Horror stories are really fearful and fascinating at the same time. Even, the spooky movies send chills down the spine of many. Most of us have grown up with several bone-chilling horror stories. While the stories' truth remains debatable, different real-life paranormal incidents can’t be ignored.

You must be well aware of different popular haunted places if spooky, mysterious and horror stories intrigue you. While people avoid visiting these haunted places after dark, the Indian government also bars entry into these places after sunset. Some of the popular haunted sites in India are Brij Raj Bhavan Heritage Hotel (Kota), Bhangarh Fort (Rajasthan), Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb (Delhi), Agrasen Ki Baoli (Delhi), Ramoji Film City (Hyderabad), and Bombay High Court (Mumbai), to name a few.

Well, apart from the above, there are several other places that are claimed to be haunted. However, apart from the popular places, there are several other local tales of places being haunted. One such place is the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai.

The Sanjay Gandhi National Park is one of the most attractive sites in the city with a lush green area. Rich in flora and fauna, nature lovers visit this park every day. However, there is a haunted tale related to the place often whispered by locals.

As per common tales, the place is haunted and especially at night. Locals claim to have witnessed different paranormal activities and ghost sightings. As per the local tales, a woman appears from nowhere at night and asks for a lift at this place.

It won’t be surprising to find the guards reciting a silent prayer during nightfall and crossing over to the less dense areas of the park. If asked, the guards would narrate their encounters with a ghost of a woman, who often tries to stop people driving around. As per the guards, if the ghost doesn’t stop them, it would chase and scare them away.

Moreover, people who reside in the park in small huts also share that they don’t dare to venture outside in the dark, fearing the ghost of the woman more than any wild animal. Some even claim hearing strange voices while others share the eerie feeling of being constantly looked at or followed.

The locals here advise visiting the place during the day to enjoy the serene beauty of nature. However, visiting Sanjay Gandhi National Park after sundown could be a frightening experience.

Exploring Mumbai's Darker Side: A Word of Caution While these haunted places add a mysterious charm to Mumbai's narrative, it's essential to approach them with caution and respect.

Exploring these sites can be an exhilarating experience, but it's crucial to prioritize safety and adhere to any regulations or restrictions in place. In a city as dynamic as Mumbai, where every corner tells a tale, the haunted places add an extra layer of intrigue. Whether you believe in the supernatural or not, the stories woven into these locations create a captivating tapestry that adds a touch of the mysterious to the bustling cityscape. So, if you're up for a spine-tingling adventure, venture into the shadows of Mumbai's haunted places and unlock the secrets that linger in the air.

Young female leopard seen around the Royal Palms apartments in Goregaon East, her home range.

The leopards of Mumbai: life and death among the city's 'living ghosts'

India’s second city is home to an estimated 20 million people ... and 21 leopards. The 250,000 residents with homes inside the boundary of Sanjay Gandhi national park must find a way to live with their big-cat neighbours

Hawa hawa oh hawa … a 90s Hindi hit blares from the radio in Kusum’s mud house. “I play music till 1am every day,” says the elderly lady. She says she is not much of a music fan - but her loud playlist keeps the leopards away. Meanwhile, just down the road, 35-year-old Dilip Changverlekar recently renovated the house where his family has lived for generations. He added tin sheets to the roof and walls to make it difficult for leopards to climb.

Mumbai is India’s richest city and home to a human population of around 20 million, but it also contains one of the largest protected urban forests in the world. The Sanjay Gandhi national park (SGNP) spans 104 sq km - the size of 30 Central Parks - and is home to more than 1,000 species of plants and animals. Here in Chuna Pada, a tribal hamlet of 40 houses inside the park’s boundary, seeing a leopard is not a scandal but a routine, and residents receive a visit from the big cats several times a week.

In 2012 a forest camera-trap counted as many as 21 leopards in the park, and footage of the big cats in the slums, residential complexes and schools of urban Mumbai has shaped what many think of SGNP’s leopards. It has also given the impression that the creatures are entering the city more often than ever before. But are there really more leopards?

Kusum, resident of Chuna Pada; leopards crouch in the vegetation just next to her house.

The leopards were here long before millions of people turned Mumbai (which once had a sizeable population of tigers, too) into a bustling megacity. The park’s peripheral areas have never been so densely populated, and Vidya Athreya, India’s leading expert on leopard-human conflict, thinks this has led to the increase in sightings.

“Eye shine” is the easiest way to spot the cats, who have a tapetum lucidum structure at the back of each eye that reflects light back and helps them see more clearly in the dark. “People used to go to bed earlier, and there weren’t so many vehicles or so many lights,” says Athreya.

The presence of leopards living alongside humans is a case of two highly adaptable species sharing space, says Athreya, who calls the animals “living ghosts” for their ability to be elusive.

The very idea that the leopard shouldn’t live near humans is a completely urban construct, she says. “If you got to rural India, people know leopards have always been around. The adivasis [ethnic and tribal groups of India] have always lived with them and see the animal as part of their cultural identity.”

The leopards come close to human settlements looking for food, says SGNP wildlife researcher and conservationist Krishna Tiwari. Around 90% of their diet consists of dogs, rodents and wild boar, with stray dogs - attracted by the garbage dumped on the edge of the park - accounting for 60%.

Mumbai’s leopards have generally coexisted peacefully with their human neighbours. But a spate of attacks a decade ago reinforced the notion of them as bloodthirsty man-eaters. Of the 176 reported attacks between 1991 to 2013, 84 occurred between 2002 and 2004. Nine people were killed by leopards in the month of June 2004 alone.

During this period, leopards rescued from other parts of Maharashtra state were being released in the SGNP. The authorities thought the park would be a haven for leopards, but instead the relocated cats were forced to fight for territory and food. “What we ended up having in the park was stressed-out predators,” says Athreya. “Highly territorial animals who were displaced and had to find food in an unfamiliar place.”

Krishna Tiwari, a wildlife researcher and conservationist grew up just outside the SGNP.

After the relocations stopped in 2006, the number of attacks decreased dramatically and there were no fatalities or injuries from leopard attacks in the Mumbai suburbs from 2009-11. Yet, since November 2011 there have been six fatalities; the last three deaths were all reported in Aarey Milk Colony, to the south of the SGNP. The most recent was in October 2013, when a seven-year-old boy was killed .

Tiwari, who grew up in a residential building just outside the SGNP, has worked in the park for almost two decades. The encroachment of the city today is unparalleled, he says. Illegal settlements - including nagars (settlements by non-indigenous people), padas (tribal settlements) and high-rise buildings - continue to swell in and around the park. More than 54 illegal settlements and two villages - with a combined population in excess of 250,000 - are inside the park itself.

With this encroachment of the city into the park, Athreya fears that conflict with humans is the prime threat to Mumbai’s leopard population. How people living around the park deal with the presence of these animals will determine the future for the big cats.

Chandunushay Jadhav’s family in Aarey Milk Colony, who spot leopards every few weeks.

In space-deprived Mumbai, any open land attracts a premium, and the wall around the national park is “for people to stay out, not for leopards to stay in,” Tiwari says. “Real estate ads sell ‘nature’ as if the park is their private property. People want to live close to nature, but don’t want to live with the leopards that come with it.”

He now limits his conflict awareness to those living in informal settlements, such as tribal hamlets and slums. “If you are in a building there’s no need to worry,” he says. “All attacks on humans have happened in [slum] areas, except one in Powai .” In settlements that lack toilets or electricity, 80% of the leopard attacks happen when people go out to answer nature’s call after dark.

