The spookiest places to visit in Delhi this Halloween: Prune

If visiting new and interesting places is at the forefront of your mind this Halloween season, why not check out these haunted architectural marvels in the capital city of Delhi? Whether you believe in anything otherworldly or not, a thrilling time spent with your friends at these haunted places might just be what you need to bring in the fun occasion of Halloween. Also, it is a far safer option to check out these spots, rather than to be a part of crowded mainstream parties in the Covid-era.

Let your travel guide Prune take you through these must-visit spooky places of Delhi!

Feroz Shah Kotla Fort

In this 14th-century fort located near the popular Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium by the same name, the locals have felt the presence of djinns here. Even today, not many visits this place, and the ruins of the monument are found eerily silent. However, on Thursdays, the locals gather together at the fort with milk and grains to pray to the djinns and appease them.

Agrasen Ki Baoli

You must have come across the Instagram-worthy pictures of people posing at the beautiful architecture of Agrasen Ki Baoli. But did you know that is it one of the haunted places of Delhi too? There are claims that there is a supernatural presence here, and the famous Baoli (well), built by Maharaja Agrasen in the 14th century, was once filled with black water that pulled people into it and killed them. As you walk down the 104 steps in the well, you will feel the creeps for sure and may hear noises without knowing where they’re coming from here.

Malcha Mahal

A visit to the Malcha Mahal located in the Chanakyapuri area of Delhi will be a spine-chilling experience for sure. This hunting lodge was built in the 14th-century by Firuz Shah Tughlaq. But now, the place is claimed to be haunted by a supernatural presence. And to make things spookier, you will also find hundreds of bats that have made the ruins of this structure their home.

Khooni Darwaza

The Khooni Darwaza, which was also known as the Lal Darwaza earlier, has a dark history behind it. Here, three princes of the time were brutally killed at the order made by their stepbrother Jahangir. And many freedom fighters were hung here as well. While it is just one of many versions of the story, there are claims that one could still feel the bone-chilling presence of ghosts and hear their screams in this historical monument.

Chor Minar

Are you familiar with the popular party hub of Delhi Hauz Khas? Then, you must know that it is also one of the spookiest places in the capital city. The Chor Minar located here holds several myths surrounding it. The upper part of the old structure has peculiar holes in them. And one of the myths is that these holes created during the rule of Alauddin Khalji held heads of people punished at the hands of their leader after getting caught with thievery. And it’s claimed that these thieves haunt the Chor Minar at night.

Jamali Kamali Tomb and Mosque

The tomb area of the mosque located in Mehrauli Archaeological Park is another scary spot where people have heard voices echoing here. People claim that the voices come from the graves of the two saints. The place is recommended to only visit during the day, as it might be unsafe at night. You can still enjoy the thrill of exploring this haunted place with your friends between 10 am to 6 pm.
