Feroze shah Kotla Fort
Yet addition to horror places in Delhi, the ruins of what must have been a grand fort once see little crowd today, except for Thursdays. Come Thursday and you will see a steady trickle of djinn believers thronging the place. Once the rituals of praying and leaving wishes written on a letter are over, the fort complex gets eerily silent. It is widely believed that djinns roam free in the fort complex once the sun sets, marking their territory and scaring away anyone who wants to enter the complex. Such is the belief in the story that all the nearby houses are built facing the other side in order to keep the djinns away.
Blood-curdling screams and anguished cries can be heard around this historical monument, many a time. There are many different versions of the reasons behind this ghostly presence in this most exposed haunted place in Delhi, like brutal murder of three princes and hanging of freedom fighters by Englishmen. Whatever the reason is, the sudden drop in temperature and apparitions through walls of this gate can give you chills to the bones.
As if the thought of roaming around in a graveyard is not scary enough, Lothian Cemetery is rumoured to be haunted as well. This is one of the most famous Delhi haunted places as eyewitness accounts from people who have seen “it” are a few. While there are a lot of stories that keep doing the rounds, the possibility of running into a British soldier’s ghost (yes, the headless one who walks carrying his head in his hand) is enough to get goosebumps. As per the story, it is the ghost of General Nicholas, who shot himself in the head after discovering that the woman he loved had married somebody else. His heartbroken soul, as they say, still laments the loss and haunts the cemetery. One tormenting love story this.
Yet another one of haunted places of Delhi, Sanjay Van has a few densely green stretches in Delhi. Lush green, this 10 km strip is peppered with numerous graves and remains of Qila Rai Pithora. While the sight of graves and fort’s remains, now covered in creepers, is scary enough, there have been reports of people hearing cries of children, sighting a lonely woman who disappears suddenly and getting pushed by some invisible force while roaming in Sanjay Van! Sounds like a great night trip idea, right?
Delhi Cantonment is a must if you are fond of chasing movie-like ghosts. One of the more reputable haunted places in Delhi, this is a deserted place that gets all the more desolate in the dark. As per the stories, a woman clad in white often hails motorists for a lift on the stretch. She then chases the ones who do not give her a lift, running at a speed that equals or is more than their vehicles! As for those who oblige and give her a lift, they are never seen again. What ups the chill factor of these stories is the fact that these sightings are reported quite frequently. Locals believe that the spirit is of a woman hitchhiker, who died waiting for help.
A city that has been established and ravaged over centuries, time and again, Delhi has a history that only a few cities in the world can equal. While the stories of these haunted places in Delhi might or might not be true, their history is fascinating. Explore a Delhi that is as thrilling as its past; see if the shadows that people say lurk around these places are for real.
The Haunted Tree Dwaraka sector
Ever driven past the notorious ‘haunted tree’ near the Dwarka Sector 9 metro station in the wee hours of the night? The unfortunate few who have, (including various people who work in MNCs and call centers) had often reported seeing a strange figure literally running with their car or suddenly getting slapped on the face by something (or someone!) they couldn’t see. Spooked yet? Well, these are just some of the spine-chilling tales associated with this tree that start pouring in like crazy the moment you type ‘Dwarka haunted tree’ on the internet.
And if the ghost stories aren’t enough to freak you out of your wits, you might as well know that the tree is responsible for some really nasty bike and car accidents in that curve where it’s located, even in the day! Would you have the guts to go check it out? Creepiness apart, the tree and the adjoining Hindu temple do make for some great places to visit. But make sure you visit in the day!
House Number W-3 Greater Kailash
An elderly, helpless couple are murdered ruthlessly inside their house. The story gets a twist when they return as ghosts to reclaim their house. Looks like a perfect plot for a clichéd Bollywood horror flick. No? A house in New Delhi’s Greater Kailash area has a similar story to recount, though. Local people recount with fear how they hear strange voices and subdued murmurs issuing from within the otherwise desolate house in question. An eerie but muffled laughter emanates erratically from the house, every now and then. Besides, the dizzying heaviness which permeates the air around the house can hardly be accounted for, without accounting for the paranormal element.
Delhi Ridge Area.
it is often accounted by numerous eyewitnesses that a ghost of a British gentleman carrying an old-school rifle stroll around in this haunted area in Delhi. You may feel many times that you are being watched. Low reception of mobile network, eerie stillness in the surrounding, no natural sounds of chirping birds or any form of live, sweet fragrances suddenly encompassing you; all of these things are just the beginning. It’s hard to keep a record of the number of unjustified and unexplained disappearances in the area.
Jamali Kamali Tomb and Mosque.
Located within the precincts of the Mehrauli Archaeological Park are the mausoleums of the 16th-century Sufi saints Jamali & Kamali. Though it is a popular place among the history buffs, it also ranks among the most haunted places in Delhi. There is one thing which is very famous about the place or rather say infamous about the fort. Apart from the architectural grandiose that the place is, there are voices which call out to the visitors from the mazaar inside the central dome of the mausoleum. People who visit this place always complain of an invisible gaze deftly following their movements. Abnormal you say, eh?
It is a palace which was used as a community house in 1600 AD for the villagers. Later on, it became an abandoned place which took on a haunted air, as no one lived there. In 1985, the palace was given to Begum Awadh and her two children, a son and a daughter. The Begum committed suicide in 1993 by swallowing crushed diamonds. It is said that her children, who are now believed to be in their 50s or 60s, continue to live there and, it was for their safety that the government gave permission to shoot anyone who trespassed the property. In fact, there is a board outside the Malcha Mahal that declares the same. The idea of two lonely people living amidst such ruins itself is spooky. They do not come outside and are rarely seen by the locals, which add to the mystery. Hound dogs patrol the area for their safety. Because of all these reasons, no one dares to go near the Malcha Mahal. Also, those who have wandered about in the area have claimed to have experienced some sort of invisible energy which made them uncomfortable. If you wish to experience what is it all about, do visit it, but only during day time.