Chandunushay Jadhav lives in Aarey Milk Colony, where a record high number of leopards attacks have been recorded, including the most recent death. But Jadhav says there are more important things to worry about than leopard attacks: “Don’t tell us to be scared of the leopard, give us facilities,” says the 64-year-old, who sleeps in a doorless structure on his farm where three leopards are regular visitors. “I am not afraid, I don’t even have electricity. Don’t tease it, don’t disturb it and it won’t attack you.”

Jadhav knows that leopards have roamed the area for generations and doesn’t think the creatures will disappear anytime soon. In the old times, the cats had enough space in the jungle and ample prey, so “why are we making towers where the leopards are? The leopards will visit Mumbai again and again because this is where they live,” he says. “It is really their home.”

This vast expanse of wilderness offers a serene escape from the urban chaos, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the lap of nature. While the park is known for its captivating beauty and diverse offerings, there are also haunting tales that surround its premises. Let’s explore the mysterious and eerie occurrences that some visitors and night guards have experienced within Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

A Natural Haven

Spread over a vast area, Sanjay Gandhi National Park is renowned for its lush greenery, diverse flora, and abundant wildlife. It serves as a crucial green lung for the city, providing a peaceful retreat for nature enthusiasts. The park is home to numerous species of plants, birds, and animals, creating a harmonious ecosystem that attracts thousands of visitors each year.

Haunted Occurrences

Beneath its serene facade, some believe that Sanjay Gandhi National Park holds a supernatural presence. Legends and ghost stories have been passed down through generations, adding to the park’s aura of mystery. Many people claim to have encountered paranormal phenomena within the park’s boundaries.

One of the most prominent ghostly legends involves a woman dressed in white who appears as a hitchhiker seeking a ride. She approaches unsuspecting visitors, only to vanish mysteriously. Numerous accounts have been shared by individuals who claim to have encountered this ethereal figure. Others have reported hearing inexplicable sounds, whispers, or footsteps while traversing the park’s trails, especially during the twilight hours.

From encountering shadowy figures to witnessing objects moving on their own, their stories weave a captivating tapestry of the park’s haunted reputation.

The Veil of Darkness

As evening falls, a sense of trepidation settles over Sanjay Gandhi National Park. Visitors tend to avoid venturing into the park at night, not only due to the presence of wild animals but also the lingering spirits said to roam the area. The darkness adds an extra layer of unease, heightening the fear of encountering the unknown. However, for those seeking an adrenaline rush and a taste of the supernatural, exploring the park after sunset can be an intriguing and spine-chilling experience.

Sanjay Gandhi National Park stands as a unique blend of natural beauty and haunting tales.

Photo of Sakshi Nahar Dhariwal

Sanjay Gandhi National Park

Nestled in the heart of Mumbai, this park isn't just a haven for nature lovers and avid birdwatchers—it's also whispered to be a playground for the supernatural. By day, the park boasts a kaleidoscope of wildlife, making it a paradise for enthusiasts. But as the sun dips below the horizon, a different story unfolds—one that curls like mist through the trees.

Ever heard of a lady ghost hitchhiker? Well, very recently I did, and let's just buckle up, because this park's got a tale to tell. Locals, with a glint of mischief in their eyes, spin stories of a mysterious woman who materializes from thin air after dark. Her spectral presence sends shivers down the spines of even the bravest souls. She seeks rides, leaving night-time drivers in spine-tingling dilemmas.

The guardians of the park, those brave souls who watch over its nocturnal secrets, have their own strategies for navigating the shadows. Hushed whispers and secret prayers accompany their journeys as they cautiously edge towards the lighter, less densely wooded areas. Ask them about their encounters, and their tales of encounters with the ethereal lady come alive—sometimes a chilling chase, other times a spine-chilling scare.

But it's not just the guards who harbor these eerie stories; the park's nocturnal residents, the hut dwellers, have their own narratives to share. Amidst the rustling leaves and distant hoots, they've learned to heed a different kind of warning. It's not leopards or wild creatures that send them scurrying into their huts; it's the lady ghost's spectral reputation that keeps them indoors, eyes wide and hearts pounding.

The night holds its secrets—the whispers, the unexplained voices, and the inexplicable feeling of being watched. As the moon casts its enchanting glow, who's to say what lurks in the shadows?

This historic and majestic fort was built by Raja Bhagwant Das in the year 1573 and is located at the foothills of the Aravalis. The curious case of Bhangarh and its chemistry with the supernatural has for years intrigued and attracted several travellers from around the world.

Real story: There are several stories regarding what caused the fate of the Fort. One such folklore said when the Fort was being planned, it was found to be home to an ascetic, saint Baba Balaknath. After various negotiations, the saint gave his approval on a single condition–“the shadow of the king’s palace should never fall upon his home.” But over the years, an ambitious successor added to the fortification, causing a sinister shadow upon the Ascetic’s home. Having provoked the saint’s wrath, there befell a curse upon the land of Bhangarh.

The Savoy, Mussourie

The Savoy Mussourie

Mussourie, a small town set in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand, was the hub for English settlement during the British Raj. The weather of this mountain-town, they said, was more suited compared to the harsh summers of the plains. Even today, we see how influenced the architecture of this tiny town remains by the former inhabitants. The Savoy is one such piece of English-Gothic country house that is identifiable from a distance.

Real story: This hotel was once upon a time the roof over Frances Garnett-Orme. She was a British spiritualist who had been betrothed to a British officer posted at Mussourie at the time. Unfortunately, the officer had died before the wedding. It is believed that being a spiritualist and grieving may have led her to turn to higher powers and communicate with the other side. She had befriended another spiritualist, Eva Mountstephen, who was visiting from Lucknow at the time. One day, Eva had to travel back to attend to urgent matters. Meanwhile, the body of Frances was retrieved from her room.

Strangely, the room was locked from the inside. When the case went on trial, Eva Mountstephen was found guilty due to lack of evidence. Strange enough, the doctor who performed the autopsy on Frances was also found dead. It is believed that the ghost of Frances Garnett-Orme still haunts the property. This case remains to be one of the most intriguing locked-room mysteries and has inspired many bestselling authors.

Sanjay Gandhi National Park a haunted place in Mumbai

Sanjay Gandhi National Park is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Mumbai. The entire park is spread over approximately 104 acres making it one of the largest in the country. But the place that’s known for lurking wild animals has an infamous story as well. One might find it difficult to believe that the park is haunted.

What is the story?

Although there are no true stories about what happened here. And you won’t find it at many places on the internet as well. But if you dig deeper or talk to some locals, they will tell you the story. The truthfulness of their stories remains a question but the fact that this park is haunted can’t be denied.

The locals have different stories but one of the most prominent of all is that once a lady who was very beautiful was dragged to the deep forest and raped. She was killed by the men who raped her and ever since she is haunting the deepest sections of the park.

What is spooky here?

It has been confirmed by the guards as well as the locals around the park that whenever a person tries to reach the deepest parts of the forest, the woman kills them. Also, there have been sightings of a woman dressed in white saree who asks for lift and those who don’t stop, she chases them. Now it is a hoax or a true story, we will leave that on you to decide. Also it is said that the spookiest place in the entire park is Kanheri Caves which is one of the 109 caves in the park.

2. Mukesh Mill

Location: Diwakar Building, Narayan A Sawant Rd, Azad Nagar, Colaba, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Mukesh Mill a haunted place in Mumbai

There isn’t a list of horror places in Mumbai that does not count Mukesh Hill at the top spots. And that’s because it seems to be a spooky place only by the looks of it. There have been many Bollywood and other theatre projects that have been executed here but they haven’t been satisfactorily shot.

