Popular Destinations You Had No Idea Were Haunted

Halloween is still more than a month away but it’s never too late to start preparing. Gearing up for the season you can start narrowing your plans to visit haunted spots. Some are little known but are absolutely worth a visit — if your heart can handle it, that is. Here are list of Popular Destinations You Had No Idea Were Haunted.

Bhangarh Fort, Bhangarh, India

Built in the early 1600s by King Sawai Madho Singh, this fort protected a small city of roughly 10,000 people and included a royal palace.  According to legend, a sorcerer fell in love with the King’s daughter and in the process of trying to seduce her, he died, cursing the town to be destroyed.  Shortly thereafter, an invading army destroyed the fort and killed virtually everyone who lived there.  Locals refuse to live anywhere near the ruins, and have ensured that it’s closed after dark due to the presence of various ghosts that have been reported roaming through the complex.  There have been cases where people have been at the fort at night, only to turn up dead in the morning.

Paris Catacombs, Paris, France

Containing the bones of thousands of people, these catacombs were never really meant to house human remains.  Due to overcrowded cemetery conditions in the 18th century, many remains were relocated to the spider-webbing tunnels beneath the city.  While the bones are laid out in artful arrangements, stories of discontented spirits abound.  Many people have reported seeing apparitions as well as being touched or shoved, and that some people have disappeared within the catacombs altogether.

Moosham Castle, Salzburg, Austria

This 12th century castle was the site of countless executions of women condemned of witchcraft throughout the Middle Ages.  As a result, many of these women have come to haunt the castle in spirit form, with apparitions ranging from sad to angry ones, and even a few headless individuals.  Many people report hearing voices and screams, as well as a particular spirit that tends to hound visitors in an attempt to make them leave.

The Queen Mary Hotel, Long Beach, California, United States

Once a transatlantic ocean liner and now a permanently moored hotel in California, the Queen Mary has been touted as one of the country’s most haunted hotels, and taking into account its bevy of ghosts, it’s not hard to see why.  Two different women drowned in the ship’s first class pool, and now their ghosts are often seen there.  Various apparitions have been seen throughout the bar and lounge areas, most in period dress.  One particular room, B340, displayed a great deal of activity, but is now no longer available.  Coincidence?

The Forbidden City, Beijing, China Beckons Tourists to Visit One of the Creepiest Places in the World

Home to Chinese royalty for centuries, this impressive imperial complex was also the site of a long string of murders over the years, from calculated assassinations to crimes of passion.  Many apparitions have been sighted by tourists, staff, and guards, ranging from former to concubines to supposed royalty.
