Haunted Themes and Places have always been favorite of writers and filmmakers. We all know numerous films and novels involving houses that have been inhabited by ghosts or spirits. Most of us are comfortable reading and watching horror stories/movies, but visiting any of them brings goosebumps.
For those who are in love with adventure and some adrenaline rush, we present a list of 10 most haunted places around Delhi for you to visit. A sign of warning: Some places are not for the faint-hearted.
Considered to be one of the most haunted places in Delhi, you’d better be sitting inside a vehicle whose engine can easily outpace “that figure” while venturing there. It is said that a middle-aged woman clad in white sari asks one for a lift, and the time is well past midnight. You would be freaked out to the hilt and better rev up the engines of your vehicle.
Jamali Kamali Tomb and Mosque (Mehrauli Archaeological Park, New Delhi – 30)
Apart from the architectural grandiose that the place is, there are voices which call out to the visitors from the bazaar inside the central dome of the mausoleum. People who visit this place always complain of an invisible gaze deftly following their movements. Abnormal you say, eh?
Khooni Nadi (Rohini, New Delhi- 85)
A stretch of a water body which sucks you inside. A river which gulps down all those who dare to go inside its conspiring waters. This river in Delhi’s Rohini does precisely that. The reason it got its name thus. How similar this water body is to the Bermuda Triangle.
Fort of Feroz Shah Kotla – A Haunted Fort
The most striking feature about this Tughlaq era citadel is its loneliness. Local folks congregate every Thursday at the Fort and offer incense sticks, among other offerings, in order to calm the ruffled djinns. Satiate the spirits and you would have them at your eternal command. But what if they refused to bow down to you?
It is believed that the sons of the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, were publically executed here. It is said that their spirits still linger about this place but they don’t cause any disturbance to the Indians, but strange things have happened to foreigners who have paid a visit to this place.
