Haunted Places of Kolkata


Like every other densely populated old cities of the country, Kolkata has its own share of haunted places. Old buildings and heritage sites that has been in this city for a while and has haunted past, are scattered all over. Some people say its all made up, some believe them from the core of their hearts while some try to find rationality among the widely spread stories.


The National Library – Alipur

This one is probably the most famous of all the haunted spots in the city. There are a few stories around this complex probably due to the mammoth size of the building or the huge piece of land this building acquires. Out of these stories, two are the most famous versions that are listed here. In early nineties, the British Government had ordered a renovation of the old block and construction of a new complex. It was during this renovation that as many as twelve labours lost their lives in an accident at the site. It is said that even to this day, the spirits of those workers lurks inside the new complex during the darker hours. In another version of the story, it is believed that during the same period there was an English grad student of a reputed college of the city who visited the Library in search of study material. He met with an accident and died at the gates of the library after one such visit of his to this great building. During his last days at the library, he was studying some letters of the Victorian era which was stacked in an obscure corner of the main library building. It is believed that the spirit of this young Bengali student visits the library during odd hours to complete his research paper. Some of the people who have noticed such paranormal existence would testify with the details of how they have seen letters all scattered on the desks when the library gates open at 10am in the morning or even how construction issues arise inside the complex and how they are miraculously solved in some moments. There are eyewitnesses who say that they have heard footsteps of former Lieutenant Governor of Bengal, who used to reside in the same building.

The Royal Calcutta Turf Club – The Race Course

This is a story of mid 1930s of a race maniac called George Williams who loved his horses more than his family and his job at the secretariat. He had as many as 5 horses, out of which his most famous and dearest was a pearl white horse called Pride. Pride was rightly named as she won a few tough races, fame and money for her master. Williams used to spend most of his time in his stable at the race course complex and mostly with his piece of pride. With age, came some complications in the health of Pride and she no longer was the queen of the tracks. Her last race was the Annual Calcutta Derby where she lost the race and Williams lost a lot of fortune. She was found dead the next morning on the tracks with bullet injuries. Though the sources close to Williams and the RCTC had reportedly admitted that she was killed as per the traditions of killing a horse when she is aged and not well, there is another version which states that Williams, in a drunken state, had killed the horse out of sheer frustration. Even as the entire Turf racing fraternity mourned the loss of such a beauty on the tracks, the spirit of Pride is still believed to be seen on the green patch during late nights of Saturdays. Some witnesses have said that they have seen a patch of white fog gushing past the tracks giving an impression of Pride. Mystery or myth, Pride remains alive in the stories of her existence, even as today’s Kolkata remembers her as the “William shaheb er shada Ghoda


South Park Street Cemetery – Park Street


Perhaps every Kolkata guy has experienced the night life of Park Street. A few, however, has experienced the late night life there. The primitive name of this famous residential cum office area is Burial Road, primarily because of the existence of South Park Street Cemetery. Many of us

confuse this old address with the Mullick Bazaar Cemetery. But still this old burial place, built in 1767, remains in the shadows of the new age High rise buildings and flashy lights. The entry to this place gives you an eerie experience right from the big iron gates to the marble stone studded lanes that take you through the rows of graves bearing British names. Stories of other-worldly figures lingering inside the campus, has been doing rounds for many years. No specific person could be identified as the spirit. Sources and eyewitnesses confirm white fog of humanly figure has been spotted regularly at the grounds, in the early mornings and late evenings. People residing in the adjacent buildings prefer to keep their cemetery-faced windows closed most of the time.

Rabindra Sarovar Metro Station – Mudiali

The other name in which The Kolkata Metro is famous is “Paradise of Suicide”. It is a commonly known death trap with 4000 Volts of current running in the famed third line (a third rail that runs parallel to the tracks and is a little elevated on de-conductors and is usually covered with a wooden plank). Shockingly, around 70% of all people who have lost their lives in the tracks of Metro have committed suicide at Rabindra Sarovar Metro Station. There are stories of how people, travelling to the station in the last metro which reaches the station at around 10:30pm, found some eerie images of figures vanishing in a fraction of second. There are even rumours of shadows moving on the platform on late evenings.

The Writers Building - BBD Bag

The present Writers' Building in Calcutta was first started as early as 1690. Within the periphery of the old fort, the junior writers or clerks of the East India Company used to stay in mud hovels. So it came to be known as the 'Writers' Building'. On 25th June, 1695, these hovels were destroyed by a tempest. Then, the second Writers' Building was constructed inside the old fort. In 1706, the new one-storeyed brick-built building was built. The other Writers' Building stood at the place where the G.P.O. or Fairly Place stand today.

