You must have heard stories about a ghost who wanders in the night wearing a white attire and following you till you get exhausted a lot of times. But did you know that this story takes place almost every night in many areas of the national capital known as Delhi? While one side of this amazing city is full of shiny infrastructure and bustling with life, the other side is full of darkness and horror. If you happen to be in Delhi and you do not want to ruin your nights, then you must know about these terrifying places in Delhi which are claimed to be haunted. Let’s check them out.
1. Delhi Cantonment Area
Delhi Cantonment Area is a safe site to be at during the day times, but when the day ends and night takes over, it is advisable not to be here during the wee hours. A lot of people have claimed that they encountered a woman in white attires asking for a lift. When they denied or sped past that figure, they were chased by the woman at the same speed as that of their vehicle. This is indeed a spooky encounter, and you would certainly not like to come across this nightmare if you want to go home safely.
2. Agrasen Ki Baoli
Agrasen Ki Baoli seems like an innocent piece of architecture during the daytime, but the advisory hanging on this monument says that it is a crime to visit the place after sunset. It is reported that those who have been here during the nighttime have experienced hearing strange sounds of women, children and old men crying, laughing and yelling. Some of them even saw shadows of people running faster than ever. If this does not scare you, then probably the next place on this list will do the job.
3. Khooni Darwaza
Khooni Darwaza seems like the name of a B-grade horror movie from the late 80s, right? But what you did not know is that it is an actual place in Delhi which is haunted by the spirits of freedom fighters who were hanged to death on this gate. The place is said to be extremely eery during night time and you will hear the screams of the victims mentioned earlier if you ever walk past this structure during the night. It is also said that the spirits of this gate do not intend any harm, but you can never trust these ghosts. Can you?
4. Delhi Ridge Area
Delhi Ridge Area is haunted by the spirit of a British man who is seen walking around with an old rifle. This man is known to cause havoc to anyone who happens to encounter him. Again, the place is deemed to be safe during the daytime, but the temperature drop of this area in the night assures the presence of a negative energy which means harm.
5. Karkardooma Delhi Court
Karkardooma Delhi Court is still operational and every day a lot of cases are presented in this court. However, a few years back, a group of lawyers saw that the furniture of this court moved on its own, files were moving, drawers were opening and shutting on their own. There was no explanation for this incident and it was concluded that it was the job of a paranormal entity. It is prohibited to visit the court during the night, and if you happen to be of curious nature, you can certainly break some rules and visit this place. But remember, curiosity killed the cat.

7. Haunted Tree from Dwarka Sector 9
The Haunted Tree from Dwarka Sector 9 is something that you would want to avoid not just in the night, but in the daytime as well. It is one of the unluckiest places in Delhi as those who come across this tree experience terrifying activities in the night, and some of them have suffered major accidents on a twisted turn in the daytime. This tree also has a great Hindu temple by its side that can be visited in the day, but that does not diminish the effect of evil powers that haunt this area.
8. Mutiny House
This house is said to be one of the spookiest places in Delhi. It was constructed during the British era and was made to respect the death of British soldiers in the mutiny of 1857. The house is said to be haunted by the spirits of the same soldiers and people have reported seeing the severed head and body parts of the same soldiers.
The haunted places mentioned above should not be visited at the time of night if you want to stay safe both mentally and physically. The dark energies of these places stick with you, and will not leave you until they have done the damage. If you plan to visit these places, do it in the daytime when it is safe. Otherwise you might get into some serious trouble.
