The world has many layers to it and even though we might think that we know almost everything about it, it might be just the tip of the colossal iceberg. You must have been to some amazing places in your life for vacations but have you ever thought of some parts or places of the world which have a dark history and the legends related to them might just send chills down your spines. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at 5 of the most haunted places in the world and if challenges are what you love then you might go and visit them as well.
1. Poveglia Island, Venice, Italy. This one undoubtedly deserves to be on number one considering the kind of things that people have witnessed here. The beautiful island was once a quarantine zone for the people who were suffering from the plague. They were burnt and buried alive there. And, as if that was not enough, in the 20th century, the island was turned into an asylum and it is said that the place was full of ghosts which made the Doctor of the asylum do strange things and they ended up taking his life. Even now, the place is doomed and the visitors who have been there have reported seeing fleeting and dark shadows. Some have even claimed that they felt the presence of something evil as soon as they stepped on the island.
2. Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan, India. The history of this place is no hidden fact and that is why it is known as one of the most-haunted places in the world. Legend has it that there used to be a tantrik, Singhia, who tried using black magic to win the heart of the Princess of Bhangarh, Ratnavatil. But when she got to know about his evil plans, she ordered him killed. Before breathing his last, he cursed the entire village of dying and remaining roofless their entire lives. Even now, if a roof built in that area it collapses.
3. Raynham Hall, Norfolk, England. This beautiful country home has a deep dark past which makes it one of the spookiest places of the world. Known as the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall, the ghost makes its presence felt and many have witnessed the same. In the 1936 edition of Country Life, a British weekly magazine, they claimed that they have captured the photo of the ghost on camera and it is named Brown lady because she was wearing a dress of the same colour. Legends suggest that the ghost is of Lady Dorothy Walpole who was the sister of the first PM of Great Britain, Robert Walpole.
4. Fern Hill Hotel, Ooty, India. This hotel of Ooty doesn’t have a legend but some real-life experiences of people. Remember the hotel in Raaz in which Bipasha Basu aka Sanjana stays? Well, it’s the same hotel and it is said that during the shoot of the film, when the cast was sleeping at night, they heard some noise on the first floor and when next day they asked about the same, the hotel staff informed them that there is no first floor there which left everyone shocked. This is just one of the many incidents that took place there which eventually led to the shut down of the hotel.
5. Tao Dan Park, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The place is a paradise for those who love natural beauty in the day as it has over 24 acres of gardens, but by night, this place becomes haunted. The locals say that there used to be a man who was killed in an attack and ever since then he comes to the park every night to look for his lost love.
