This is a list of reportedly haunted locations in India, the largest country of South Asia.


  • Bhangarh Fort, Bhangarh, Rajasthan: Bhangarh was purportedly brought to ruin as a consequence of the curse of Baba Balanath. Another legend attributes it to the curse of the sorcerer Singhiya.[1]
  • Brindaban Society: A large residential complex in Thane, Maharashtra, is considered haunted after a man committed suicide from building No. 66 B.[2]
  • Dow Hill of Kurseong: Dow Hill in Kurseong is considered by believers to be one of the most haunted places in West Bengal, especially in the corridors of Victoria Boys’ School and in the surrounding woods. A number of murders have taken place in the forest.[3]
  • Dumas Beach, Surat, Gujarat is said to be haunted.[4]
  • Ghats on The Ganges - Under Howrah Bridge, Kolkata: The site of several deaths (either due to suicide or drowning accidents), believers speculate that many spirits wander this sacred river.[5]
  • Grand Paradi Towers, Mumbai, Maharashtra: Said to be the most famous haunted building in Mumbai, as it was the site of several suicides and deaths.[6]
  • Hastings House, Alipore, Kolkata: This is one of the most ancient buildings in Kolkata. It was constructed by Governor General Warren Hastings, and later it became the Governor's residence. Now, Calcutta University runs a women's college here. Many students have reported to see ghosts inside the building and on the grounds.[5]
  • Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb: Located in the archaeological village complex in Mehrauli, Delhi, the complex is said to be haunted.
