Being an adventurist, I have explored many cities and places in India and outside India. Constantly being on roads has made me the man of iron hearts to the fact during my ventures I have encountered countless unimaginable situations, which one fear to encounter and it is because of them today I realise my true potential and capabilities, a new version of myself which brave and fearless.

Interestingly whenever I used to travel, the local folks are the ones who excites me the most. They really have vivid stories to tell, although I am not a affirm believer of paranormal or supernatural power after paying a personal visit to these sites, they really shock me away.

But before heading any forward it is obvious to question, I might be faking my experience. And if not does really paranormal or supernatural power exist? Can they be felt?

I also taught there was no paranormal or supernatural power, but when I was at these places, I was literally astonished, I felt my heart and soul were beginning to paralyzed and chanted to all the gods that I know at that moment. I know these are very subjective question and depends on individual believes and thoughts and values. But hey! I am here to share the “top 5 Haunted places of India” or “the smokiest and shady places in India”. if anyone is interested and go there and have fun if they can.

Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan

Bhangarh Fort is in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. During the rule of Bhagwat Das in 1573, the town was established. It is at a distance of 3hr 30min from the capital of India, New Delhi.

The two most popular stories among many are, the first mythical story is that a sadhu named Guru Balu Nath lived inside the fort and Man Singh I who built the fort was sought his permission to build the fort. With a condition ‘that under no scenario should the fort create a shadow over Sadhu house and if it happens city will perish. Man Singh-I swore on this but the descendants failed to keep the oath.

The second and more popular story is that the attention caught by the Tantrik over the beautiful Princess Ratnavati. She kept refusing him on his unsuccessful attempt. Tantrik resorted to using magic on Princess by hiding a love potion in perfume. But she came to know of this and she poured the entire bottle over a big rock and which crushed the Tantrik. At his last breath, the Tantrik placed a curse over the town. The site is so dangerous that even the public and government authorities discourage stepping into the Bhangarh Fort after dark, It better you visit the fort prior to 6 pm every day.

Kuldhara, Rajasthan

There is another place in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, which is claimed to be haunted, it’s the Kuldhara village, which was originally inhabited by Paliwal Brahmins. Although, the village has been abandoned for over 200 years old, nevertheless, the houses and temples found here are in near-perfect condition.

As to test, whether Kuldhara village is really haunted place or not, some people from Delhi’s Paranormal Society had stayed there for one night, completely geared up with the latest equipment to record any paranormal activity if happens and after spending good hard 12 hours, the experts did not only record unusual activities but also spotted shadowy figures in the night. Interestingly, one of the team members felt a shoulder tap, but in reality, no one was around him.

After being scientifically proven, now the village attracts numerous tourist who has a great deal for the day by siting the ruin places along with here there clicks, but no one dares to stay in the village after sunset.

Dow Hill, Kurseong, West Bengal

Dow Hill is a small hill station that is about 30 km away from Darjeeling, and possess natural beauty which includes many tea gardens, waterfalls, valleys and botanical gardens that is the way is a traveller gets attracted to this spot.

Despite the natural beauty of Dow Hill, it is better known for its haunted tales of the hill station and the vacation gateway. There is a school near this area which is flourished with numerous deaths. Locals here believe that the spirits will not spare anyone and thus their days are spent in worry and anxiety. In particular, the road that links the school is called "the death road" where a headless boy is often believed to be seen following the visitors. The headless boy silently follows the person, walks down towards the road and then suddenly disappears into the woods, leaving everyone in shock.

Agrasen Ki Baoli, New Delhi

Agrasen Ki Baoli is situated near Connaught Place in Delhi. This site is one of the most protected monuments by the government in association with the Archaeological Survey of India. Despite being an architectural masterpiece, people affirm that the Baoli is a domicile of devils. Not only this, even the tourist has complained about uncanny dreadful feeling, once they step inside.

Shaniwar Wada, Pune

Shaniwar Wada, Pune

Shaniwarwada is a historical fortification in the city of Pune, Maharashtra. Built-in 1730 for Bajirao I, it was the home of the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire until 1818. A large part of the fort’s structure gets destroyed, the only part that survived is still open for tourists to see. The important thing about Shaniwar Wada is the haunted story that is often whispered by the people. Narayanrao, who was the fifth and ruling Peshwa in 1773, was murdered by guards on orders of his uncle and aunt. During the time of death, Narayanroa constantly cried for help shouting "Kaka mala vachava"(Uncle, save me). From that very day, local kins sighted Narayanrao's ghost still calling for help on full moon nights. Tourists might not find anything spooky during the day, but the night gives Shaniwar Wada a scary feel.

So, these are the top five haunted places of India, I will recommend you to visit these spooky places and feel the presence of supernatural power, but at your own risk. Later you don’t have to blame me, otherwise, I will suggest stay safe and stay home…..