The incident that took place at the mill in 1871 made this place deserted and spooky. Mukesh Mill was one of the top-notch mills in Mumbai but in this year it faces a mishap where the entire mill caught fire. Though most people were rescued, there were some who got stuck and they were burnt alive. And ever since, neither this place has thrived, nor any projects were completed, nor did anyone reconstruct anything. The place has been haunted ever since.

All the visitors, explorers, and Bollywood stars; whosoever visited here always experienced a negative energy around them. The shoots resulted in early pack ups and explorers felt someone behind them all the time. People have also sighted shadows, unearthly activities, and much more. It is also said that once an actress was possessed by a ghost who warned the crew members to leave the place or else they won’t live to see another day. This shocked the entire team and they vacated the place.

3. D’Souza Chawl

Location: Kalina Kurla Rd, Kolivery Village, Santacruz East

D’Souza Chawl a best haunted place in India

This is known to be another haunted place in Mumbai and one where the ghost is harmless. At least that’s what people say. But when you get the sight of an apparition out of nowhere, it surely makes the heart skip a beat. Although, this place is amongst the haunted ones in Mumbai but no harm has been registered by the locals ever since.

Now, according to the story of the chawl; locals say that there was a woman who slipped and fell in the well. This well has no boundaries and is made in the very center of the chawls. She came to the well for water at night and while pulling up the bucket, she fell inside. She screamed for help but at the time of this mishap, no one was there. She eventually drowned and died in the well. Ever since the chawls are haunted by her presence.

The sighting of that lady in white saree has been confirmed by the people who still live there. They have seen her multiple times but only to get their heart a sudden spike. This haunted place is not harmful (yet) so the people have named this place as a friendly ghost place of Mumbai.

4. Vrindavan Society

Location: Thane, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Vrindavan Society a haunted place in Mumbai

When it comes to ghostly encounters, Mumbai is filled with many such places. The city that never sleeps has places with a dark past. Not only parks, houses, lanes, but even societies. One such example that’s in front of you is the Vrindavan Society.

There is a story amongst the locals that once a man hanged himself to death in one of the flats of the society. Some people say that he was killed by robbers who looted his house. So there are a few different things that people say. But the dead old man is a common thing in all the stories.

People also believe that the night he was murdered, the guards were not doing their job. So from then till date, he comes at night and slaps the guards who sleep or are engaged in other activities compromising on their duty.

5. Aarey Milk Colony

Location: Goregaon, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Aarey Milk Colony a haunted place in Mumbai

Having spoken about creepy places in Mumbai, we can’t ignore Aarey Milk Colony which is located in Goregaon region of Mumbai. There are different stories that have caught the attention of people living in Mumbai because this colony is situated at a place that boasts its natural beauty.

People say that there were killings done in this region in the past. Some say that this forested place is a very common area for black magic (which is said to be practised even today) and so on. What’s right and what’s not is still a big question that has to be answered.

There are multiple things that have been confirmed by people. Actually, the colony falls in the path which is a shortcut to Powai. People usually take a shortcut from here to save time and avoid traffic. But those who took this route during the night have heard children crying and a woman asking for help and lift. But whenever someone stopped, she quickly vanished giving a devil’s laughter that echoed in the environment. Creepy enough? Or do you still dare to take a shortcut?

6. Mukesh Mills

Mukesh Mills, located in Mumbai, has garnered a reputation for being one of the most haunted places in the city. Abandoned after a devastating fire in the late 1980s, the eerie remnants of the textile mill have attracted numerous ghostly legends. Visitors have reported strange sounds, ghostly apparitions, and an overwhelming feeling of being watched. The charred, decaying structure adds to the ominous ambiance, making it a magnet for thrill-seekers and paranormal enthusiasts.

One popular ghost story revolves around a female spirit believed to be a former mill worker who met a tragic end during a fire. Her presence is said to be felt by those who dare to explore the abandoned premises. Mukesh Mills stands as a chilling reminder of its industrial past, shrouded in an aura of supernatural mystery and urban legends.

7. St. John’s Baptist Church

St. John’s Baptist Church, situated in Mumbai, holds a mysterious and haunting history. This abandoned church has long been a subject of urban legends and ghostly tales. The eerie ambiance of the dilapidated structure, overrun by nature, adds to the spine-tingling experience.

Visitors to the church have reported strange phenomena, including disembodied voices, cold spots, and shadowy figures. Legends tell of a forlorn spirit, possibly of a deceased priest, who is said to wander the premises, creating an unsettling atmosphere.

The church’s peeling paint shattered stained glass windows, and the encroachment of foliage evoke an uncanny charm. St. John’s Baptist Church serves as a chilling reminder of its once vibrant past, now steeped in ghostly lore and mystery.

8. Tower of Silence (Dokhmenashin)

The Tower of Silence, also known as Dokhmenashin, in Mumbai, is a place shrouded in eerie mystique and haunting traditions. This unique Zoroastrian funerary structure is designed for the disposal of the deceased through the ancient practice of excarnation.

Within this circular tower, the bodies of the departed are exposed to the elements and scavenger birds. The somber silence and the sight of vultures descending upon their macabre feast create a spine-chilling atmosphere.

The Tower of Silence is known for its strict rituals and the enigmatic aura that surrounds it. While it remains off-limits to non-Zoroastrians, it continues to be a haunting symbol of an ancient funerary practice that both intrigues and unsettles those who encounter its eerie presence.

These are the top 5 haunted places in Mumbai that have been reported by people. Some of them have been reported by people and some are just ghostlores. Whatsoever the case, do you still have the guts to visit here once?

The place, which was founded in 1579 was left in ruins after an epidemic in 1840. The abandoned church was then associated with the spirit of a young bride who apparently haunted the church. An exorcism was carried out in 1977, and it is said that the people present there heard screams, laughter and wailing when the priest was undertaking the process. This exorcism ended with the sound of a loud splash in the church pond, killing all the fish there.

Mumbai is home to several mills, one of them being Mukesh Mills in Colaba. It is said that a major fire ravaged almost the entirety of the mills, after which it was abandoned. Today, the place houses a spooky look, and is used as a shooting location for films , including the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Om Shanti Om . However, many who have worked here report eerie incidents that have happened to them on the premises.

Taj Mahal Hotel

Overlooking the Gateway of India is Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, among the most luxurious properties in Mumbai. The place has always been a source of pride for Mumbaikars, which got tainted with gory memories of the 26/11 terror attacks, after which it has stood as a symbol of resilience.

The place is said to be haunted, but not by the ghosts deceased in the terror attacks. It is said that the chief architect of the hotel committed suicide here when he realised there was an error, and the hotel was being built on the side opposite to what had been planned. Though it is among the places that are haunted, this Mumbai hotel’s ghost is said to be harmless. Guests, as well as staff, have claimed to have seen the ghost, who wanders about at night but does not trouble anyone.

Bombay High Court

Tower of Silence

The name itself has an eerie feel to it, and this tower also has a spooky feel to it. The place, located in Malabar Hills, is used as a cemetery by the Parsi community. According to Parsi rituals, the bodies of the dead are left in the open here for vultures to feed upon, which gives it a spooky feel.

