Top 6 Haunted places in Mumbai!!!
You may have heard scary stories from your grandparents or in movies. They can be really unbelievable, and you can’t get them out of your mind. Are any of them true? Well, we’ll maybe never know, but they commonly involve ghosts haunting houses, buildings or even entire streets.
I always had the opinion that haunted houses are the ones in the silent areas, smaller or under-visited cities, but who would have thought of Mumbai – the financial capital, the city of dreams, the city that never sleeps to be having some of the most haunted places in India. I wasn’t the biggest believer of the paranormal, until I heard about these scary places and the frightening stories associated with them. Read on, you might just start believing in it too.
I will tell you about the 7 haunted places in Mumbai that you should avoid going to after the sunset.
- Marve and madh island road
People traveling on the road have seen a girl dressed in bridal wear asking for help. The unsatisfied spirit is said to roam on the road and stop the vehicles passing by. According to these stories, some years ago, a girl was brutally killed on her wedding night and dumped in the adjoining mangrove forests. Since then, people have reported the sighting on many occasions.
- Nasserwanj Wadi
Located in close proximity to Mahim Station, Nasserwanj Wadi is another spooky place in Mumbai. An old compound, it once belonged to a Parsi man named Nasser. About two decades ago, he was brutally murdered and buried near a well in the area. Resident staying here has often seen Nasser, or his spirit, walking around in the premises of the compound. Even the picture above gives a very strange feeling!
- poonam chambers
The bomb blast of 1993 and the collapse of B-Wing in 1997 are the two unnatural incidents that happened in Poonam Chambers in Worli. Both incidents saw many casualties. People working in late night shifts and the security guards have, ever since, complained of sounds of door rattle and knocks in the B-Wing. It is certainly scary and many workers just refuse to stay back at work these days. And what else can one expect when they are working at one of the most haunted places in Mumbai!
- Mumbai high court, fort
A High Court is the most unlikely candidate for a haunting, however believe it or not people have said that they have felt the presence of a male spirit at the Bombay high court. The spirit is said to be that of a lawyer who practiced here years ago. The spirit seems to haunt one particular court and also sometimes scares convicts, so much so that they often confess of their crimes. People also have heard demonic voices from the very same court.
- snDt girls college
One of the most well-known colleges of Mumbai, SNDT Girls College comes with its own secrets. It is said that everyday around 2 a.m. a woman is heard teaching multiplication tables. After she has finish teaching, sounds of children screaming can be heard. The scream would often be heard by nearby residents who would wonder what was happening at the college so late night. People today call this ‘the phantom classroom’. This is one of the most famous haunted places in Mumbai.
- Tower of silence
Located at Malabar Hill, Tower of Silence is the place for the Parsis. The community leaves the dead bodies here to be consumed by vultures before their final journey to heaven. One of the prime haunted places in Mumbai, it’s an extremely demoralizing place with dead bodies lying in queue. The bad smell and the uncanny quiet ambience add to the spookiness.
