  1. Bhangarh Fort: Bhangarh fort is the most famous haunted place in India. Bhangarh Fort might be famed for its haunted and mysterious presence but it can be visited as a place that is beautiful and pleasant. People say Bhangarh fort is not for the easily frightened faint-hearted people. According to the folk tales, Bhangarh Fort is the dwelling of ghosts and that is why the entry is prohibited for tourists or visitors to the fort before sunrise and after sunset.
    The visitors are asked to leave the place before sunset. The fort’s main entrance is locked and Government has placed a notice board at the main gate which reads that ” visiting the fort before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited and if rules are violated legal action would be taken”.
    There is a rumor that spirits roam in Bhangarh Fort at night. People often hear strange noises screaming, crying voice of women, bangles sound in the rooms and they reported many weird and scarcely credible incidents like some one’s talking and a special smell is felt.

Timing – 6 am-6.30pm or sunset, whichever is earlier

  1. Grand Paradi Towers, Mumbai: Built in 1975, the three towers at Kemps Corner offer one of the most spectacular views of the city. For long considered one of Mumbai’s most coveted addresses – a flat here is valued at Rs 40,000 a square foot – Grand Paradi is home to several diamond merchants and Gujarati, Marwari and Sindhi businessmen. An apartment in Grand Paradi is indicative of enviable wealth and status.

Not surprising then that financial reasons have led to most of the suicides. There had been more than 20 horrendous and fatal accidents and suicides at the triple towers since the building was constructed in 1975. Many of these accidents involved children. Even a housemaid was involved in an accident and it’s still not clear if she leaped or fell out from the window. These freakish incidents have created an uneasiness in the society and many believe the towers to be frightening, mysterious and haunted. There has been a succession of havans and puja conducted in the flat on the eighth floor, in which three generations of the same family leaped to their death. The flat is sealed off and still remains to be unoccupied.

Timing – Until and unless you are very brave-hearted, don’t think of spending time after sunset.

Entry Fees – No fees

How to reach: Located in one of the most affluent areas, easily approachable and famous.

Local town folk believes that this beach is the site of an ancient Hindu cremation ground, and is haunted by ghosts.

Many visitors have reported seeing some mysterious things and hearing giggles and peals of laughter.

The GP Block is haunted by the ghosts of four men who are often sighted in a double storey building, which has been abandoned for years.