Marve and Madh Island Road

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Rahulratan Chauhan (@rahulratanchauhan)

The Marve Madh road has a long, empty road that leads to a secluded, rocky area. It is said that the place is haunted by the ghost of a newlywed bride, who was buried near the mangroves here. She is said to trouble the traffic on that road, and has also caused accidents. Thus, it is advised that people don’t visit the area after dark.

Things to Do

  • Best Hikes & Trails

Exploring Buddhist Caves

Where to camp, where to stay nearby, how to get there, tips for your visit, sanjay gandhi national park.

Mumbai's Sanjay Gandhi National Park is one of six national parks in Maharashtra state. The park is an amalgamation of forest and agricultural land that has been carried out over multiple decades (it was initially formed under the Bombay National Park Act in 1950). The site may not be as large or exotic as some of the top national parks in India , but its luring basalt rock formations and accessibility make it very appealing. It's the only national park in India that lies within city limits, and it's full of more than 100 ancient rock-cut Buddhist caves, a lake, and a lion and tiger safari zoo. The park is a great destination for families to enjoy nature amid the bustling city center, complete with plenty of activities to keep both adults and kids entertained.

Sanjay Gandhi National Park covers 104 square kilometers (65 miles) and is divided into three areas: a buffer area, a tourist area, and a core area. There are seven hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty found within the core area. Two prominent temples are located inside the park—the Trimurti Digambar Jain temple, complete with three towering white statues of Lord Adinath, Lord Bahubali, and Lord Bharata, and the Mahadeo Shiva temple near the Kanheri Buddhist Caves.

Those Kanheri Caves are a park highlight and are worth a visit on their own. Scattered throughout a hillside and hand-carved out of volcanic basalt rock, the caves contain ancient carvings, Buddha statues, and prayer halls. Just look out for the monkeys while exploring.

The Vanrani (Forest Queen) Toy Train takes visitors on a scenic 20-minute joyride around the park. And the lion and tiger safari (which contains two lions and four tigers kept in enclosures) provides a trip highlight for families with children.

You can also paddleboat Vihar and Tulsi Lakes, and learn about the different species of resident wildlife through one of the Nature Information Center's guided activities. The center's butterfly garden is also a popular park destination.

Best Hikes & Trails

Hiking Sanjay Gandhi National Park's trails take visitors out of a city deemed "the financial capital of India" and into what feels like the remote wilderness. Seven designated nature trails meander into the Kanheri foothills, through varied ecosystems and up to 1,000 feet above sea level. However, it's not possible to hike along most of the nature trails without being accompanied by a naturalist, guide, or tour agency, so you'll need to plan ahead for an authentic experience.

  • Shilonda Trail : This gently meandering trail winds its way from the low-lying scrubland into a dense evergreen forest. Once an area occupied by a tribal settlement, nature has reclaimed this space, allowing trekkers to explore the tundra and wade through refreshing crystal clear forest streams.
  • Malad Trail Line : Another easy trail, the Malad Trail Line takes you past a manmade watering hole frequented by the park's wildlife. Along the route, you will see several deciduous trees, including teak, red silk cotton, palash, Laburnum, and bamboo. The trail ends at the suburb of Malad, where the forest and city meet.
  • Highest Point Trail : This invigorating trek starts at the Bamboo Trail trailhead and then crosses streams and negotiates rocky hillsides to the highest point in the park. From here you get a panoramic view of all three of the park's lakes against the backdrop of the city.
  • Nagla Block Trail : This trail is considered the park's most rewarding. However, it's situated in a remote northern part of the park. The trail entrance starts outside the park at the nature center in Sasupada Village, and then ends on the banks of Vasai Creek. It's a hilly hike through a pristine area suspected to be the home of a tigress, and is frequented by butterfly and bird enthusiasts. This trail doesn't require booking a guide in advance, but before you venture out on your own, you'll need to pay an entry fee at the forest office in the village.

The Kanheri Buddhist Caves date back to the 1st century BC, when a wide trading route brought Buddhism to the region. Kanheri was a major settlement for Buddhist learning up until the 10th century AD, and contained the biggest Buddhist university in western India. The subsequent decline in Buddhism in the region resulted in the abandoned caves, which have now become a tourist attraction.

Cave 3 is among one of the most impressive caves, as it contains the largest number of intact carvings—including two imposing Buddha statues—and one of the biggest prayer halls in India. If you continue up to the hilltop from the caves on the Kanheri Upper Trail, you're rewarded with a panoramic view of Mumbai.

There is one campground located within the grounds of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, offering stays in tents, pine huts, and guest houses. Five permanent safari tents provide a comfortable night's sleep, as well as protection from the elements and wildlife. Each tent comes complete with bedding, blankets, fold-down canvas windows, a porch, and a picnic spot; a few tents are air-conditioned. Community bathrooms are available on site, and organized hikes and activities can be booked with your stay.

Several lodging options encircle Sanjay Gandhi National Park. You can stay right in the heart of Mumbai, experiencing both the park and the metro scene, or choose a budget hotel on the outskirts of town or an upscale business-savvy stay in Thayne.

  • Royal Hometel Suites : Located along the Western Express Highway in Mumbai, the Royal Hometel Suites is just a few miles west of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, making it a good home base. The hotel offers five different categories of rooms and suites, as well as three dining options: a restaurant that serves Indian, Asian, and continental cuisine, a bar that serves custom drinks and food, and a lobby lounge with fast food, beverages, and snacks. When you're not exploring the park, relax by the pool, take advantage of the hotel's complimentary Wi-Fi, or get in a workout at the on-site fitness center.
  • Hotel Samadhan : Hotel Samadhan is a budget hotel located in the Mumbai suburb of Kandivali, just a three-minute walk from the rail station. Choose from a room with one double bed, a flat-screen television, and air conditioning, or a deluxe room with a king-size bed, flat-screen television, air conditioning, a bathtub and shower, and a dining area. Airport pickup, free parking, and a laundry service are available with your stay.
  • Fortune Park Lake City : An upscale business hotel situated on the eastern side of the park in Thayne, Fortune Park Lane is surrounded by the picturesque hills of Yeoor and Parsik, as well as 30 lakes. This hotel offers three styles of rooms: a standard room with a king and twin bed, a Fortune Club room with multiple king beds, and a suite with a king bed, a separate living area, and a spacious bathroom. Two restaurants are located on site and offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Sanjay Gandhi National Park lies between Borivali, Thane, and Palgar on the northern outskirts of Mumbai. The park's main entrance is on the Western Express Highway in Borivali East, 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of the city center. The nearest airport is 15 kilometers away in Mumbai and most hotels offer free transport from the airport.

The closest Mumbai railway station is in Borivali on the Western Line . This is the best way to access the park, as you can hire a rickshaw or taxi from the station to take you to the park's entrance. If you're driving, access the main entrance from the Borivali East exit off of the Western Express Highway.

A shuttle bus runs between the park entrance and Kanheri Buddhist Caves, with departures every hour (except during lunch and on Mondays). Separate tickets are required to visit the caves and need to be purchased from the ticket office near the cave entrance. Private vehicles (including bicycles) can be taken inside the park, after paying an entry fee. Having your own transportation once inside allows you to fully experience all the park has to offer.

