Types of ghosts and haunted places in India

If you happen to be one of those people who are believers of the paranormal then why not come to India to explore some of the haunted places India has to offer. India is a nation of believer of gods, demi-gods and at the same breath they are quick to accept that ghosts (called bhoot in Hindi), demons, witches, the possessed and the un-dead exist side by side. Before I tell you some of the most haunted places, here are some of the types of ghosts Indians believe in and you’ll expect to find. They are different to the ones found in the West such goblins, monsters, demons or zombies.

1920 Evil Returns

1920 Evil Returns

Witches (Churels):

These are very common in the villages of the state of Bihar. When I used to visit my grandparents in the villages as a child, my cousins told stories of these witches. It is said that you’ll find these witches on roof tops and floating near the ceiling. They are believed to be unhappy ghosts of women who died during menstruation, childbirth or someone treated badly by her family. They have reversed feet or backwards pointing feet and no mouth. She would possess a man till the man has been drained of all life or charm a man until he dies prematurely.

My real story

I and my brother were playing on the roof top when I realised that we were being watched by a floating half-bodied women from the head. I clearly remember that pretty face of the woman. As soon as I called out to my brother, she disappeared behind the wall. We never saw her again. As I write this post, I am getting goose bumps. I cannot confirm whether she was a “churel” or some other entity.

The invisible types of ghosts:

What scares me the most is those entities that cannot be seen? If you can see something, it’s possible to fight it off perhaps physically but how do you tackle something that you can’t see. For example, strange knocks on doors, whispers, things moved around etc.

My father’s experience

This is a story that my dad told me. As a young boy, my dad used to live in the villages. In the villages many houses are split amongst the brothers as part of their inheritance. Often these houses would have a common passage or corridor to accommodate both sections of the partitioned house. One such corridor existed between my dad’s parents and dad’s brother. One night he wanted to visit his uncle’s down the corridor. Interesting thing about this corridor was that it was very narrow and had no windows, just the 2 doors at both ends and a roof. One night while he as was walking down the corridor, he felt that something had dropped on his shoulder. He put his hand on his shoulder to realise that it was human faeces. Even today, my dad is puzzled of its source. A corridor with no opening, no windows; how could human faeces get there and drop from the ceiling on his shoulder? Absolutely bizarre and spooky. By the way my dad does not believe in ghosts or god.

Spirits of the dead:

The central dogma of Hinduism is the recycle of birth. Once a body dies, the soul lives on and rebirths in another body till it attains moksha (Nirvana or free from the recycle of birth). So, there are two things that can happen to the departed soul; rebirth in another body or attain moksha. However, some believe that the soul of those who have died a sudden or horrible death might linger on and will torment the living.

Jinns or genies:

Although the concept of Jinn is a Muslim one and is popular in neighbouring Islamic Republic of Pakistan, nonetheless, it does find space in Hindu India as well due to centuries of Islamic rule. Jinns are supernatural spirits that live side by side with humans. Some are just mere spectators while some have evil designs and occasionally inclined to harm humans. Some Islamic holy men of the Sufi order would advice to wear a “taweej” or talisman to provide protection from the jinn.

Rakshasa (demons):

They are supposed to be mythical characters found in Hindu and Buddhist literature and holy books. They are often depicted as ones who tormented the gods. There were constant battle between the gods and Rakshasa (demons). Is it said that Rakshasa were wicked human beings in their previous lives. Sometimes, criminals are depicted to be rakshasas.

Possession by spirits of the dead:

Who is she?

Who is she?

Some Indians believe that the living can be possessed by the dead. There are certain tell tale signs of the possessed such as sliding eyeballs within the socket, speaking in a strange manner or speaking in the dead person’s voice etc.

My real story

During my visit to my grandparents in the village, I was playing with cousins when we heard our uncle call out to us. We all ran to him to see him and others tying a man to a cot. The man was my granddad’s cow-header. He was speaking in a very strange fashion. When my uncle asked who he was, the cow-header replied that he was a man who lived a few houses away. My uncle thought that he was possessed and did a well known village ritual to get rid of the demon inside this man. The ritual or the brief exorcisms was stuffing some red chillies in the man’s ear, making him drink water from an old shoe and uttering some verses of the holy Lord Hanuman Chalisa. After a while, the man recovered and was unable to recall what had happened. Later that day we learnt that the named man who lived few houses away had passed away. Seems as if the cow-herder was been possessed by the man who had just died. This is a real story and I will never forget it. It’s still scares me.

Note: Some of these experiences are my own and it still frightens me. If you have experienced any paranormal activity through personal experience, feel free to share.

If you are interested in the paranormal or wish to explore haunted sites then here’s a list of the 5 haunted places in India to visit.