This building has a haunted past too. It is believed that the spirit of Captain Simpson of British East India Company, who was killed by the famous revolutionaries Binay, Badal & Dinesh, still resides in the building facades. The most notorious part of the mammoth building is probably the fifth block where he was shot. Roadside vendors outside the building have often reported of listening to footsteps and voices from within the building well after the earthly hours. Even the busiest blocks of the power house gets deserted after 7pm.


The Hastings House - Hastings

The old residence of the Governor-General at 20B, Judges Court road has another interesting story to tell.


Stories are that Warren Hastings visits the campus in search of some old papers he had lost. His footsteps could be heard. Also doing the rounds are the story of his infamous wife and children, all of whom had unnatural death within this place, comes often to visit their old residence in horse drawn chariot. Shadowy figures are a common thing that many students of The Women’s College of Calcutta University, which now owns the property, have seen. There are stories about how an young students suffered terrible injuries while playing football. Playing any sorts of sport within the campus has become an unwritten rule for all students now.





The Kolkata Dock – Khidderpur

This place was originally owned by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Awadh. After his kingdom was snatched from him by the East Inda Company in 1856, The Nawab took refuge in the area which now holds the Kolkata docks. There are a few eerie stories about the complex. It is believed that the spirit of the Nawab resides here to take revenge on the British Empire. Since Nawab was a fond follower of music, hair rising stories of how classical music being heard also do the rounds.

The National Museum – Chowranghee

The museum was transferred to it’s current location in 1878 with two galleries. Now the gigantic building holds close to sixty galleries of art inside its premises. The place is a well known haunted location of the city. People have heard a lot of sounds made by the traditional anklets worn by women during dance performances. It is believed that the owner of the properties which lies at the residence guards them from thieves. Directors or the organization, past and present, have refuted all these claims.

  7. According to me, all the old places in Kolkata, are related to ghosts or spirits.Because of many reasons, as some of them are closely related to that place, may be the person had died in that place, may be it was the persons favorite place !
    May be ...!!! Anything is possible, because sometimes truth is stranger than fiction !!!

  31. this is no fun .i am an sbi employee at the maidan branch (jeevan dip) and has experieced errie feeligs at the maidan station while catcing the last metro somedays. but dont think that ghosts will come and harm you (like in movies).you know the feeling is like somebody is standing beside you or somebody is looking at you.somebody telling that he has seen a ghost is complete bullshit.random passengers dont experience this and mostly people like us who travel to maidan everyday has been the target for the supernatural.i was just on the net tonight and suddenly by chance this site came over while surfing just thought that my experience will thrill some young people like me. so if you are attracted by supernatural make sure that you catch the last metro at maidan station some night and believe me ,your sixth sense will surely warn you about something. and belive me the metro police has also encounterd this things but they always deny this for the sake of the passengers(kids girls and elderly people.

  32. c wat i know is like one of the frnd said above : that if God exists then evil spirits or watever name u give do exists...i dnt knw whether these places are haunted or not but i myself done a reasearch (even into it as passion of knwng unknwn)has been gone through details of spirits nd how they work ,whom they target..it is not like dat all spirits are harmful nd blood savy..defntly not !! even spirits will show their existence to persons whose nerve impulses are weaker than others..it is easy fr them to get in touch wth them...spirits shows their images flashes ,eerie moves becoz they demands :help" frm u...wen people commits suicides their desires,longings,wishes remains un fulfilled whch they want to ,but cant becoz they r nt into any body...ya even fearful spirits exists but nt in cities,towns only in vacant areas like sub urbs,where people r nt much....as a reasearcher i knw many writers gt engaged themselves in finding the truth...Ancient Europe nd their people engaed themselves in the worshippng of ghastly,harmful spirits to meet their purposes...in Hinduism "tantra sadhna" has also a part where spirits are used as servants...we have 7 layered atmosphere ,the highest is unseen nd unreacheable fr normal human beings,the spirits reside their..frm their they try to get in touch wt humans ,as the humans r the priviledged as much closer to God or good spirit..even Abraham lincoln,Bnkim chandra chattopadhyay saw their dead bodies befre taking their last breath....it is also knwn,that Rabindranath Tagore used to get in contact wth the spirits of his near ones,especially his daughter and wife....

