If you’re someone who has a thirst for knowledge of the unknown and would like to know about them up close and personal, then here are 10 places in India not for the faint-hearted!
1. Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan.
This town with the majestic fort is apparently one of the most haunted places in India- so much so that the Government has made it off-limits during sunset to sunrise. The story goes that, a magician fell in love with the princess and cast a spell on the land, to get her attention. When the princess got to know of this, she had him killed. But before dying, the magician cursed the land such that no one would be able to stay there. And from that time, the village and the Fort are not inhabited by anyone. Furthermore, if any temple or house is built, the roof is said to collapse. Although not many could stay the night, those who have, reported hearing footsteps and the screeching of a woman. Some have also reported having felt a presence over them!