Bhangarh fort¸ Rajasthan:

Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan

Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan

Bhangarh Fort is situated near Jaipur in Rajasthan state of India. The fort is considered to be the ruins of what used to be a fortress of a city. The owner of the fort Madho Singh’ son died a violent death. Legend has it that the fort was cursed by Guru Balu Nath who happens to be buried there. Balu Nath had sanctioned the construction of the fort on a strange condition that “the moment the shadows of your palaces touch me, the city shall be no more”. Strangely enough when a prince of the family extended the walls of the palace to a height that casted a shadow on Balu Nath’s forbidden retreat, he cursed the town.

Interesting enough, even the government of India does not allow anyone to enter the forts after dark. The signboard of the government of India has 3 points for those entering the fort. There’s nothing unusual for the second and third points but the first point is rather strange.

(2) Those allowing animals to enter the compounds of the ruins may be prosecuted.
(3) The Kewda or Pandanus trees found in Bhangarh area are protected by the Archaelogy Survey of India. It is forbidden to harm these trees.

Dumas Beach, Gujarat:

Dumas Beach Gujarat, haunted places in India

Dumas Beach Gujarat

Situated on the Arabian Sea on the city of Surat in Gujarat, is one of the most haunted places in India. The site also has a cremation ground and locals say that the spirits of some people do not leave and stay in the air. People have reported strange noises and whispers. People have also disappeared from the beach at night. Locals have reported that dogs bark and howl on the site whole night. It is said that dogs have powerful ability of sense and smell beyond human perception. It is thought these dogs are able to see the spirits of the dead when they are near the sea.

Dow Hill, Kurseong, West Bengal:

Dow Hill, Kurseong, West Bengal

Dow Hill, Kurseong, West Bengal

Kurseong is a hill station situated in Darjeeling state of West Bengal, a popular tourist destination. But hill station has a mysterious association with paranormal activity. There have been numerous murders in the hills of this hill station. Locals have reported strange sightings, footsteps in their homes and mysterious activity. Woodcutters have reported to have seen a headless body of a boy walking on the road and then disappearing in the trees. Locals have also reported to being watched and followed. These strange happenings have been so intense that many have committed suicide.

Raj Kiran Hotel, Lonavala, Maharashtra:

Rajkiran Hotel, Lonavala, Maharashtra

Rajkiran Hotel, Lonavala, Maharashtra

Situated 100 kilometres away from Mumbai is the resort of Lonavala with beautiful landscapes offering trekking and breathtaking views. It is also a home of a haunted guest house called “Raj Kiran Hotel”. Guests have complained of their sheets being pulled during the night. Once a couple visited the hotel and was offered a room on the ground floor which the couple found to be deathly silent. They found the room to be very uncomfortable and asked for a different room. The room is not offered for rent anymore. Address: B Ward, C.S. No.162, Mumbai Pune Road, Lonavala, Pune District, Maharashtra, India

Delhi Cantonment, Delhi:

Many people have reported seeing a ghostly woman in white saree walking around carrying a candle in many parts of Delhi specially the Delhi Cantonment area, sector 9 of Dwarka and near the metro station. It is said that the women was a hitchhiker when she was alive. Now dead, she knocks of the windows of cars asking for lifts. She runs after those who don’t stop. I wonder what she will do if you let her inside the car? I have lived in Delhi and many have spoken about this ghostly lady. We have driven around sector 9 of Dwarka but never saw anything. Another story is that there is a peepal tree near the metro station and the ghost lives under it. The locals have placed images of gods under the tree.

CAUTION: India is a country where folklore, ghostly apparitions, sightings and paranormal activity is common. Therefore any activity that engages ghosts and the unknown is a dangerous activity and not for the faint hearted. Please do so at your own risk.

While we’re on this topic, try this out of body experience

According to my husband, he can actually float out of this body and look down upon himself. To do this, you’ll need to sleep with one hand on your chest. Eventually you’ll float out of your body, and fly to any destination you want and then come back into your body again. The joining of the body and the soul will wake you up. I have tried this experiment and to my amazement, it works.

Finally some questions to answer: Do you believe in ghosts. If yes, could you share of your experiences? Are you tempted to visit some of the haunted places in India?

The movie trailer of the Hindi movie “1920 Evil Returns”. The video sums up the types of ghosts to expect in India. Warning: Do no watch this trailer if you are easily scared.

    Interesting post Shalu, It’ll be difficult for me now to stay awake tonight for work lol.
    other than letting us know about those ghosts and haunted places, you’ve also shared your own personal story with Jurels :D

    I think these type of places are also in countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan where I myself have seen and you’ll be scared If I share my story with you haha.

    Shalu, This story is a little spooky. I do believe we are not alone sometimes. I do not not like haunted places.

    One time my brothers locked me in the back of a funeral home with several caskets, I was only 10, so I freaked out.

    I have gotten better but I would not want to be alone with a dead person. I would think they were looking at me.

    Another time a man died and left his wooden leg around, my brother thought it would be funny to lock me in the bathroom with the leg. Of course I screamed bloody murder.

