7 Places In India Where Tourists Are Not Allowed To Visit Because “Shhh! Koi Hai!”

We dare you to visit any one of them on a full moon!

As a kid, I was fascinated with the Indian thriller/horror television anthology series – Ssshhhh…Koi Hai. I mean at the age of 6 or 7, any kid would be hell scared of such stories which particularly revolve around, ghosts and spirits but I was crazy about the show and as time traveled and I grew up, I realized that my interest has grown stronger. From series to places, from friends’ horror stories to ghost folklore I was interested in everything.

Now, the paranormal world has always been an unfathomable topic and India has always been a place which is flooded with when superstitious beliefs and lores. You won’t read about them only in books, I am sure you have definitely encountered at least one person who has told about his/her real life ghost experience.
I can only assume that the Ghost world is the definition of CRAZY (as I have no personal experience till now) but people who dig deeper in this sphere are crazier.

If you have a knack of exploring such places that are associated with unexplainable and strange spirited encounters and have a wish of meeting an already dead person then brace yourself, we have a list of places that will increase your chances of running into a spirit.
