Spooky Encounters

It was late at night and I was driving down a solitary lane along with two of my friends. It was cool and calm outside and unexpectedly, the wind started blowing; we thought it was a normal irregularity of Delhi’s unpredictable weather but suddenly we saw a woman clad in a white Saree standing on the roadside. I kept driving on without looking at her as I had heard about a few spooky instances happening on this particular road. After travelling ahead we gathered all our strength and looked back and what we saw drained our blood and a chill ran down our spine. We saw the woman stuck to the boot of our car staring at us with her bloodshot eyes. I looked straight ahead and drove as fast as I could without looking back again until I had traversed that patch completely. 

It is then that we caught our breath and found that the woman had disappeared. Seems like a Bollywood movie, but this is one of the many instances narrated by Delhiites about the ghosts and spirits found on the roads, abandoned houses, mansions, parks, monuments etc. So for those who believe in the presence of ghosts, here are a few places listed where you can find them.

The Tree near Dwarka, Sector 9 Metro Station

People travelling in call centre cabs at night have experienced an energy slapping them and a woman appearing and disappearing or travelling along with the speed of the car. Yes, it sounds creepy but according to many, it’s true.

Delhi Cantonment

A lush green area managed by the security services of our country is supposedly a shelter for a spirit of a lady who died in a car mishap there. Many people have confirmed her presence time and again clad in a white saree with greying hair and hairy hands, trying to get the attention of various passers-by.

House No. W-3

It is an abandoned house located in South Delhi where an aged couple were murdered a decade ago. Various sounds ranging from sobs to screams emanate from the house as reported by the neighbours. Similar haunted houses can be found in Defence Colony, Green Park, Lajpat Nagar, Lodhi Road and many places where properties worth crores have been deserted since decades due to the paranormal activities happening in them.

Feroz Shah Kotla

The first impression that you get after a brief look at the Feroz Shah Kotla fort, is that of a haunted place, especially, because it does not see many visitors today. The fort was built back in 1354 by Feroz Shah Tughlaq, who built Firozabad (one of the seven cities of Delhi). It is situated on Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, where a narrow lane leads to this macabre citadel. This site is said to have Djinns residing in the ruins and the dark halls. Every Thursday, one can see the locals lighting candles, incense sticks, leaving offerings of milk & grain and writing letters to appease the djinns hoping for their wishes to come true.

Khooni Nadi (Bloody River)

This flows across Rohini in Delhi and it is believed that whoever enters the river is sucked inside it by a mysterious force. Many have lost their lives there which appears to be suicide; the reason behind this phenomenon is still unknown.

Sanjay Van

Sanjay Van is a stretch of about 10 Kms, a green lung of the city but also known to be haunted by spirits as it houses innumerable Majaars (masouleums of sufi saints) & graves punctuated with broken ramparts of Qila Rai Pithora. Many encounters of crying children, pushing and clawing has been reported here ever since its existence.

Malcha Mahal

Located in a village called Malcha, this place is surrounded by forests and what is known as the Delhi Ridge. It was originally a Tughlaq era hunting lodge and currently very little is known about its mysterious inhabitants. This is what adds to the enigma of Malcha Mahal and by merely being near the place amidst the dense forest, you can experience that eerie feeling you may never expect anywhere else.

Mutiny House

A memorial built by the British to commemorate the death of their officials in the revolt of 1857, people have found chopped-up moving arms and legs of the deceased officials in the evenings. It truly must be a ghastly sight for those who have witnessed it first hand.

Mutiny Memorial | In front of the Old Telegraph Building, Kashmiri Gate, New Delhi-55

Bhuli Bhatiyari ka Mahal

An old hunting lodge of Tughlaq, the name of this place is said to be derived from Bu-Ali Bhatti's name (the female caretaker of the lodge) which got twisted to Bhuli Bhatiyari. The entry to the monument from the North-East, interestingly, is twin-gated, strange for a structure that is deemed 'not so' important. It has remained abandoned and left unoccupied for centuries and is known to be haunted with various sounds and invisible shuffling activity around this part of the ridge.

