So, I provide you with some of the haunted places and their stories to make you think of visiting this place or not.
1. House No. W-3, Greater Kailash: An old couple was murdered ruthlessly inside this house. And what’s haunting is that they return as ghosts to reclaim their house. This is the house located in New Delhi’s Greater Kailash area. Local people hear strange voices and subdued murmurs issuing from within the otherwise desolate house in question. Some muffled laughter emanates erratically from the house, every now and then. Besides, the dizzying heaviness which permeates the air around the house can hardly be accounted for, without accounting for the paranormal element.
2. Jamali Kamali Tomb and Mosque: There are the mausoleums of the 16th century Sufi saints Jamali & Kamali in the Mehrauli Archaeological Park. Here, voices can be heard which call out to the visitors from the mazaar inside the central dome of the mausoleum. There are often complaints of an invisible gaze deftly following the moments of the visitors.
3. Delhi Cantonment: It is known to be the most haunted place in Delhi. A middle aged woman was killed at this place so it’s ghost roam around this area in a white sari and asks for a lift.