    As you can see I started out screamed of the dead.

  3. Aasma says:

    Hi Shalu,

    I personally never experienced such kind of incident but I did hear such incidents from my family members, uncle and aunt. I feel myself lucky as I’m not a strong heart girl specially for these incidents.

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      Aasma, thank you for your comment. There is always some some scary feeling associated with these kind of incidents. Do no worry, I a not strong hearted girl either when it comes to ghosts and evil spirits. Thank you for sharing this post.

    Great share, Shalu. This is a good topic you have touched upon. I am thinking from long to visit Bhangarh as it is not too far from Jaipur, but still could not go. I will surely visit it soon and wills hare my experience here.

      • Anand says:

        Shalu, I happened to visit Bhangarh on the 11th of March 2013 after hearing all the hype about its haunted past. Infact, to hear the stories from the horse’s mouth, I hired some locals as guides. Unfortunately, all of them said that the presence of ghosts in the place is more of a media hype than real. It was bit of a let down. Albeit, the place has definitely got atmosphere of a haunted place. The ruins are erie but didn’t get scared as there were too many people around. Most of them locals and all youngsters. The views of the surrounding areas are beautiful from the top of the ruined fort and the place had got some beautiful old destroyed temples. Definitely a must visit for fans of the supernatural, as I said the place has got lots of atmosphere. A point to add, I could not locate the famous signboard of the archeological survey of india. which warns against staying there at night. People say it has been removed after all the hype.

        • Shalu Sharma says:

          Anand
          Lets face it, its about all perception. There could be dead spirits which can be sensed by some while others don’t see it. The famous sign could have been removed by the government as it does attract unwanted attention.

      • Prasanna Kumar says:

        hi

        its very interesting but spirits are there but its all our imaginary

    • Aman Yadav says:

      Dear Abhishek

      I also want to go to Bhangarh and i am looking for people to join me for visit.

    • Achintya says:

      I also feel scary when sleeping alone and i am just 13 years

  5. RAjan says:

    hey.. you have built good site but please tell me that if there was any haunted place in ahmedabad.

  6. Prasad says:

    Hi Shalu
    Generally I do believe ghosts exist . not all souls which leave the body get Mukthi or reincarnate. there are some tramp souls who have unfulfilled desires or have had sudden death , it is all because of karma of oneself. But these spirits can only trouble if we are of less spiritual strength ( not physical ) . ie if we have bad habits and our mind and spirit is weak they can attack us . Souls who are devotees of Gods or saints NEED NO FEAR as their AURA will be such they cant even come near . If we have very strong spiritual strength , we can even relieve these spirits of their misery like Saints like Sai Baba or Jesus do

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      Hi Prasad

      Its good to know what you believe that ghosts exist. Its perfectly possible that they do. If you read some of my personal experiences, they are 100% true and not faked. I did see the half women hovering on the roof top, I did experience the cow herder screaming in a dead man’s voice. So there has to be something there!

      Its amazing that you mention about the spiritual strength to keep these evil spirits at bay. Kindly do share an experience or two of your own if you have any.

      Thank you and best wishes.

  9. Azim Mondal says:

    That is very interesting topic you have discussed here. I have faith on paranormal activity but i found at least 90% is nothing but illusion psychological problem. And regarding Bhangarh its already proved by Indian Paranormal association that nothing is there. I thing government did not remove the board because getting money from tourists

  10. Yeremi Akpan says:

    Hi Shalu,
    Belief in the paranormal has become quite widespread and stories of ghosts sightings cut accross continents.

    Maybe I will believe in them when I get to see a ghost ;)

    But then, I understand that those believes have spurred tourism at a certain level. Well, something for everyone…

  12. Shalu, your post is haunted and spooky. No, really! I have watched numerous videos and films related to such paranormal topics, but was never affected to this degree.

    Honestly, I was a bit panicky while reading through your post (did i mention that I was alone t home while reading this?)

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      Hi Shreyansh
      Quite a story you have here about the woman in the burkha. I think I would get scared as well. If you read some of my experiences you will note that I too have seen certain entities and I feel scared to the day.

    There is phobia of horror movies in me, may be more related to necro one, I don’t know really but whenever I watch these movies I couldn’t sleep.

    Thanks

    Sapna

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      Very right Sapna, we all know that nothings there. But somehow it just plays with our minds. I do get affected by such movies but there are some who do not at all. I wonder how they do it? I was told lot of ghost stories as a child when we went to the villages during summer and Durga Puja holidays hence it must have got to me somehow.

  29. Felicia says:

    Hi Shalu,

    I believe that every country in the world has their set of ghosts and haunted places. I have been amused and fascinated with the paranormal but of course, I would not want to experience any paranormal activity in real life. Thanks for sharing with us the types of ghosts that are common in India, and I am glad nothing happened to you and your brother when you saw that churel in your childhood days.

