You might have heard of various haunted places across the world and surprisingly there are a lot of such ghostly places in India as well. If we go by the ghost stories of each region in India, the list is endless. Here we have tried to short list the best and most haunted ones. So, without wasting a single minute let us quickly go through the list of The Most Haunted and Spookiest Places in India.
Bhangarh is a place on the way from Jaipur to Alwar city in Rajasthan. The haunted ruins of Bhangarh are also listed in the most haunted places in the world. It is a place known for it’s ruins where nobody dares to stay after sunset. Going to history we find that this town was established by Madho Singh, younger brother of King Akbar’s General Man Singh, in 1631. But the city seems to have been abandoned in a hurry some centuries later. The locals say that “due to some curse the whole town was vacated overnight. It was also said that if the town was ever rediscovered, the township would not be found, but only temples would show up.” True to the story, only temples dot the landscape and even far up on the mountains only shrines can be seen. People say that nobody returned from there who stayed there after dark. The biggest thing is that as per Govt. of India rules there has to be an office of Archaeology Survey of India (ASI) beside every historical structure in India. But even Government authorities couldn’t dare to open an office there and they opened their office about one kilometer away from the ruins of Bhangarh. Also ASI has put a signboard at Bhangarh saying, “Staying after sunset is strictly prohibited in this area.” People who visit this place out of tourist interest say that there is a strange feeling in the atmosphere of Bhangarh, which causes sort of anxiety and restlessness. Many people swear by the paranormal activities witnessed in the fort area like musical and dancing sounds.
