But, one has to keep in mind that no one is allowed inside the fort after 6 PM. There’s even a warning notice right in front of the fort. The story which this town is well-known for tells the tale of a magician who fell in love with the local princess of the area even though their match was impossible. Being quite the master of dark magic, he decided to cast a spell on her to make her surrender to him. However, the princess learned of his plans and found a way to kill him. Before his death, however, the magician cast a dark spell on the palace which caused its doom.
2. Fern Hill Palace Hotel, Ooty
This was considered among the most beautiful hotels of Ooty, a summer abode amidst the serene hill station. But it’s believed to be haunted now. During the shooting of Raaz, the film crew were stationed on the ground floor. Around midnight, they heard furniture being moved around on the floor above. The disgruntled guests headed to the reception, to straighten things out. Only to find out that the hotel did not have a first floor.
3. Jamali-Kamali Masjid, Delhi
If you’re planning a trip to Delhi or near by, you must visit this masjid sharing its boundaries with Qutub Minar. This archaeological site has more glory to it for its haunted stories.

4. Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad
One of the biggest and famous film cities in the country, Ramoji Film City studios are believed to be built on an erstwhile battleground, dating back to the Nizam Sultans of Hyderabad. Rumour has it that the spot is haunted by the dead soldiers. Witnesses report the lights kept on top keep falling off, the light men- who sit with the lights on top have been pushed so many times and many have had grievous injuries. The food left in rooms also get scattered around the room and strange marks are left on the mirrors.
5. Dhanushkodi, Tamil Nadu
