#TravelBytes: 5 haunted places in Delhi for a spine-chilling experience
If you claim yourself to be a travel junkie, and haven't had your share of experience with the haunted destinations, mysterious screams, horrifying ruins, and totally spine-chilling feels, we urge you to reconsider your claim. Exploring haunted places isn't everyone's thing, but the thrill and adrenaline rush it offers, is unmatched. Here are 5 haunted places in Delhi that'll give you a spine-chilling experience.
The place not to be at, during night time
The 10 Km stretch forest area of Sanjay Van, near Vasant Kunj, is a favorite among children and nature seekers during the day, but it's not the place to be at, during night time. Among other things, you might witness sudden pushes, resounding slaps, fog in summers, horrifying elderly women in white, and shrill, evil laughs of invisible children. Fun or not? You decide.
Woman ghost in white saree may chase down your car
Many have claimed to have seen a ghastly woman wearing a white saree asking for a lift, and in case her request is turned down, she might start running along your car at matching speed. Though otherwise considered quite a safe area of Delhi, Delhi Cantonment surely gets a bad rep as far as non-human entities doing the rounds at midnight are concerned.
The British-era cemetery is home to a headless ghost
Just the idea of heading to a burial ground during night time can give chills to the best of us. But there's more to this British-era cemetery in Kashmere Gate area of Delhi. According to some people, a headless ghost roams around the area at nights. By-passers also claimed to have heard laughs and cries coming out of the creepily haunting place.
As if the name itself wasn't scary enough
The place where the Khooni Darwaza is situated is exactly where the British publicly executed the three surviving sons of the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, and several freedom fighters. Many believe that the ghosts of the three princes and the many freedom fighters still haunt the place. Horrifying screams and cries have been heard at the place, many a times.
The step-well of death!
An important historical monument of Delhi, Agrasen ki Baoli has a lot to offer. The 104-level step-well is claimed to be one of the most mysterious and haunted places in the national capital. Legend has it that the place has hypnotized many into committing suicide by jumping in the well. One may even feel the presence of invisible beings and hear mysterious voices there.