Karbala Graveyard

Karbala is a Shiite burial ground in BK Dutt Colony for the funeral of tazias, the ritual coffins of Imam Husain Ibn Ali (the prophet’s grandson). If you look carefully, you’ll be able to clearly see the auspicious material (or whatever remains of them now) used to perform the rituals on or near a couple of graves. There is an eerie and gloomy ambience about this place, marked by cries and a certain loneliness which may get to you especially if visited during the evenings. 

Karbala Graveyard | Karbala Rd, Civil Colony, BK Dutt Colony, New Delhi-03

The Ridge

The Delhi ridge, an extension of the Aravalli Hill Range in NCT of Delhi is a haunting rocky & hilly, forested area where some of the most gory events of history took place. One can witness firangi ghosts still hovering the ridge, marking their territory. It is notorious for its moody ghosts and be careful as parts of the Ridge don't get any network.

The Ridge | Timarpur, New Delhi-54

Jamali Kamali Tomb & Mosque

Located within the folds of Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Jamali, the renowned sufi saint was buried here in 1535 alongside Kamali. You get an unsettling feeling once inside the chamber of the tomb and can also experience all kinds of noises calling out to you from the nearby graves, marking it unsafe to visit during night time.

Jamali Kamali Tomb & Mosque | Mehrauli Archaeological Park, New Delhi-30

Other places include Khuni DarwazaTughlaqabad Fort, Chor Minar, Malcha Mahal & certain areas of Tilak Nagar.

Nicholson's Cemetery

This is one of the oldest cemeteries in town, dating back to the British era and there are a lot many graves of British soldiers, their wives and children buried here. As you walk inside, the first thing that strikes you is that the entire place is engulfed in pin-drop silence however often you can feel a nagging presence lurking and following you, hidden behind the huge tamarind trees and palm trees found here. You can ignore their presence but just make sure that they don't follow you home. 

Nicholson's Cemetery | Club Road, Civil Lines, New Delhi-54

Based on word-of-mouth experiences, these places have received the notoriety of being haunted. It is believed that positive and negative energies work hand-in-hand. Moreover, beliefs cannot be explained as they emanate from our mind and are embedded in our hearts. We cannot test the truth or falsity of the metaphysical realms. So, whether you believe in ghosts or not, just be mentally alert and careful while crossing these places or else you may have to face the consequences.

Not right

I don't believe in paranormal activities. We all used to stay in Dwarka, Sector 9 & I worked in a BPO, in the night shift. I always rode my bike near the metro station but I never ever felt the presence of any kind of spirit. I also request all not to believed in this as now we staying in South Delhi and have never faced any such paranormal activities.

My experience

One of my friend told me that there is one tree which is in the middle road in Dwarka. When someone tried to cut those tree, he dies on the spot from a heart attack. I don't know if it's true or not because I have never experienced such things. When I was small, my neighbour (newly shifted) on Diwali had some relatives of theirs do black magic on them - they mixed some ash or something in their food and when they ate that food they died..and now that same property I came to know has been handed over to those relatives.

Sanjay Van

We, a team of three went to Sanjay Van and created a video which we uploaded on YouTube by the name of Sanjay Van Haunted by Crazyventures. We didn't find anything unusual there but a few days later we again revisited it as we were cerebrating one of our birthdays and had a spooky experience - We headed towards the watch towers to have a glimpse of South Delhi at night. We were talking and what i heard from the bushes and trees was someone repeating our words. I thought that might be the effect of alcohol or echoes even but when we moved ahead again the same thing happened! We moved on and again me and my friend could hear some one producing unusual, noisy and weird sounds. I lost control and shouted with full energy. Then, i felt nauseated and started vomiting and requested to go outside. We all came outside to the institutional area and everything became fine. I breathed a sigh of relief on getting out from there!

The graveyard

Once when I was driving, near a graveyard I saw a child crying. I didn't believe in ghosts then so I didn't get suspicious and went to comfort him. When I reached closer he suddenly turned into a terrifying ghastly creature. I was shocked and took a few steps backward. It suddenly disappeared and in its place I saw a grave of some Ashok Kumar 2001-2006. I ran back to my car and quickly got out of that place. It spooked me out for long time and I couldn't sleep at night. From then onwards I always find fear seeping through me at the mere thought of the incident

Check it out

Just watch the movie called The Conjuring and also search for demonologist called Ed and Lorraine Warren. See its true demons exist in the form of exorcism...if u believe in God then believe in the devil too.

