Brij Raj Bhavan Palace in Kota that is said to have the ghost of a British Officer who was killed during the revolt of 1857 and has been alleged with slapping guards at night 😛 (LOL)
3.Deserted Kuldhara, Rajasthan: There is a deserted placed called Kuldhara which is under a spell which would kill anyone who tries to inhibit the place. Well, that means we can still visit the place as a tourist. Right?
4. Agrasen ki Baoli, Delhi: I have been to Delhi once with my parents and of course, there was no way they would let me explore places like these – Agrasen ki Baoli is a stepped well which, according to the folk lore, was filled with black water that hypnotized people to commit suicide. Let’s see whether I get hypnotized or not? 😉 I doubt it for PK never committed suicide even when he had to see those plastic lips of Anushka Sharma. (Share this post if you know what I’m talking about).
5. Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi: It is advised by locals that you must never leave young women unattended at this place for the evil spirits dwelling here attack young lonely women. But they love it when you offer sweets to them. Looks like I need to buy a box of chocolates before setting off for this trip to Feroz Shah Kotla.
6. Lothian Cemetery: Headless soldiers have always been thrilling to watch in Hindi horror shows. 😛 Looks like I have found a real one. Though Lothian Cemetry is house to a large number of dead soldiers who were buried during 1857 revolt, a headless British soldier named Nicholas forgot to die and still haunts this place.
7. Delhi Cantt: A ghost hooker clad in a white saree tries to ask for lift from people passing from the area all alone at night. If they don’t stop, she starts following them and runs even faster than the speed of their vehicle. I wish I could hop on the back of this ghost lady to travel from Chandigarh to Bathinda. It is a long and tiring journey by bus.
TO BE CONTINUED…
Don’t forget to tell me if you want a particular place to be added in the list. I would love to have more places listed in my travel-to journal.
