A place with a name such as this has got to be haunted, and Khooni Darwaza does not disappoint. People have reported blood dripping from the ceiling during monsoons, and voices screaming out during the night. The monument gets its name from a cold-blooded murder committed by one William Hodson. Here, three sons of Bahadur Shah Zafar were shot at point blank range when William was in charge of disbanding the rebellion of 1857 for the British. The spirits of the three princes still float about within the monument.
