The traffic isn’t the only thing that’s horrific about Bangalore. There are plenty of spots that boast their own, particular history of horror. In keeping with the time of year, here’s our round-up of haunted spots in Bangalore.
The Wanderer of Kalpalli Cemetery
The numero uno haunted spot in Bangalore, this bungalow has attracted several curious visitors over the years, with many reporting an eerie energy and objects such as crosses, half-full wine bottles, and a scary statue. The old, dusty car that sat decaying in the porch; the overall dilapidation of the facade; the simple curiosity of what a bungalow like this was doing in the centre of town – all of it added to the mystery. The bungalow belonged to a pair of elderly sisters, one of whom was stabbed to death in September 2002. It may now be razed, but that doesn’t mean we think the ghostliness is gone.
Sure, cemeteries in themselves are pretty spooky, no questions there. But this cemetery off Old Madras Road has had several visitors reporting the sensation of unidentified presences, as well as video recordings of ghosts moving around. In particular, stories of one mysterious gentleman who disappears as soon as you approach him seem to be ever in circulation.
A favourite haunt for late-night jaunts, the Airport is home to more than a fleet of flights. The airport staff believe strongly in the existence of a ghost – a lady in a white sari with long hair – doing the rounds near the runway and the cargo areas. Watch your back.
Victoria Hospital’s Gothic architecture isn’t the only thing about the hospital that’s spooky. Ask the students or the security guard here, and they’ll warn you of hungry ghosts that, years ago, caused a packet of biryani to vanish; another ghost lived in a tree above a tea stall, and drank up the students’ tea.