    It’s a good thing I have not experienced actual and “very serious ghost encounters” in my life so far, although at the end of your post, the out of the body experience you mentioned that happened to your husband, I remember I once had that happen to me too when I was a little girl, or maybe I was just dreaming? Not really sure.

    One “ghostly story” I have was when I was a little girl. I was playing with some friends in an abandoned lot with a house somewhat torn down. We were on its yard when I heard someone saying my name. The voice, I knew, belong to a grown man, but all of us there were little children. I told one of my friends and she said ignore the voice and do not answer, because if I did, it would follow me back home. I’m getting chills just writing this one down…creeeepy..

    I do believe in ghosts and I admit I am a scaredy cat even if I like to watch horror movies.

  33. sohil says:

    To all dears not believing in ghosts, they are real and they exist. I have seen a well digged by a ghost just in one night.

  34. sohil says:

    sometimes in lack of evidence, true things seems false.
    when I was at my farmhouse gaurding farms with my elder brother, at 2 at night, a woman started crying very loudly and in sharp voice about 2 km away from our farms I was surprised woman crying so loudly so I went in direction of voice but feared to go further so came back to house and went to sleep. she cried about 45 mins after there was complete silence. when I woke up in morning, there came a woman who talked with my brother asking about a boy walking in farms at night. she asked about me from where i belonged. her eyes and face was very fearful. when I went back to my aunt’s home she told me not to leave the farm alone without my brother, she told me about a woman believed to be a witch leaving around the farms, she gave me descriptions of the witch same as I met the woman in the morning at the farms. I told this story to every one in home and thereafter I was not allowed to stay at farmhouse at night. do you like this story, do you believe it is true, definitely you won’t. truth is truth for someone who has experienced it. when you will see it and tell someone about it others will also not beleive you. I believe in ghosts and witches bcoz I believe in mahabharat and ramayan. now your turn to roll the dice.

  35. My native place is Alwar Rajasthan and yes Ajafgarh & Bhangarh is Haunted Place

    hi,salu
    i can’t never see such kind of incident but I did hear such incidents from my family members.fantastic website.

  38. Ravi Shankar says:

    I do believe in this paranormal, ET’s and all other stuffs which still remains a mystery(and will be too :)), but unless we experience our own incident there’s no way for us to accept it. I never encountered any such incident but im willing to, it’s always interesting for me to see these kind of movies nd im getting a good sleep too(lucky i think). Anyone in my category here ?

  39. OMG. That was hair raising.
    Definitely.
    Though I do not believe in ghost, spirits and demons, I did find some of your descriptions spooky. Particularly, the first pic of that woman. :D

  40. Lee says:

    Hi
    Some scary stuff there. I will admit I am not a believer in ghosts but just the thought of possession and the sense of the unknown is enough to put the fear of god in to anyone. So I can understand that if you are part of a small community that all believes in ghosts then things could get out of hand very easily.

    Very awakening post thanks lee

  47. Wow, I didn’t know there were so many great haunted spots in India, but when you think about there are tons of spirits everywhere. Especially in a country was old and rich with history.

    I’d love to add some of these places to my haunted locations map, thanks for the ideas I’m going to start researching right away.

    Mrs Shalu Sharma, Mam I belongs to Jaipur, Rajasthan. I want to know that are these paranormal activities does have any ground or they just exist in stories or in long gossips. I personally don\’t think that there is something like that seriously exist. It is just a way to scare ordinary people and nothing else, indeed there are some powers to whom we pray that is god but anything like this (ghosts or other paranormal characters) are just some rubbish stuff people create for there entertainment and to scare and fool common people. I belongs to royal family of Rajasthan and know that little much of paranormal fooling goes here also, but these all activities are nothing but just wastage of energy, time and of capital also. Can’t agree with your recent post, sorry.

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      Rajkuwar Sir,
      The personal stories here are true and none of them have been faked. Its true that a lot of stories are there only for entertainment but these are personal stories that I and my relatives have encountered. Kindly share some of your stories as well. Thank you for yor comment.

    Hi Mrs Shalu,
    I am from Bangladesh. I want to know about the Dow Hill forest. When I used to study in India, my friends and other people of kurseong used to say that Dow Hill forest is haunted infact the Dow Hill School. Is this really true? Like that I don’t beleive in ghosts but I am very interested in hearing this types of stories.
    I will be glad if you say me something about Dow Hill Forest.

  68. Nishant Gurjar says:

    Dear Shalu

    Certainly a very interesting artcile and made for fun reading.

    But i personally have never seen or felt an existence of Ghost, and with due respects i dont think such things even exist.

    Why the govt. of India had banned Bhangarh entrance, would be because people might be stealing or transporting precious wooden resources or alike.

    To beleive in God in 2013 when we have things like facebook, youtube, and Iphone 5 :-) is not only funny but an insult to our intelligence.

