If all these places fascinate you, then you must relate to this post, where I have compiled some of the haunted places. So, without any further ado, let us start with the compilation.
Most Haunted Places In The World
Dominican Hill, Baguio City, Philippines
The first name on the list is Philippines’ Dominican Hill. It is said that many people lost their lives here at the time of war, and those who survived, had painful deaths. Many believe that spirits still ramble here, making it a haunted palace. Many people have heard different types of sounds in the palace, like screaming in pain, door knocks, breakdown of utensils.
The Aokigahara Forest in Japan is famous as a suicide forest. Hundreds of people commit suicide here every year. Police run an annual campaign to remove all the corpses of the people who commit suicide here, but they do not disclose the number of corpses they recover in the fear that the numbers would inspire people to further suicide.
There’s a story behind the suicides that take place here. Those who have sued here, their spirit remain here. However, there’s a story that says, in ancient Japan, when some people were unable to feed themselves, they were left in this forest, and they all died due to hunger. It is believed that the same ghost hunts people down who go to this forest.
Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan, India
Bhangarh Fort is an abandoned fort in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. It is among the most haunted places in India. The story behind its misery revolves back to the 16th century. Ratnavati, the princess of this fort, was an exhilarating beauty, and her outrageous beauty got all over a Tantrik’s head who wanted to marry her at any cost. Therefore, he started using some magic to win the heart of the princess.
The princess somehow got aware of his evil plans and ordered her sepoys to kill him. However, the Tantrik had become insane till then of Ratnavati’s beauty, and before dying he cursed the residents of the village to die and the houses of the village to remain roofless. Even today, if a roof is built in Bhangarh, it collapses. This spooky story is enough to state that Bhangarh Fort is the most haunted place in India.