What do you guys say?

I am a 23 year sales & marketing guy, more over I visited all the listed places in night/ day, I do stay near by North Campus Ridge area, where suicidal & murder acts have been committed, but frankly speaking I didn't see any incident happening as I used to drive my car daily around 12 A.M near by this area. Apart from Cops and PCR's I didn't see anything more than that. For all my friends who believe in all this or claimed such incidents do believe in one, either God or the Paranormal. Suppose if you are heavily drunk, then you might be the biggest ghost in this world and I need to ask one question from all listed paranormal activist & believers "Why has nobody seen or admitted ghosts, spooky and unnatural activity in Temples, Gurudwara's, Mosques or Churches? Why? Is the ghost scared of God? Or we have a mind set according to places which we see? Need all your comments on the same.

Yeah if you believe in God and you know that god really exists then you have to accept that ghosts also exist and if you want to experience it and want to know if it's true or not, just check Wikipedia and search about Ed and Lorraine Warren, you will definitely accept that its not a joke.

Lajpat nagar house

I don't know where to begin. Me and my brother actually wanted to see this place as we had heard a lot about it. So on Sunday night on 31st July 14 around 1 AM, we reached that place and I was a little excited to do so, so I asked my brother that why don't we just get in the house and see for ourselves. I was at the gate of that bungalow when a couple of boys standing near by asked my brother to step aside as the bungalow was possessed. I clicked some pics and to my surprise there was something that changed places, can't say what, but I definitely saw something. People say that once there lived a family which was murdered and that bungalow was burnt and since then no one has taken over that place.

I was on my way back to my house in the night around 2 AM and as I was driving I found a lady who wore a white saree and she started running behind me and as I was alone in the car, I did not stop my car and increased the speed but she ran behind me for about 200 meters and then disappeared.

A haunting!

One night, me and my friends went on a bike ride along the Dwarka Sector 9 metro station to hang out and have some fun, we were four of us. All of us were screaming, shouting, the usual thing that boys do when they go out on a bike ride together, and while we were doing so, we heard a shrill sound from somewhere, we brushed it off and took it as a joke, thinking someone was making a fool out of us. My friend Ashish started making fun of the whole thing and all of us were having a good laugh,until suddenly a lady comes out of no where and she scares the shit out of us by heading towards us and although she was far, we felt as if she'd come close to our ears and was sobbing. Then we got really paranoid, got on our bikes and tried to leave the haunted place ASAP, but as we were riding we weren't able to get rid of the screeching sound that followed us for quite a while along the stretch and then we reached our respective places. We couldn't get the incident out of our minds and we were unable to sleep for quite a few days either, my friend Ashish freaks out every time we go to Dwarka sector 9 till today. This event took place during the winter season last year around 1.30 AM.

Usually you do feel a dip in the temperature when there is a supernatural force around you and this is exactly what I had witnessed when I was in Delhi, during the scorching summers, that too. There was definitely something eerie about the area I was staying in (GK).

Flying Fire Pot

I don't believe in ghosts because I haven't seen one yet but I was having dinner at 10:45 PM in my home town in Ludhiana. My brother was on the roof talking to his GF. Suddenly he started shouting my name and asked me to rush on the roof...first, I was annoyed but then I too witnessed something unexplainable. I saw a pot with fire flames coming out of it which was flying like 100 meters above the ground and was travelling towards a a chopper flies at a constant speed. I was shocked to see it. How could a fire pot fly at the same height and speed and towards a straight direction. I am damn sure that it was not a wishing lamp because wishing lamps or hot balloons fly up and do not travel at a fixed height...then I came to know that it was a black magic trick known as "seet" In Punjabi it means to "throw". If u want to kill someone, you seek a person who knows black magic who would then perform some spells on the person in question. It will travel straight to his/her address and will get him. If the person is not at home it will come back to the person who sent it and will kill him...scary!
