It’s amazing the way we let our fears devour us, and yet we chase them wholeheartedly. Anecdotes about the most haunted, creepy, and mysterious places often seem prosaic, and we often wonder how true they’re. We also hear stories from our distant friends and courageous uncles about ghost and paranormal activities and dare ourselves if we’d ever go there.
But if you’re a braveheart and someone who’s willing to go the distance to see the spookiest places in India, then here’s a list for you.
Rana Kumbha Palace, Rajasthan
Souls that were tortured once still haunt this place. The eerie atmosphere that hovers over Rana Kumbha Palace is due to the self-immolation that happened years ago by the queen and her 700 followers. People often spot women in royal attire with a burnt face asking for help.
