At some point of time, we have all wondered whether the abnormally white ghosts shown on Indian televisions actually do exist! But there is no wondering about what happens after we watch those ghosts….

India has a crazy history of emperors and rulers who constructed many architectural wonders during their reign. Now that they are all gone, their tombs and monuments look like massive and mysterious structures that hide secrets from the past. That is probably why most of the historical sites in INDIA are declared haunted. But the invisible can exist in any places they like; from old monuments to modern homes.

If you like to explore the world of supernatural and like the kind of adrenaline rush one gets just thinking about it, then here is a list of places you should explore!




Some call it the most haunted place in India and the ones who have been there, reveal their experience with Goosebumps! This fort, built in the 17th century by Man Singh I (one of the navratans of Akbar ‘court) is located on the border of the Sariska Reserve in the Aravali range of hills in Alwar district of Rajasthan. Legend has it that a long ago, a wizard tried to cast a spell on the beautiful princess of Bhangarh – Ratnavati by replacing the perfume in her bowl by a magic potion. The princess realized this and threw the bowl at a giant boulder which eventually crushed the wizard. But before he died, he cursed the entire city and said that no one would be able to survive. That is exactly what happened and it is said the spirits of the people who got killed still linger around the fort.