This stuff is all but true.Only makes for interesting reading or watching-have you tried watching Supernatural?People love such stories because they are unreal and help us to escape the harsh realities of life-such is the motto of entertainment.In our present day I dont think these stories are anything more than good fiction.The reason I visited this site was well because Dean and Sam seem to be always visiting such sites.Ha ha!

    2. My mother also use to stay in the hostel and i have grown up hearing stories about hastings and even today when i hear the same stories i sumtimes have goosebumps .. my mother and also two friends of her < still in touch > have shared many of their experiences.. there occured many paranormal activities when they used to stay there.. sounds of the hoofs of horses could be heard,, the sound of flowing water could be heard as well.. my mother once was seriously sick,had malaria, and she was bedridden for a long time and that is when she faced the trouble as everyone would go from the room for something or the other during daytime and she had to stay alone and she spent sleepless nights during that time .. she felt the shoes of her room mate coming towards her,the sounds were loud and specific enough for her to understand that the sound was of the shoes.when she opened the eyes everythng was normal.initially she had serious troubles with this and they used to spend nights with the lights of the rooms on.but later she became strong enough and probably that has made my mother so strong that later in life nothing could scare her cz she believed that this causes no harm.they tell u abt their existance.recently she spent nights in my grandfather's house alone after just 1 week of his death.her list of bravery in this context will get out of words if i start writing.. ultimate conclusion : THE STORY OF HASTINGS IS 100000000% TRUE .. MY MOTHER FACED IT

  40. Love your post Mr C, as for the many sceptic comments I would like to clarify that the stories are all hearsay.. like a folklore, there lies the charm.
    On a more selfish note could anyone send me a link or article or just the name of a place that covers British homes and cantonments during the pre independence era in and around kolkata , Darjeeling. My aim is to find a historical yet secluded place preferably less commonplace and almost unknown. My email id is vernalshowers@gmail.com thanks ,Paro .

I'v been a lot of times to Rabindra Sarovar metro station, at different times of the day, ranging from early morning to late night...i have never experienced anything unusual over there, but yeah, at night,or even during a bandh day, when the platforms are almost empty, if u think about the numerous people who have committed suicide there, u do get an eerie feeling...but if u ask me, thats just ur mind playing a trick on u...and as for south park street cemetry, be prepared to experience stuff which u wont be able to explain...for me, that kinda 'stuff' had happened...

  50. Well,u can even now taste the spiritual feelings at New Secretariat Buildings on the floors of above 9th floor to 11th floor. Usually, the floors are now well protected by Police authority, as for instance several suicide cases were occurred on 11th floor-A-block, 9th floor-A block, 6th floor-A block/B-block very recently ! But if you enquire boldly you would find nothing, but better talk to the senior Caretaker staffs who lock the doors after late evening hours finds always troubles in almost every weeks, many of them saw automatic bathroom water falls in basins .......... oftenly saw one young lady with skirts typing on typwritters in dark room when the doors are well locked from outside. Except those events we feel some evils existance & they stays there in every deserted corridors..........which are impossible to proove. We are senior workers for more than 30 years in the same buildings, we never saw the spirits but their existance are well prooved.

  52. I have heard these stories earlier too...considering the history of the city of Kolkata, these facts may not be that unreal.... the city has been a witness to lots of horrors and mysteries over the last 300 years or so...so nobody can surely claim that there is no paranormal activity going on. Even modern structures are said to be haunted. Does anybody know about the WIPRO building in sector V? Its top floors are said to be full of paranormal activities. I believe in these things as in most cities of the world, these things have been reported. Lets not jump the gun and say haunted places do not exist! There may be a lot behind it.

  64. I hope that the ghosts are not scared of us ... Because I think that the human beings are more dangerous than the ghosts ... Why don't they attack the rapists and the politicians rather than moving around in the buildings and metro stations aimlessly ... I'm really angry with them ... They should do something purposeful rather than moving around meaninglessly in the buildings and stations for years ... If God is not ready to help us,at least ghosts should do something. I hope that they'll not take any revenge for making comments on them ... Can anyone tell me which kind of ghosts are the most dangerous

  69. The Rabindra Srobar Metro has a series of irri stories. The Last metro riders often feel somebody standing very near to them. tTypically when the last metro at 10:14 enters if u stand near the line a felling that some body is just behind you and about to push you has been experienced. For the story of the lady in white boarding at Jatin Das Park and getting down at Rabindra Sarobar and finally disappearing in the staircase leading to Tolligaunge Rly Station, I am not positive. Ghosts are not that easily experienced I think. Any body been at 1-Garstin Place at night?