    I am from Delhi and i have traveled through the Cantonment area in night many times, with friends in Car (no drinking just fun ride) and we have never came across this funny white saree wearing woman.

    On lighter note, Somebody should tell this so called ghostly woman to not ask lift from delhi men anyways considering delhi is now rape city

    But cutting long story short, i personally feel any such spooky places should be handed over to buidlers and they should break these places and make some fun stuff like malls etc. These dead ruins and buildings are just waste of land.

    thanks

    Good article I do personaly believe there can be such things which are beyond our rational minds!
    Let me tell you my experience not the scary one but the “strange” one. It was in back in May 2006 me and my brother was returning from office late night around 2.30AM we hired auto from dahisar station in mumbai we were passing thru narrow gully and at edge of the road we saw a little boy sitting on pillar which was around the tree he was looking downwards and he was in very good clothes and looks like from wealthy family. cant understand 5 or 6 year old boy sitting on road @ 2.30 at night?
    We didn’t scared but little puzzled but gradually I feel tht was not normal!

    One day when we were sleeping on the roof, my sister got up in night and saw a lady wearing black saree, sitting on the roof wall facing opposite side. My sister rubbed her eyes and confirmed that it is not a dream, she again saw her under the bed sheet and finally slept in fear. In morning she told the whole story.

    We still do not believe on this thing but she keep on saying that it is true.

    Hi Shalu,

    One question if you can answer, when you talk about floating from our body, this is happened with me so many times automatically, whenever I sleep with one hand on my chest, I feel something very strenge happening with me, I feel like my soul is trying to come out of my body that time I can cannot move or even shout. is this the same thing which you are talking about.

    Since I had a fear of this I never let this haapen to me for a longer time and made myself come out of sleep.

    Now I want to do this untill I reach to the point.

    Can you eleborate the destination word, what are this destination where i can visit when I am floating.

    Thanks,
    Raj.

Being an Indian, i did not know that our country has some amazing places… amazing post… Thanks shalu for sharing this information with us. I just known to one place and that is Bhangarh.. I watched this place on News TV channel. They were talking about the paranormal activities out there..

  90. Payal Bansal says:

    Hi Shalu

    First of all, great post and quite scary too. Your real story part is going to scare me too now :p

    I used to watch some ghost shows on TV, but thinking of visiting any such place is ….. Like committing suicide.

    I can share something, it is something related to time. I don’tknow why, but early morning while I am in sleep, I wake up and check the time and It is always 4.30. I do sleep after that, but every time I open my eyes from deep sleep it is 4.30. No matter If I slept at 3 am or 9 pm. Strange and weird

  91. shekhar says:

    hi shalu,
    really nice post and informative.
    I just want to say in reference to a post earlier where the guy STOPPED THE CAR….NEVER DO THAT…
    rule 1…if u see something like this do not stop
    rule 2 ..if it is unavoidable and in emergency u do have to stop do not look back BUT KEEP YOUR VEHICLE IN MOTION AT THAT SPOT MAKING A CIRCLE OR 8.but for gods sake do not stop the motion..
    rule 3..do not panic..stay calm IT WILL NOT AFFECT YOU UNTILL YOU ALLOW..
    rule 4…try to DE-RESONATE..For all those who dont see or dont feel is because your body is at a different frequency..the moment u panic or get scared your body vibrations fall below a specific frequency enough for the paranormal to attack you…also when u look back your brain is in a SEARCH mode and not in LOGIC mode which again makes it easier for it to attack you..controlling your heart beat is extremely important…
    iron nails,horseshoe iron,hanuman chalisa,a crucifix,a talisman these are all examples of deresonators..
    rule 5…if u have never experienced it then for gods sake don’t challenge…cos I had challenged once in my trip to goa and my word that phenomenon has given me the shocker of my life…

    My profession does not allow such thinking but what I had experienced for 4 days had clean bowled all my cognitive and social psychology…

    about the OBE what shalu you are talking I dont know how far that is true but one thing is for sure u will get scary dreams if u keep your hand on your chest as it will interfere with the REM cycle (while sleeping your body shuts down all connections to your muscles so that u dont execute or walk in your dreams..at the same time the chest is pressed whereas the body needs oxygen which u r restricting by almost 50 percent..now the unconscious and conscious brain perceive this as threat but muscle movement is stopped….hence have only one solution with them to wake u up with a bad dream)..and thats why its just impossible to wake up when u want to cos the 7 stages of sleep are not completed to bring muscles back into action…
    As far for paranormal phenomenon is concerned its not necessary to feel or see..Secondly for the non believers YOU may not be affected cos of your body wiring..but who knows ur challenge to spirits may just call them to your home and people around you might get affected…the best thing if not for us atleast for them all religions are the same..they affect all…when u see or feel just call your god…he made them he made you and in no way will he allow you to get harmed…

