Note: Read and visit at your own risk! Not for the frail hearted.

We often love listening to ghost stories that our friends or elders fill us with. We can listen to them hours on end without batting an eyelash! Especially the elders in the family have some terrible tales to tell us about the most haunted places that they’ve been to or heard about. And somehow these storytelling sessions happen only at night. I wonder why?

Having said that, how many of us have ever thought of visiting these places for real? I mean, as scary as it sounds, there’s also a different thrill involved for those of you who want to know more about the other world or for that matter the history of a particular place. Now that Halloween is here, I am going to take you through 5 of the most haunted places in India that you wouldn’t dare visit but you must if you love taking risks!

Scroll at your own risk!

This happens to be one of THE most haunted places in India. If tales are to be believed, then a black magic spell has been cast over it by a sorcerer. A lot of paranormal activities have been recorded in this area and a warning has been issued for people to stay away from this place at night.

It is also said that the houses that are around this area DO NOT have roofs! If they make attempts to build roofs then it somehow collapses. Well, talk about a dark force that exists and this place takes position number 1. Travel to Rajasthan and try to explore this part of it.

2. Dumas Beach, Gujarat

What once was a burial ground for the dead, is now a beach and among the most haunted places in India! This is close to Surat and it is found that on crossing a certain mark on the beach, you’re only entering unknown territory that you must not trespass! Many people have reportedly gone missing and many others have lost their lives as well. It is a beach for the souls, definitely not for you to offer yours!

So, if Gujarat was ever on your list? You might want to consider this.

3. Shaniwarwada Fort, Pune

Built during the Peshwa dynasty, this fort has umteen stories to tell you of the period that was, thus making it one of the most haunted places in India. One of the most tragic events that took place was the death of an heir that was to take charge of the throne. Having been killed by his close relatives, the feeling of deceit still floats around this fort. It is said that one can still hear the cries of help by the prince at night.

Maharashtra is definitely known for it’s forts and we now know what not to miss!

A very popular place that has showbiz written all over it along with “supernatural activities” as well. If witnesses are to be believed then they have spotted lights falling off, light men being pushed down, food scattered in hotel rooms etc. If this wasn’t enough, there are messages written on walls or mirrors which are strange and shouldn’t be there in the first place. Women are targeted more than the men and they’ve felt slaps across their faces, clothes trying to be ripped off and many such violent behaviors has been observed. If you want to experience it first hand, this is the most haunted place that you can be to.

5. Terra Vera, Bangalore

Terra Vera

Built in 1943 by EjVaj, this old mansion was gifted by him to his two daughters; Dolce and Vera. Dolce was a piano teacher! Their lives came crashing down in 2002 when Dolce was stabbed to death in that very house. Her body was buried within the premises of this very property; after which her sister Vera fled from the place. It is said that there are some unruly activities taking place in this mansion.

From people hearing the piano play to other weird presence that surrounds the place. On looking into this closely, people even found an inverted cross inside the house. Apart from this, there were many statues of Jesus but with their heads removed! If this isn’t the most haunted places, then what is? Just typing this out is giving me the shivers, I wonder how it would be to really experience this!

So, if you’re looking for a different kind of an adventure then these are places you might want to consider traveling to! Of course, Halloween will come to an end in a few days but the tales of these places only continue to live. If you would like to visit any of these haunted destinations, feel free to reach out to us and we will get back to you shortly before THEY come and get you!
