Haunted Horrordays IV: A visit to enchanted India

By Noam Elsner

We all know India is an intensely spiritual place. The birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, it’s a country steeped in ancient beliefs and practices. With its history spanning so many generations and incorporating so many cultures, perhaps it’s no surprise that India is also known as something of a hot-spot for supernatural sights and wonders. You may have already seen our posts exploring the ghosts and haunted places on view in Korea, Singapore and Malaysia. Now, prepare yourself for a voyage into the wonders of Enchanted India.

The Kolkata Ghost Tour was initially started to showcase the city’s heritage at night, but its route, passing through many famously haunted areas, made it host to another type of heritage – the ghosts of colonists past, including a woman who died in England but appeared in front of her husband in Kolkata at the moment of her passing.
