1. Ghost Palace of Bhangarh
Once a lavished king’s palace, now a deserted ruin has been said to be the most feared place. We are talking about the Bhangarh palace, located in the Alwar District of Rajasthan. However intense the whispers of the people about this town being a creepy place, it is exceptionally bewitching to see the lush green surroundings. Daring enthusiasts may visit this unusual town maybe to encounter some restless spirits giving you uneasy vibes. A sound caution to take with you is to avoid the dominated hours of sunset till dawn.
But why is Bhangarh Palace topped as the most haunted place in India? The folks around the proximity give two solid answers. The barren palace faced tragedy due to a thwarted love mission between a princess and a magician. A desperate magician called Singhia was deeply charmed with the beauty of the princess. Aware that falling in love with a princess is beyond impossible, he tried to cast a spell on her. Turns out the princess was well versed with an occult that she was practicing, and foiled his plan. That led straight to his death, and on his last breath, he cursed that the town should bear no more inheritance and generations. Since then, it has led to its doom.
Wait up, another legend said that the town was completely deserted due to a failure to keep an oath from a Sadhu called Guru Balu Nath. The king had come to him to propose a palace to be built. He gave the permission but with one condition that it should not overshadow his residence, less it will be cursed. The following descendants after the particular king passed the Sadhu’s words lightly and built a palace overshadowing his residence. Sooner, the area was completely devastated.
2. Khairatabad Science College
It was then a prestigious college until that fateful day! Khairatabad Science College near Khairatabad flyover in Hyderabad is one good haunted institute to ravage your imagination. If that scariest movie did not get you so well, better experience a real-life nerve-racking venture here in this old retiring building. How about a little shudder when you hear a click-clacking of bones and skeletons in this inconspicuous area?
It is believed that when the building was abandoned, the corpses in the biology labs were not well disposed of. Unfortunate people had often seen skeletons and sparks or hearing unpleasant noises and screams. A more alarming incident was when a guard who was summoned by the authority was found dead mysteriously. This adds another fuming fear for the people.
3. Delhi Cantt
Late at night, you happen to take your vehicle for a long ride, on the way stopped by a stranger for a lift, you are glad that you found a company to kill the long night, but your friend next to you turns into some horrifying phantom… how about that? Will you be getting a chill thrill, that even the ghost beside you gets petrified seeing your hair standing up! This is no different from the many incidents that happened at Delhi Cantonment. It is one of the busiest highways in the National Capital of India. Due to the routined plying of vehicles and populous inhabitants, the area is unsuspicious of any paranormal activities but witnessed several times.
Well, most people had come across a lady dressed in white asking any motorists for a lift. Either the lone motorist stops and gives a ride is never seen coming back alive or refused to give a lift were chased after with the same speed as that of the motorcycle and then disappeared. If any driver stops to ask for directions, he will end up coming back on the same spot over and over for the entire night.
The reason gave two theories. A tortured spirit of a woman who was brutally raped and murdered by lustful men whom she thought may help her get a lift somewhere in the city. Her dead body got dumped at Delhi Cantt, and since then her soul might have been trapped in this unfortunate loop.
Another theory is of a wicked woman who had found her husband cheating on her. Her rage took to killing her two children and herself. But the impulse of shame deprived her spirit of becoming a lost soul and haunts the living that passes by the road of Delhi Cantt.