  92. Shekhar says:

    also there are a list of things which u r not supposed to do I just hope people read it and dont enter into problems as I discovered them after I faced these problems.they are simple but up to you to follow..
    after twilight, evenings or at night in haunted places where u know things do happen always go atleast as per these points
    1 if ever u feel like taking a particular route is not correct or anyone in your group feels spooky about a route try not to take the route(subconscious)
    2 avoid motorbike or cycle in such a route as u r exposing your body.
    3 NEVER EVER do the mistake of carrying non veg on such a road.non veg is a ghost magnet.
    4 be careful on full moon and new moon nights and by night I mean the actual timing on the almanac.
    5 non veg if carried then put iron nails and blades in it.
    6 carry a small iron knife in your pocket to give you confidence.females tie it to the end of your saree. sharp iron is a natural repellent.
    7 if someone stops you and tells u to go back in a different way just listen to him..be safe rather than sorry…if someone calls you from behind do not turn…This may sound funny but has a deep meaning..
    8 if u feel temperature falling down suddenly / u sense a rotting unexplainable smell dude that means if it is paranormal then u are already in the area of effectiveness…keep calm and a steady head…
    9 and famales menstruating…be extra careful…dead tissue is also a serious ghost magnet..
    10 perfumes in such areas not a good option.
    11 carry a hanuman chalisa or kada or a blessed cross or a tabeez or anything which u feel like u know will act as your protector(BTW it will weigh less 5gms if u cant carry even that then I have no words)
    12 if it has touched u or u have felt it…dont stay mum like a fool tell your mom dad and relatives….cos u now need cleansing like a patient with either holy water or ganga jal and mantras or whichever way serves u…its not the end of the world but the correct way to deal with such things…
    13 after everything is normalised thank god…

    • Shalu Sharma says:

    Regarding the picture of this woman in a salwar kameez in the air, I would like to know where did you get it from? No offence meant but this picture is a fake. If you notice clearly the woman is balancing herself on the grills of the window and also the almirah on which her hand is placed. Notice her hands and her feet. When we were kids we used to do similar things as climbing the grilled windows and moreover the woman’s face is blurred by computer graphy. Why so?

But now day by day the presence of the ghost is incresing and may its power also. Wherever i go it chase me whether i am in Goa or Sikkim, it is with me all the time..I can feel it.. My pictures gets blurred.. I can hear doors open and close..I lost lots of stuff..then after few days i get it back suddenly..thinks fell off frequently at home.. I can see showdows roam where i sleep or saty at night. I am not scared anymore.. I am habituated..but i have to get rid of this.. as due to this spirit / ghost my personal life got ruined.. My past GF used to tell me that I did something wrong & abusive to her which I really dont remeber that i did such bad things..Some of my friends say that I used slangs or said something bad but I dont remeber such incident when I bad mouthed my dear friends.
    Even now my family who lives with me is also experiencing the ghost feeling. My Mother recently felt and saw the shadow.. She told that the shadow is of a women with long hairs.

    Please help me give me some suggetions how get free fo0rm this Ghost.

  102. Reshma says:

    Hi,Friends.. After surfing about paranormal things I reached here. And want to share my experience. And i belive there is some negative energies around us.Before few years my Dad past away & after 4 months my younger brother (age:12,he was handicap,cant talk,walk,see.) even he past away. One night i went to sleep mom beside me.. as our habbit i was thinking and i realised someone is sitting beside me watching me,so i turned my head to see and just in 1-2 sec i saw 1 full black small image (Black Dhuaa type)with 2 eyes. As i turned my head that image ran away it seems like he to scared too.Thats it!! this was my experience n was just for 1-2 sec but i saw in real when i was not sleeping. Now also whenever i think that scares me.

  103. Vaibhav says:

    Shalu, I believe in negative energies. But Does it mean that simply without verifying the work done or checking the reports, publish fake stories on website…lets take Bhangadh, Rajasthan…if you google it seriously you will come to know the truth…I will leave that work for you. I dont deny there are haunted places in India, but not all of them which google shows are haunted. people abroad have set up paranormal departments in universities, and indians are just getting scared and spread rumours, nobody verifies them (Mcauley education system made us in that way), e.g. can you tell me what kind of people experience and gets attacked by negative energies? what makes them stronger…study our ancient literatures still if you dont get answers mail back to me. Watch your words before writing it down.

    • Shanaya Alluwalia says:

      I don’t think that it was associated with the paranormal activities… instead it was something like a animal or else… which on seeing you ran away and was scared…

    Hi,
    Shalu…very interesting topic…I am hanging in between belief and disbelief about ghost…I personally had no such experience, but yes…for some days in my sleep I used to feel discomfort…maydays at around 2 to 3 am I used to get awaken from sleep suddenly,and used to see a small woman walked passed and desolved in the wall…her hair is untied but could never see the face…it was all dark a figure…then I changed my position of sleep…thing did not improve…it happened night after night…Everytime I used to see her sitting beside my head and went away…Then we sold our 20 year old house…now everything is back to normal…I am confused whether it was a mental problem all together!!!!GOD knows!!!