  • Sanjay Gandhi National Park opens early in the morning, at 5.30 a.m., for walkers. It remains open for day visits from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily. There is a day-use fee and children under five are free.
  • The park is managed by the government, so expect some inconveniences. For instance, all tourist attractions and facilities (except Gandhi Tekdi and the Kanheri Buddhist Caves) are closed over lunch from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and also on Mondays. Information and facilities for tourists are lacking, and many of the park's sparse signboards are written in Marathi (the state's language), making directions unclear.
  • Food options are limited inside the park. There's a canteen with a basic vegetarian Indian menu. You can also buy snacks and water from enterprising locals.
  • In an effort to keep the park litter-free, you'll need to pay a refundable deposit to bring plastic water bottles and food items inside. Bags are usually searched by park officials at the entrance.
  • Bicycles can be rented inside the park, or at Harry's Bicycle Rental Shop , situated 500 meters before the park entrance. You'll need to provide an appropriate photo ID when renting a bike, and if you visit on a weekend, expect a long wait, as the demand to rent is high.
  • Anyone caught venturing off the park's main roads and designated areas will be fined 25,000 rupees.
  • If you prefer not to hire a hiking guide, the Bombay Natural History Society organizes guided walks on the weekends.
  • For the most peaceful experience, visit the park during the week, as it gets very crowded on weekends, especially on Sunday.

Sanjay Gandhi National Park

Sanjay Gandhi National Park

Sanjay Gandhi National Park is not only a popular weekend destination for boating, seeing its huge variety of resident birds, reptiles, and mammals, but is also known for being possessed by the ghost of a hitchhiker. Visitors and even the park’s guards have reported seeing this shadow-like figure clad in white walking with them and running alongside vehicles. What adds more to this eeriness are thickly forested pathways where sunshine doesn’t reach and you walk accompanied by the sounds of screeching birds. Another part that people steer clear of is the Kanheri Caves. These 1st-century caves are said to have a ghostly atmosphere because of their looming stony structure and dark alleyways, where people lose their way often. Location: Western Express Highway, Borivali East, Mumbai.

St John Baptist Church

St John Baptist Church

There is something about an abandoned church that makes one immediately think of the eerie and the unexplained. The same is the case with this 500-year-old church. Its ruined arches, walls full of creepers, and overhanging silence is enough to send shivers down your spine. It is said that the spirit of a young bride used to haunt this Church. People report witnessing an exorcism in 1977 by a local priest to rid the place of the spirit.. During the exorcism, they heard a loud cry and a splash in the church’s pond. Surprisingly, all the fish in the pond were found to be dead the next day. Even now, people visit the church, amongst the top 10 haunted places in Mumbai, for Christmas mass just once a year, steering away from it for the rest of the time.    Location: SEEPZ Industrial Area, Andheri East, Mumbai.

Mukesh Mill

Mukesh Mill

Known as one of the most haunted places in Mumbai, this 150-year-old place has quite an intriguing horror story. Established by the East India Company, a huge fire led to the death of many workers and this textile mill going out of business in 1982. Since then, the charcoal coated ruins, creeper-infested walls, and abandoned pathways have been said to be haunted by spirits and cries of the dead workers. It used to be a popular shooting location until the time the actors and crew members reported seeing ghostly images and experiencing supernatural experiences, leading to its abandonment. Location: Near TCI Industries, Narayan A Sawant Road, Colaba, Mumbai.

Aarey Milk Colony

Aarey Milk Colony

Wailing children, violent ghostly figures asking for lifts, people practising witchcraft are only some of the reasons why Aarey Milk Colony is included amongst the most haunted places in Mumbai. People have reported a woman asking for lifts and getting violent if denied a ride.

Poonam Chambers

Poonam Chambers

It is a popular notion that the souls of people who come to violent deaths always haunt the places where they die.

The place was a site of the 1993 blasts and the collapse of one of its wings later on. People working in the building have reported rattling doors and sighting ghostly aberrations. Some even claim to have heard cries of people, without anybody being visible. In fact, workers refuse to stay back for work after dusk at the chambers. Location: Dr. Annie Besant Road, Markandeshwar Nagar, Shiv Sagar Estate, Worli, Mumbai.

Tower of Silence

Tower of Silence

The Tower of Silence has been engulfed in enigma ever since its existence. Majorly because of the shroud of secrecy around them. It is a place where the age-old custom of leaving out the dead for the vultures to devour was practiced by the Parsi community. It is done to avoid the dead polluting the sacred mother earth and as a final act of charity. Since non-Parsis are not allowed to enter the place, it is the subject of many ghostly legends. People claim to have seen the white apparitions, hearing eerie shrills coming from the tower at night, and feeling sudden shivers when walking around the place. This is the reason the Tower of Silence is featured amongst the top horror places in Mumbai. Location: Kemps Corner, Malabar Hills, Mumbai.

The D’Souza Chawl

The D’Souza Chawl

This is one of those places that are said to inhabit the harmless ghost of the ‘lady of the well’. The story of this place is part-reality and part-fiction. The reality was that a few years back a well was dug inside the chawl to help overcome the water woes of the residents. Since boundary walls didn’t protect the well, a lady fell into it and died after struggling painfully. After the incident, people claim to see an apparition that looks anguished roaming the well area, which has been closed since.

After her death, a black dog occupied the empty house and is said to howl whenever the spirit appears. The soul, that is said to be seen standing in the same spot of the house every time she appears, has never harmed anybody.

Taj Mahal Hotel

Taj Mahal Hotel

One of the most surprising inclusions in the list of top 10 haunted places in Mumbai this iconic hotel is said to have its own resident ghosts!

Bhangarh - India's Most Haunted Places

You must have heard of the legend of Bhangarh, counted among the top 20 real haunted places in India. There is an eeriness to everything in Bhangarh.

According to the ASI (Archaeological Survey of India), tourists should avoid loitering about the fort’s ruins after sunset. This is an indication of how haunted the Bhangarh Fort really is.

The popular tale has it that Tantrik Singhia, a magician, fell in love with Princess Ratnavali and resorted to magic to win her over.

However, the princess, upon hearing of his plans, had the magician killed. The magician thereupon cursed the residents of the fort to death and the village dwellers to remain roofless.

2. Tunnel No. 33, Shimla

Tunnel No. 33, Shimla - Most Haunted Places in India

Toy train rides in Shimla sound like an adventure! But what if there is a haunted tunnel in the route? Not so much fun now huh?

Beyond the beauty of Shimla , the Queen of Hill Stations lies Tunnel No. 33. It is considered to be one of the most haunted places in Shimla and in India as well.

The Kalka-Shimla route has a tunnel, which lasts for over 2 minutes. As you exit, you reach Barog railway station. It is indeed a unique experience but to be informed prior is always better.

Tunnel 33 in Shimla is named after Colonel Barog whose ghost is believed to haunt the place. In 1898, he was a railway engineer and was instructed to construct a tunnel on time.

After his calculations, he ordered the laborers to start boring holes in the mountain from both sides. After an unsuccessful attempt, he was fired and fined by the government. The laborers were also furious, which depressed him and he felt humiliated.

People say he shot himself out of his misery while out a walk with his dog. The dog tried to grab the attention of people but it was too late. The Colonel was buried inside this incomplete tunnel to pay homage. 

Locals say he never left this place and still haunts the tunnel. Your thoughts?

3. Dumas Beach, Gujarat

Dumas Beach: Most Haunted Places in India

Laying in a hammock with your favorite drink in hand. How does that sound? Relaxing? All you want to do is to get that good dose of vitamin sea.

But that might not be possible at this beach in Gujarat. Located along the Arabian Sea is Dumas Beach and we are going to find out why it is one of the most haunted places in Gujarat. 

People say it used to be a Hindu burial ground and the spirits never left the region. Also, have you ever seen a beach with black sand!? It’s so strange!

