Do you believe in ghosts? If so, then beware of these places. If not, then visit these places for a hair-raising experience.

Changi Beach

Location: Changi beach is located in Singapore

Legend behind this: Thousands of Chinese were tortured and killed during the Sook Ching Operation as they were suspected of being anti-Japanese.

The experience: Strange crying and screaming are reported by people. The heads of the Chinese dead bodies are sometimes seen flying everywhere and headless bodies walk around the beach. The scariest thing is that the ghosts leave blood stains. During nights people observed dug holes that appear as if they were used for burying bodies.

Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery

Location: Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery is located at Midlothian, Illinois.

Legend behind this: According to a legend only men were buried here and hence the name. Many officers have reported that black magic and occult rituals have been occurring in and around the graveyard. Hence it is believed that the ghostly powers are severe here.

The experience: Ghost lights and voices, apparitions, strange recordings and sightings of unbelievable creatures are commonly reported by people.

Monte Cristo

Location: Monte Cristo, Australia’s most haunted mansion is located in Junee, New South Wales.

Legend behind this: Mrs Crawley, the owner of the house never came out of her home after the death of her husband in 23 years of her remaining life except for two times. After her death her ghost haunts the place particularly her former room.

The experience: Bodiless ghost, phantom face in the window, floating apparition, strange and ghostly voices, automatic turning on and off lights are some haunting experiences of the people. Some people reported that when they entered the boy’s bed room they were breathless and turned purple and almost died, they became normal after coming out from the room.

Bhangarh Fort

Location: Bhangarh Fort is on way from Jaipur to Alwar in Rajasthan, India.

Legend behind this: According to a legend, Singhia, a black magic tantrik cursed the palace that everybody would die in the palace and their souls will stay there for centuries without rebirth. Another interesting point is, all the houses in this area are without roofs because whenever a house is built with roof, the roof collapses.

    I visisted The Screaming Bridge of Maud Hughes Road in Ohio and it was SCARY. I didn’t know if it was haunted in the first place at all. I was staying at my aunt’s house and she told me not to go. Being stubborn- I didn’t listen and went anyways. Nothing really happened but then I heard a scream. I thought maybe it was coming from somewhere else but then I got freaked out and ran. I don’t know if it was a ghost or not- but it was creppy noe the less. If you like suspense- visit one of these places and it’ll be better than a roller coaster ride in Disney World.

    Well…I went to bhangarh fort very recently (abt 5 days before). We had enjoyed a lot of stories about this place. So, I decieded to visit this place with my other friends. We entered into this city at 4pm and temprature was very low due to winter. We had our evening tea within the city and discussed many stories from local residents. They suggested us to visit inside the fort in sun light and started explaning the reason, i.e. (in words of that person) anyone who enters into this fort in night will start behaving abnormal after that. In night time, local residents use to hear sound of bells and drums. Sometime sound of running horses and howling womens. Still, we decided to enter into the fort in moon light and we arranged some drinks and meals along with us. Finally we entered into this area, which is about 2 kms away from civilian area. Initially it was nothing to see there but later at 12.40am we realised that someone is walking inside that fort and a natural light in stressing him/her. We tried to captured that picture in our handycam. After finishing the recording, everybody was crazy to see that but nothing came into the recording except darkness. We were scared but wanted to stay there for sometime. So we decided to wait for another an hour but we could not see anything afterwards. But onething is sure, that this place is really really creepy. I would like to visit this place with all facilities of quality recording now.