  111. Amar Pawar says:

    Hi Shalu,

    I have personally felt the same at the hotel Rajkiran Lonavala

    few time back and your information is correct on the same.

    just curious about the pic of the women who is window…who is she and where?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Amar

  112. Amar Pawar says:

    She must be hunted by very aggressive Ghost….anyways were you came across to Phaltan, Maharashtra..???

    you will surely get some more hunted places over there, as I belongs to same and there are lots of palaces are hunted, most hunted one is under the Ram Mandir there is fight Ring underneath the temple but nobody is allowed over there due to continuous paranormal activities running in the place. Try to get permission from the municipal corporation.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Amar

    Hi Shalu, i have an experience to share. my wife and me were at Mahabaleshwar for a couple of days vacation. We booked a hotel online( i dont know whether it will be good to mention the name of hotel). We had to check-in in the afternoon at the hotel. It was a cottage type room. There were 2 sets of cottages, 1 set had around 8 cottages and other set had 2 cottages. Both sets were about 50 feet away from eachother. We choose 1 cottage from the 2 set. The other cottage besides ours seemed to be closed since months as the enterance and the ‘jhula’ were all covered with dust. We found our room good and a bit different from others. Post lunch we went out and came back in evening around 7. Unpacked the shopping that we did. My wife and me started feeling uneasy in that room but both were hesitant to tell each other. After dinner while taking a short walk my wife said i dont wanna go in that room again, it spooky. I agreed with her and we asked the hotel manager to change the cottage. He okied on it. While we were packing our stuff so that we can shift, i heared a wisper ‘tu nahi ja sakta’. i was so scared and asked my wife to move fast. I didnt tell my wife though and we moved to the other cottage. My wife could figure out that something has happened. While i was closing the door i heared a wisper again ‘main yahan bhi aa gai’. We both couldnt sleep that night. Next morning i told my wife what i experienced. She didnt wanted to stay there or any other hotel so we came back home cancelling a day of our vacation. Had a few experiences after returning home, like someone had come with us from that cottage. Gradually with the help of my mom everything settled down but still we can feel someones there.

    Firstly, thanks to you for writing this blog…
    But can you suggest some blog or page or anything else which can help me out… like remedies or “mantras” for these ghostly creatures…
    I read your blog and didn’t felt like commenting or something because i really did not believed in ghosts or spirits or something supernatural but took great interest in reading these types of stories and experiences…
    Now, i will tell you my experience…
    Me and My husband went to Nainital for my cousins marriage..on returning back we got late at night…
    I remember that one lady in Delhi only asked for lift (she wasn’t wearing a white sari or so, instead she was wearing shalwar kameez) I remembered your post and decided that we we won’t give her lift… I told her that we are going somewhere and can’t give her lift…
    she insisted that she is alone and it is not safe in Delhi especially at nights…
    my sister-in-law was also with us and she scolded her… she murmured something and we left off… then i thought of her and about Delhi and the rape victims… I asked my husband to go back and give her lift… By that time she was gone and we were alone at that spot between fields…I found it weird and told my husband to get of out here as fast as we could…
    He increased his speed a bi and afterwards we met a car accident in which my sister-in-law was killed… and me and my husband were safe… i think that this accident was somehow related with that lady…
    The next incident was on the day when we cremated my sis-in-law’s dead body… I was alone in the house with her daughter (saloni)… and everyone else were out in the temple praying for her…
    Suddenly saloni started shouting mumma mumma… and she ran towards the wall… i saw her and the wall but i wasn’t able to see anything…
    And in a second there appeared something like my sis-in-law… and said “take care of my daughter, i love her much”
    Its was all disappeared in a blick.. saloni was lying unconscious on the floor…
    I still remember that day and even feel that yashika (my sis-in-law) is still here..
    Really miss her :(

  127. Jagdish Chandra says:

    Dear Shallu ji
    I am impressed by your stories
    Many people have done extensive studies on ghosts at various places mentioned by you and some other places also but there studies have been mostly inconclusive
    I myself have been to some so called ghostly places at and after midnight where I felt scary but I’d not come across any ghosts
    Ghost stories are always very gripping and people want to believe it
    Here is wishing you the best

    Hi . i would like to share this particular story which scarred the hell out of everyone whom i have narrated.

    once around 8 pm i was returning from my factory on bike…i was on this particular section of highway which has very low visibility as the street lights dont function well…….out of nowhere a man runs towards me and stops my bike asking for lift to drop him of at particular point to which i agree and we start.

    complete journey the man behaves in a weird way and is pronouncing in language only god knows and starts shivering and laughing all of sudden to which i ask him whats the matter and he says ……nothing is wrong and keeps on continuing…….

    after some distance he starts to change position on bike and keeps on saying some gibberish stuff…..

    there is a bridge which divides the way into 2 and i ask him which way he has to go to which he points to the other way and i say him that i will taking another route and as i complete my sentence and look back the man disappears and after a second or so when i look ahead the person is almost 200 metres away and running towards the direction.

    till date m not able to understand how did he manage to move so fast.

    now the real thrill comes………….next day when i m reading the morning newspaper to my surprise i see the same man in obituary column with a photograph which say that it is his 3rd day of death.