Folklore says that the black sand is due to the amount of ash created by the burning of dead and eventually getting mixed with the white sands. 

Once a serene beach, Dumas Beach in Gujarat has now an eerie feel to it. The surroundings are beautiful but you can definitely sense the negativity.

Locals and tourists have reported several missing cases from this area. Once a man was found dead on the beach with his tongue out and no one really could not explain the reason behind all these mishaps.

Weird sounds of laughing and crying can be heard even though there is no one on the beach.

The area gained immense popularity due to this. People have also sighted a young girl coming out of the house wearing a red dress. The stories are as intriguing as they can be.

As for their veracity, there is the only way of confirming that. You must pay a visit to the place and find out if the stories circulating about the block have an element of truth in them.

Still want to find out the truth?

25 Most Haunted Places in India and their Spooky Stories

One of the spookiest places in India is the Kakardooma Delhi Court in Delhi. Numerous lawyers have experienced paranormal activities around them.

The entire situation is made even scarier by the fact that vigilance cameras installed inside the court have captured the shutting and opening of doors, files being extracted from drawers, lights blinkering in an inexplicable manner, and the appearance of a hazy figure through the walls, along with the dislocation of chairs.

There is video footage from inside the court on YouTube.  It will give you chills!

Film City? More like Haunted City!

7. Chandan Nagar, Pune

Most Haunted Places in India

Whenever anyone makes a mention of the most haunted places in India, Chandan Nagar in Pune always finds a mention. It’s said that just over a decade ago, a girl lost her life during the construction of a building in the Chandan Nagar locality of Pune.

Several people have reported seeing a young girl dressed in a blood-stained white frock holding a doll in her hand.

A young girl with a doll, the image itself is reminiscent of several horror movies like Annabelle. Anyway, visit this place only if you have a strong heart.

Would you visit the house of Indian Anabelle?

8. Writer’s Building, Kolkata

Writer’s Building, Kolkata

Writer’s Building at the BBD Square in Kolkata proves that no matter how famous a building is, it can always be haunted.

It all goes back to 8 th December 1930, when three young freedom fighters, Benoy Basu, Badal Gupta, and Dinesh Gupta, entered the Writer’s Building and killed the brutal Inspector General, Colonel N.S. Simpson.

The people who work there are familiar with the ghost of Colonel N.S. Simpson, who they say lingers in the main building as well as the BBD Square (which has been named after the three freedom fighters.  People who work there have reported cries for help at night from the vacant rooms of the building).

9. Dow Hill, West Bengal

Dow Hills, West Bengal

Have you ever encountered a ghostly experience in the mountains? If not, you are one of the lucky ones! 

Tourists who have visited this hill station of Darjeeling might not know about this! Dow Hill is a lesser-known haunted place in India and has ghost fables connected to it. This place has a lot of paranormal stuff going on too. 

A small stretch of road in between the Dow Hill and the Forest Office is called the DEATH ROAD. A young headless boy has been seen by the woodcutters who walk down the road and disappear into the woods. Ahhhh! 

Not just this but people also feel like they are being followed and watched by a woman with grey clothes. Locals have also spotted a red eye staring at them too. Some people have gone mad and some even committed suicide after going into this forest.

One more shock! Brace yourself! There is a haunted boys’ school near the woods, which is said to be haunted as well. Locals feel a similar vibe to the forest near this school. Loud whisperings and footsteps have been heard between December to March (it is closed during this time). 

If you “think” you are audacious, visit Dow Hill!

10. Bombay High Court, Mumbai

Bombay High Court, Mumbai

There are friendly ghosts and unfriendly ghosts. Then, there are ghosts out for justice. In the Bombay High Court in Mumbai, one of the courtrooms is inhabited by a ghost.

Those accused in any murder trial are prevented from entering the courtroom. Of course, it being Mumbai, the people of the state have taken it in good humor. This case proves that even courts, judges, and lawyers can catch the fancy of ghosts.

11. Savoy Hotel Mussoorie, Uttarakhand

Savoy Hotel Mussoorie, Uttarakhand

If you are looking to stay at one of the most haunted hotels in India, then Savoy Hotel in Mussoorie is for you. This hotel, very beautiful otherwise, is believed to be haunted by the ghost of Lady Garnet Orme. It’s said that she was murdered with strychnine, which was added to her medicine bottle.

The ghost of Lady Garnet Orme is rumored to haunt the Savoy Hotel in Mussoorie where she was murdered by adding strychnine in her medicine bottle.

Years later, the doctor who was tending to her was found dead in similar circumstances. The case created a buzz and found its way to several books including the Agatha Christie novel – The Mysterious Affair at Styles. That is why, even today, it is considered one of the most haunted hotels in India.

Say Hi to Lady Garnet!

12. Dagshai, Himachal Pradesh

Dagshai, Himachal Pradesh

There are good ghosts and bad ghosts, just like there are good people and bad people. In the town of Dagshai in Himachal Pradesh, an eight-month pregnant wife of a British Army officer lost her life in an accident and was buried at this very spot.

After her death, a marble structure of the lady and her baby being blessed by an elf was constructed in the graveyard.

Till today, there is a popular superstition existing in the region among the wives of the Indian Army officers that visiting the grave would bless them with a baby boy.

Disheartening, right?

13. Kundanbagh , Hyderabad

Kundanbagh, Hyderabad

The 2-storied house in Kundanbagh in Hyderabad is perhaps one of the most haunted places in South India. According to the widespread story, a thief, upon entering the house, discovered the dead bodies of the three owners.

Upon reporting the incident to the police station, forensic reports found the date to be roughly three months prior to the break-in.

On the other hand, the neighbors have reportedly seen the mother and her two daughters walking on the balcony and lighting the candles in the house at midnight, up to a day before the discovery of their dead bodies.

It’s hard to believe such stories, but that’s where the supernatural factor comes in, doesn’t it?

14. Delhi Cantonment, Delhi

25 Most Haunted Places in India and their Spooky Stories

Spirits may not always inhabit old mansions, deserted houses, graveyards, and the like. One example of this is the Delhi Cantonment, considered to be among the most beautiful areas of Delhi. It’s a beautiful place for hanging out and having a great time.

As day gives way tonight, the place displays its spooky side. Both locals and passersby have reportedly seen a woman, clad in a white sari, asking for lifts to those who pass by.

If they are denied a lift, the woman chases the vehicle at the same speed. It can be quite horrifying to think about it.

Why don’t you go for a ride in the Delhi Cantonment area and find out if the ghost of the woman really exists?

15. Shaniwarwada Fort, Pune

Shaniwarwada Fort, Pune

“The story” goes back to the times when ‘Peshwas’ ruled Maharashtra.  After Peshwa Baji Rao’s death, his son, Balaji Rao or Nana Saheb took over the Maratha empire.

He was blessed with three kids named Madhorao, Vishwarao, and Narayanrao. In the Third Battle of Panipat, Balaji died and Madharao succeeded as the next king. Soon, Vishwarao died and in his sorrow, Madhorao died too. (Sigh!)

The youngest one, Narayanrao succeeded as the king at a very young age. But due to his inefficiency to run an empire, his uncle, Ragunathrao took charge on his behalf.

Ragunathrao’s wife, Anandibai wanted Narayanrao out of the picture to rule the empire. She changed the letter originally sent by Raghunathrao for “capturing” him to “killing” him. 

