Haunted Locations In Pakistan
#1 Mohatta Palace
The Mohatta Palace or مہتا پیلس dated back to 1927 and was built by Shivratan Chandraratan Mohatta in Karachi. Shivratan Mohatta was an extremely wealthy businessman and chose to build this palace for his wife, who is said to have been the love of his life.
Why is the Mohatta Palace rumored to be one of Pakistan’s haunted locations? Rumor has it that the ghosts that make this location reportedly haunted are believed to be from the British Raj era. This beautiful location was built using colored windows, a stunning view of stone walls, magnificent arches, and more! But beauty doesn’t stop spirits.
It is said that during the palace renovation, while it was being prepped to become a museum, some bewitching things were noted by those working on the palace. Workers often complained about moving their work lights when no one was inside the haunted location.
During the late nights in the museum, people claim to see dark shadows moving around at night, hearing strange noises around them, or feeling a heavy or cold presence surrounding them. Underneath are some tunnels that are also said to be haunted. Sadly, most tunnels are not usable anymore because they are too old.
#2 Karsaz Road
Karsaz road, also located in Karachi, is famous for all its paranormal activity, such as the terrifying whispers and apparitions. Locals in the area reported hearing weird noises and seeing strange glowing lights that are so quick to vanish.
It is said that a witch-like entity haunts this area and is seen wandering around in the middle of the night. Some are also saying that many spirits here cannot find peace because of tragic accidents in the area. Some unfortunate locals have had a scary run-in with this beautiful pale woman wearing a stunning, lavish red dress. When asked if she needs help, she vanishes into thin air.
Locals say that as you drive away and look back toward where this woman was standing, you will no longer see this stunning young woman dressed in a lovely red gown. But faced with a terrifying scene of a badly disfigured woman with a distorted mouth and black holes instead of eyes. But it doesn’t end there. She will not only let out a terrible bloodcurdling scream and will chase your car at an extremely inhuman pace.
It is said to be an unknown local myth where no one knows where this pale woman wearing the red gown came from. It’s sad that no matter what was done to this woman, it was bad enough for her to be unable to find peace.
#3 Shah Allah Ditta Caves
These beautiful limestone caves are over 700 years old and surrounded by large old trees and even older caverns inside. Sounds fantastic, right? Well, you are in for a horrific treat! The Shah Allah Ditta Caves are in Islamabad, and most people claim this location is haunted beyond belief.
Most people insist they have heard strange noises from the caves at night. Local myth says that the peculiar noises sound as if it’s people conversating with one another inside the caves when no one is in there.
Most people have also reported seeing dark figures lurking around the caverns at night or even during the day. It is said that this haunted location is best to visit during the day and in large groups, and absolutely no splitting up!
Numerous stories have been told by locals who have been brave enough to visit these caves at night alone. They have been chased out from the caverns by unseen forces, ghost sightings, dark spirits throwing stones, and more at visitors, and feeling a dark and heavy presence around them.
#4 Sheikhupura Fort
Sheikhupura Fort was home to many bandits from all over the countryside because of its strategic location in Lahore. But, back in 1797, The Durrani King, Shah Zaman, purged the building of all the robbers during his invasion of Lahore.
Sheikhupura Fort is said to be haunted by multiple dark figures that lurk around each corner. Many locals have reported strange paranormal activities and have witnessed unexplainable happenings while visiting this location. Many stories tell of people who have heard crying, voices, and other strange noises coming from the fort at night.
#5 Koh-i-Chiltan Peak
Koh-i-Chiltan Peak is known for being the tallest peak within the Chiltan range. But even though this haunted location looks beautiful from afar, it is said to be haunted by forty dead children. The locals say that a couple who once lived there left forty babies on the Koh-i-Chiltan Peak to try to survive on their own! How insane is that?!
On Koh-i-Chiltan Peak, it is said that crying can be heard from those dead babies that are now trapped as ghosts. Stories say that the couple was poor and without a child. Because of this, it sent them on a search for healers to help them become pregnant. One of the healers they found prayed for many nights, and soon the couple had fallen pregnant, but not with just one baby, but forty babies!
Because of their financial status, they could not take care of all 40 babies properly, so the man decided to leave 39 of them on the mountain top. The story has it the mother of the children was lured to the mountain top by the wails of the 39 babies, and she went there with the 40th baby. When she saw that all the babies were alive so far, she traveled to tell the father that the children were still alive and well.
But when she left the 40th baby there to tell her husband, she returned to see that all the babies had vanished, even the 40th baby she had just left there. Forty bodies from those poor children have never been found. Would you visit Koh-i-Chiltan Peak?