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      This is certainly very scary. If this is that is. Are you sure this was not a dream you had. Also this reminds me a movie in which Nana Patekar was a ghost. Can you tell us where you were going and which road you were on? Thank you.

  129. Mithun says:

    Hey shalu.i want to share some experiences of mine with you. Me and my friend we are very interested in these kind of paranormal activities so one day in December 2008 we decided to go to a crematorium in laal kuan New Delhi.and we 3 went there at 2 in the night. As we entered the crematorium some dogs started howling but I am sure we were not visible to them and vice versa but we were not scared that time because we were sure that there is nothing like this supernatural power and all. Wr took a handycam also with us.we were sitting there and talking , I realised that I forgot to take my lighter with me , there was a cremation and ashes and hot coals were still there , my friend who is a guy who is a very stupid guy he went there and lighted the cigarette , as he took the first drag I dont know from where around 10 dogs were barking and running towards us.(i still feel goosebumps when I think it)and we also started running from there.we were happy that we escaped from there and was joking around. We were coming back to our apartment in badarpur all of a sudden my friend fainted on bike and he was about to fall down .I stopped the bike and tried to wake him up . suddenly he woke up and started screaming and saying let’s go lets go they are behind us. I was scared to the core.we reached room and I asked him about this incident but he said nothinf happened like that and he didn’t faint on the bike.that was very strange for me that he could not recall anything.next day when we woke up he showed me a scar of small hand in his back.it look like some kid slappedd him from back.next day we went to the same place and checked with a pandit and we came to know that it was a kid of 13 years who was cremated from which my friend lighted the cigarette. This whole incident scares me even now.i have lots of experiences about paranormal activities in my life.will share later.

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      Mithun

      I believe you.

      Perhaps it was the ghost of the 13 year old boy who was following you guys. It is a very scary story and something definitely happened. I am not sure what what happened but certainly for a moment the spirit of the boy must have got agitated.

      We know that if someone dies untimely then the spirit of the individual might stay on the physical world. But lets hope that the boy who was cremated rests in peace. Thank you for this story.

    Hello Shalu,

    Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I request you to explore a place named Kolli Hills in Tamil land. People still believe that some evil force keeps disturbing some of them who visit this place.

    Last year I was on an off-road trip to this place with my biker club. We finished our off-roading patch and while getting back to the tar road, one of our biker, all of a sudden met with an accident for no reason. When we asked him what was wrong, he replied that he felt like someone pulled him towards a bush and he lost his control. (For your information, he is one of our pro rider in the group). We checked the path he traveled, it was clear with no obstacles on the road. Nothing happened to him as he was wearing his riding gear.

    When we returned to the hotel, one of the local person told us that many incidents had occurred around the place where we faced a problem.

    Just felt like sharing this with you.

  131. rahul says:

    hello shalu i am going to share a real story of my uncle . my uncle is in army and before this incident which took place in a village of himanchal pradesh ,he usually like to travel at night .so it was early morning around 3am when he was returning from his regiment for vacations and he saw an old lady she was his neighbuor and she was coming towards him and he said how are you aunty . she didn’t replied . he thought may be she dont want to talk . when he reached home he asked his dad that is everything ok with you and our neighbours because she didn’t talk to me in morning . then his dad said she died last week
    from that day he don’t travel at night

  132. sangeetha says:

    I would like to share true story , my uncle died in 2010 and he died becuase of liver cirhossis and never accepted he was about die though the doctor had gave up on him. He even went shopping his clothes , wardrobe etc just a day before his death .. such was his belief … after he died that nite in my uncles house they had kept that ashes in the pot to immerse in water . His driver use to sleep in room outside the house ( servant quarters) he heard my uncle’s voice calling him .. whihc next day he told and left the job … even now in my uncle house people or servants they say they can see his image standing in some places of the house … my aunt and my cousins never sleep alone ..anymore in that house they sleep together …. even if guests come … allowed to sleep in the hall together …. not alone in the rooms .. because he keeps standing and watches people ….i know its scary but its true ..

    • Yogesh says:

      They should not do this as when your uncle was alive they loved him and I believe they still love him. So he will never harm anyone. If they keep doing this will cause to a pitra dosha.

    • Shalu Sharma says:

      My God this is scary stuff. What else does your uncle do other than stand at various places around the house?