Narayanrao heard a group of assassins coming into his sleeping chambers. He screamed on top of his lungs and asked for help from his uncle saying ‘Kaka Maha Vachwa’ (Uncle, save me). But Anandibai’s jealousy got Narayanrao killed that night by the Gardi tribe. 

His shrieks can be heard by visitors to date especially on the full moon nights. 

How cruel can someone be?

16. Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai

Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai

Sanjay Gandhi National Park is another of the most haunted destinations in India. Visitors to this park say that there is something creepy in its surroundings.

Some of them have even claimed to have come across the spirit of a lady dressed in white asking for a lift to the passers-by.

Ask the guards though, and they are convinced of a spirit lurking about in the park. One must say though, that this park doesn’t offer just a lovely walk!

Will you dare to give a lift to her?

17. Lambi Dehar Mines, Mussoorie

Lambi Dehar Mines, Mussoorie

Mussoorie, what a beauty! In case you haven’t visited this place, you are missing out on a lot. Besides all this natural beauty, Mussoorie has some lesser-known haunted places too. From Savoy Hotel, Pari Tibba to Mullingar Mansion, and Lambi Dehar Mines.

Back in 1990, there was a limestone mine and more than 50,000 workers worked there. Due to safety and security issues, the workers faced lung problems and started coughing blood. Soon, they died a needless death. The mine has been shut since. 

After that incident, people have reported a lot of paranormal activities and the death of a lot of people. Once a helicopter crashed there. 

The locals have seen a witch roaming at night. Also, Gaurav Tiwari, one of the most famous ghost hunters from India has also visited to find the truth, which you can see in the video footage on YouTube.

Natural beauty or haunted places, what type of person are you?

18. Ravindra Nagar, Hyderabad

Ravindra Nagar, Hyderabad

In the year 2012, Ravindra Nagar was affected by a series of suicides. It was only a matter of time before it gained a reputation for being haunted.

It’s believed that the series of suicides were triggered by the wrath of a goddess following the demolition of her temple. Whether or not the story is true, the locality certainly evokes fear among the people.

Don’t make the goddess angry, or else…..

19. Mr. Burton, Kota

Mr. Burton, Kota

The residents of Kota are well-aware of the ghost of Major Burton which stalks the Brij Raj Bhavan Palace, one of the spookiest destinations in India. Major Burton is believed to have lost his life during the Revolt of 1857.

The popular tale has it that Major Burton, along with his sons, was shot inside the palace, and today, the palace is haunted by his ghost. It should come as a relief to know that the ghost does not harm anyone. During the night, however, guards have reported getting slapped in the face.

20. Khairatabad Science College, Hyderabad

Khairatabad Science College, Hyderabad

f you are in school, just imagine , if you are in college, brace yourself, and if you have done with college, congratulations . 

What if you find out, your college is haunted! Uhhh!  

If just thinking about it is giving you chills, imagine the students studying at Khairatabad Science College in Hyderabad. Just off the Khairatabad flyover are the ruins of the Tarapuri building.

It was once a science college but is now a ramshackle building and entering its premises is similar to “maut ko bulawa dena” (calling your death). People say, once you enter the building, you don’t come back alive. 

Mohammed Hafeez, ex-security guard of the college said, “When the college was closed down years ago, the dead bodies used in the Biology labs were not thrown away”.

He also added, “If you happen to pass by the place after dusk, you can see skeletons walking, and sparks”. 

Do you have the guts to get back to college?

21. Mukesh Mills, Mumbai

Mukesh Mills, Mumbai

From Amitabh-starrer Jumma Chumma in ‘Hum’ to Kartik Aryan’s Poster Lagwa Do in ‘Luka Chuppi’, Mukesh Mills in Mumbai has been a popular shooting location for several generations of Bollywood filmmakers. 

Set up by the East India Company in the 1870s, Mukesh Mills was closed due to unreasonable losses in the business. Later, the building was completely burned by a fire, whose origin is still unknown. It was never repaired and has been shut since. 

The movie crew does not prefer to work here after sunset. Some have heard strange noises and reported their things being lost. People have seen shadows, footsteps, and a sense of being constantly watched by someone. Uhhhh! Creepy!

Once a movie actress got possessed and her voice completely changed. She warned the crew to get out of there as soon as possible.

Another case at the Mukesh Mills involved a 10-year-old boy who also got possessed during a shoot. He suddenly started rolling on the ground with his hands behind his back and got back normal in a matter of a few seconds.

Even the watchman of this place has reported seeing someone smoking and hearing music from inside the building.

It is better to be obsessed than possessed right?

22. House Number W-3, GK, Delhi

House No. W-3 Gk

There is nothing new about the tittle-tattle tales of the haunted places in Delhi and around. But only a few daredevils dare to seek out the truth. Have they been successful? Let’s find out.

House No. W-3 in Greater Kailash was the home of an old couple, Yadu Krishnan Kaul and Madhu Kaul. They lived happily until, in 1986, their yoga guru brutally murdered them. He buried them underneath the water tank in their backyard. Miserable!

Eventually, the bodies decomposed, and neighbors informed the police. For days, police and the investigating team tried contacting their relatives and also sent out information through the newspaper, but nothing got into their hands.

The couple was cremated and police kick-started to nab the yoga guru. The house has been abandoned since. Some locals have seen ghosts of the elderly couple around the house. 

Ghost hunters have not been completely successful entering its premises as anyone who tries to enter encounters some sort of paranormal activity.

What was the yoga guru’s motive? Wealth? Property?

23. Grand Paradi Towers, Mumbai

Grand Paradi Towers, Mumbai

Simply iconic! Grand Paradi Towers are one of the haunted places in Mumbai and the story behind these is going to leave you in confusion! 

Home to some of the richest and most affluent people in Mumbai, these three-iconic towers were the most expensive place to live in. Diamond merchants to businessmen all lived happily till one day an elderly couple committed suicide. Soon their son and daughter-in-law died too. The famous Grand Paradi Towers soon became infamous for the suicides.

You will not believe but these buildings have encountered 20 suicide cases since 1998. Also, out of all of the floors, the eighth floor is believed to be one of the most haunted ones. Looking for reasons? Well, this mystery remains unsolved till date! 

Confused? Told you!

24. Saffron, BPO – Delhi

Saffron, BPO - Delhi

Have you ever thought of your home, school, or office built on top of a graveyard? 

Saffron, a BPO in Gurgaon is built on a graveyard and is one of the most haunted places in Gurgaon. It is turning our nightmare into reality!

Legend says that this company had an employee called Rose. She was punctual and diligent and only worked here for a month. One fine day, after a long phone call, she went on an extended leave. After a month, her colleagues asked her landlord but were told no girl lived there. 

They searched and somehow traced her family who said that Rose had died more than 8 years ago!!! What? Of course, her colleagues were brain-damaged. 

If this happened in your office, what would you do?

“Whatever you do… don’t fall asleep.” — A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Spending an evening with your sweetheart at Dona Paula sounds all romantic till you know it’s HAUNTED!

The sinister tale of Dona Paula makes it one of the most haunted places in India. Many legends are related to Dona Paula but which to believe is up to you.

As per the legends, it was a young girl named Paula Amaral de Souto-Maior, a relative of the Portuguese viceroy who fell in love with the local fisherman and married him against her family’s wishes.

One day, Paula’s husband left for the sea and never returned home. She waited for years for him to come and eventually turned to stone. Now her stone body is said to be placed in the Cabo Chapel nearby. Would you visit?

Another lore says that the Portuguese Viceroy got informed about her affair with the fisherman and he stopped her from meeting him. She resisted, cried, and one day jumped into the Arabian Sea and ended her life to be with her lover.

