If you’ve ever visited Varanasi, then you must’ve surely taken a walk through the city’s narrow streets. Although Varanasi is known for its pilgrimage sites, a lot of people often share their spooky experiences in the city on social media. It is believed that there are many haunted places across the city and people are frightened to visit them even during the daytime. So, let’s take a look at some of those places below:

2. The Chet Singh Fort: This fort is situated on the banks of the Ganga river in Varanasi. It is extremely crowded during the day, but people start vacating it as soon as it gets dark. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a video of a “spirit” being caught on camera at the gate of this historical location had gone viral on the internet. Besides the video, there are a lot of horror stories associated with the Chet Singh Fort.

3. The Manikarnika Ghat: The Manikarnika Ghat is one of the holiest cremation grounds alongside the river. However, people are afraid of visiting this ghat at midnight. In May 2020, Banaras Hindu University’s VN Mishra had shared a photo of the cremation of a body, in which a “figure was seen” above the burning corpse. And, a lot of people suggested that the figure was, in fact, the “soul of the deceased:.
