Delhi is the capital city of India and is a vast historical place too. However, it is also known for its dark side, as it has one of the highest crime rates. Another side that that haunts citizens is its collection of so-called haunted places, which people feel scared to visit.
India is a diverse nation that has all a citizen could ask for. Same goes for its capital city, Delhi, which is historical in itself.
However, it also possesses some places which might not be historical, but yet fancy people and travellers for the weird reason, for being haunted. On the same note, we take a look at some of the most haunted places in the capital city.
Chor Minar: The Delhi Sultanate has a dark past, as it was used to hang the head of the criminals on spikes and place it in the holes of this structure. People say that the cries of the afflicted souls could still be heard at night.
Mutiny Memorial: This memorial was built in 1857 to honour the British soldiers, who lost their lives during the revolutionary revolt in the same year. Consequently, many Delhites say that numerous wandering souls have often been spotted roaming around the memorial.
Bhuli Bhatiyari Ka Mahal: Near the market of Karol Bagh is situated a hunting lodge, where a woman named Bu-Ali Bhatti lived. However, she died after she was ignored by the king she lived with. To date, people believe that her soul wanders at this abandoned place to protect it and even scares people during day time.
Dwarka Sector 9 metro station: Now, this is weird. As for the station itself, it is an active one. However, it has an odd dark story, as many travellers have said about a child poltergeist at a nearby banyan tree, who scares the hell out of people, mainly after midnight.
Khooni Darwaza: Bloddy Gate when translated in English, it used to be a place for brutal murders and being left for vultures to be fed. Mughal emperor Jahangir began the tradition by killing sons of Abdul Rahim Khan-i-Khanan. Later, in 1947 during partition, some refugees were killed on their way to the camp at the Old Fort. Since then, people have experienced being shoved away by invisible forces.
Delhi Cantonment: Another bustling place during the day. However, as darkness falls upon this place, people have narrated stories of a female in a white sari hitchhiking, while she even unappeasably chases down the vehicle, if turned down.