As soon as the Viceroy found out, he put an order to make a statue of Paula near the place from where she jumped and named it Dona Paula.

Many locals have claimed to have seen the ghost of Dona emerging from the chapel on full moon nights wearing a shiny pearl necklace.

Others claim that a pale woman comes from the sea wearing pearls and invites people to join her. The presence of two lovers has also been felt by many tourists.

So, would you dare to take your sweetheart to Dona Paula Beach?

Top 10 Haunted Places in Mumbai

When one hear about Mumbai , what come to the mind are skyscrapers, local trains, beaches and busy crowds. Mumbai, the commercial capital of India , is always bustling with energy and activities and it is very difficult to picture any part of the city as lull or quiet. But here is a twist. Within the busy metro, amidst all the chaos and noise, there are many places best left to their own devices, since they are believed to be haunted. Of course, the place being Mumbai, some of the places that are famous as haunted are post buildings which are filled to their capacity. Maybe the ghosts and human beings have found a way to live with each other.

Anyway, even in these buildings, people like to stay indoors at night. If you are already feeling a chill down your spine, then read about the top 10 places in Mumbai where human activities cease to occur post sunset and other invisible forces take over.

1. D’Souza Chawl

Located in Mahim which itself is said to be a haunted place with its many old buildings, churches, chawls and wells, D’Souza Chawl has to be in the top list of haunted places in Mumbai. It is said that many years ago, a woman accidentally fell into a well that is even now present in the area and that the woman died after screaming for help. Though there are residents in the area, no one dares to be anywhere near the well after sunset as they believe that the ghost of the woman wanders in the area at night. Many even claim to have seen the ghost. Many curious citizens visit the area after having heard the ghost story but nobody dares to lurk around at night.

2. Sanjay Gandhi National Park

sanjay gandhi national park haunted story

Though national parks are famous for wildlife sightings, the Sanjay Gandhi national park is famous for a different kind of sighting and that is of a ghost. Neither locals nor visitors roam around the part at night because of the supernatural activities at the place. It is said that a woman appears from nowhere at night and asks for lift. Many have laughed off the stories but the forest guards who work nightshifts at the park have corroborated the story. That is the reason no one likes to drive down the park at night.

3. Tower of Silence

sanjay gandhi national park haunted story

The name itself is spooky, right? Nestled in Malabar Hills, the Tower of Silence is actually a cemetery of the Parsi community. As per Parsi custom, the bodies of the dead are not buried or cremated. The Parsis leave the bodies in the open here for the vultures to feed upon. They believe that because of this ritual, the earth is not polluted and the environment remains clean. The mere thought of vultures feeding on dead bodies is eerie enough, and that makes this place fearsome. Though no one has spotted any mysterious figures or heard any sounds, those who walk past the place have said that they feel uncomfortable.

4. Nasserwanj Wadi

It is said that the love for earthly possessions comes to an end after death, but not for the ghost of Nasserwanj Wadi . Located close to the Mahim Railway Station, Nasserwanj Wadi was once owned by a Parsi man. It is rumoured that he was murdered brutally near the well over a property dispute. But even after his death, no one could take possession of the property as it is believed that the ghost of the man is still within the property guarding it against trespassers. Many people have also reported being hurt by some invisible force after they tried to wander here after sunset.

5. St. John’s Baptist Church

sanjay gandhi national park haunted story

There are several St. John churches in Mumbai, but the one located at Andheri is where people fear to even pass by. St. John’s Baptist church sounds straight out of a horror flick as everything from ghosts and exorcisms, not to mention a young bride, are associated with it. Built in 1579, it is one of the oldest churches in Mumbai. After an epidemic struck the place in 1840, the church was abandoned. Nobody knows if it was before the abandonment that the stories of a young bride’s ghost harassing visitors came to light. Fed up of these harassments, the people of the area organized an exorcism with the help of a priest in 1977. During its process, screams and shrieks of a young girl could be heard and then they head a sudden splash in the neighboring pond. It is believed that the next morning, all fish of the pond were found dead. Though it is said that the ghost could not be seen after the exorcism, people do not go near the area and the place feels eerie and looks just like those churches in horror films.

6. Aarey Milk Colony

sanjay gandhi national park haunted story

Aarey milk colony is one of the few natural places left in Mumbai. With trees and the greenery, it is really a haven in a place like Mumbai. But at the same time, it is also believed to be haunted. Those who have driven across the colony at night have claimed to have seen a lonely woman wandering in the place with a child in her arms and then suddenly disappearing. Many have claimed to have seen ghosts of women and children at various places in the colony at night.

7. Mukesh Mills

Mukesh mills was a textile mill which was set up by the British somewhere in the 1870s. There was a major fire that almost gutted the entire mill precincts, after which it was abandoned. Today, it looks like a spooky place. In fact, the mill premises can be seen in the Hindi film starring Shahrukh Khan, ‘Om Shanti Om’ (2007). Today, it is used as a location for shooting films. Many actors and others working here have reported to have experience eerie incidents. In fact, it is said that many actresses have refused to shoot here fearing such activities.

8. The 8th Floor of Grand Paradi Towers

A look at the Grand Paradi Towers and you feel amazed by its beauty. It is one of the posh apartments in Malabar Hill area in Mumbai, which is known as the place where the rich and the famous live. It is also one of the oldest buildings in the city having been constructed in the 1970s. There is also a rather strange side to these grand towers and that is, it is known as a haunt of suicides. It is said that at least 20 residents, and that too from the same family have jumped to their deaths from the building. Residents attribute these deaths to supernatural activities in the building. It is the 8th floor that is believed to be haunted, and many of the flats on the floor are still unoccupied. Poojas and other rituals were undertaken by the residents to cleanse the place and ward off spirits, but it seems nothing has worked as it continues to be a haunted place.

9. Bombay High Court

sanjay gandhi national park haunted story

Yes, you read it right. Even the Bombay High court is not spared by ghosts. It is believed that there is a ghost who torments and harasses people who remain present during murder trials at the Court. There are reasons to believe this story as it is said that the ghost has been harassing people thus for the last 30 years. Also, there is another factor about the ghost. It is believed that the ghost is bilingual, which means that if the murder trial is in English or Marathi, the local language, the ghost seems to be appearing there to harass the people. This is one ghost that befits the place it is in – a court!

10. Taj Mahal Hotel

sanjay gandhi national park haunted story

Located at Colaba near the Arabian Sea, the Taj Mahal hotel has always occupied a stature of pride in the minds of the citizens and visitors of Mumbai. But the terrorist attacks on the hotel in 2008 also made it one of unfortunate faces of terrorism and a symbol of resilience of the city. Apart from these, there is another facet of the hotel that is quite well-known and that is, of its position as one of the haunted places in Mumbai. It is said that the chief architect of the hotel committed suicide after there was a mistake and the hotel was built on the side opposite to the side originally planned. He was shocked at this error and could not live to see the mistake. It is said that his ghost still wanders by in the hotel lobby at night. Not just staff of the hotel but even guests at the hotel has claimed to have seen the ghost. It is said that he only roams around and does not harm anyone. Still, just the sight of a ghost makes for a chilling experience. That in itself is spooky, right?

Most of these places apart from a few from list can be visited during day time. May be at night, it is not safe to go to abandoned places as even if the ghosts may have taken a retreat at the time, there might be other dangerous elements at the place in the form of criminals. So, beware of the ghosts and the human beings at the same time!