    we urbanites are so sunk in our worldly wants that we think desires allthe time and are disconnected with nature.yes!!! there are haunting when we become aware of the nature and surronding at large we do enconter such phenemenon. yes i hv seen it once in north calcutta.those who deny it they must think that while returning via last metro an't there mind was preoccupied with 1.tommorow's schedule, 2.office politics, 3.girl freind etc etc

  72. Dear All,

    Thank you so much for your views! For people who feel that this article is pure crap, please understand that I myself has not seen anything in these location. Having said that, these are popular haunted locations where a lot my friends and acquaintances have faced situations. However, I have been to all the above locations and a few more and have not felt like that, yet, I have felt a certain eerie situations at a few places. My article here is basically on my studies that include a lot of eye witness' account and few on basis of stories circulating in the people who work in this field!

    I earnestly thank you all for your feedback. Keep posting such comments to improve my work. Guess this might motivate me in posting more interesting topics!!!

    Regards

  75. Well Rabinder Sarovar metro station is not haunted atall. :) I have lived next to Rabinder Sarovar and have used and walked past this metro station late in the night. At around 2 am also but never did I feel anything spooky. So I dont agree. Even delhi has metro stations where alot of people have committed suicides but that cant be enough to name them haunted.

  76. Kolkata has been nicknamed the City of Palaces and also the City of Joy. City of Palaces comes from the numerous palatial mansions built all over the city and City of Joy comes from the lively and friendly and loving behavior of all the citizens all over the places making the city more lively and enjoyable. Very nice and informative post about Kolkatta. It it very nice place to have real estate properties.

  86. I read all.I don,t believe in ghost but dont go to argue with the soies given above because there are many things which is unbelievable but it happens and science is unable to explain that.

  87. The places I have read here..I think its all are fake..
    But It is true that they exist.They are moving with us.You can feel it If you want.
    1st time I also thought that Its all are fake.
    Ghost???? Ahhh mannn its impossible..

    I told that to one of my colleague.I astonished he told me "I want to try to see them..but you know how to see them?"
    --No,I am trying to find it.
    And after my office hours we two tried a lot.
    read many different types of books,visited many houses,temples..
    But we failed.we thought that it is wasted of time.
    suddenly a miracle happened.And finally got a path to find them.
    Its long story how we find the path..
    We decide to see a girl....She was murdered by her boyfriend.I knew her.

    One sunday night we have tried this one And we got the successful result.We have the record.I am a software engineer.Now I am designing a new website about all the paranormal things and also the miracle things happening around us. where you can know and talk all about the things.We will proof all those scientifically.
    Thank you...

  88. Hello Guys,


    There is nothing called GHOST Demons etc. Its all in the head. The main reason is the EMF which is most prominent in this places.

    I can guarantee that if you go to this hot spots with a EMF detector you will be astonished with the ratings.

    If there is anyone who can guarantee me to show something out of this world, please mail me @ ayan708@gmail.com

    I would be really eager to experience this once for real.

    Thanks

  94. I visited the Park Street Cemetery along with three of my friends at noon and stayed there for a couple of hours but there is no ghost. The place is very scary and I bet no one can go there at night. It has got huge trees and shrubs and snakes. I talked to one of the people working there and asked him if he had seen any ghost. He replied " I've been working here from 1975 and there is no ghost here because the soul of a person can stay at one place continuously for 12 years and these graves are over 200 years old." But a funny thing happened which is really weird. I tied my shoelace keeping my feet on one of the tombstones and somehow I cut my finger at that instant and bled which I didn't tell my friends. Another incident occurred with my friend. He wears many amulets which we call 'maduli' in Bengali on his neck and waist which automatically got torn off and fell to the ground. Its really weird because they weren't loose or something but somehow it happened. Lastly when we were returning home late at night after watching a movie and dinner my friend's foot got stuck in the metro door and he would've been killed had we not saved him in time. He also stood on a tombstone.

  95. Rabinda Sarobar metro really have something. I didn't know about that place before reading this article. But now i would like to share one of my feelings there. It was late night around 9.45 pm and the last train from dumdum.
    I was the only person who stepped rabindro sarobar. While I was talking towards Essclator i sense somebody walking towards me.But i was alone.As somebody is hiding behind those bars.but nobody was there. Thats all i sensed.All I can say due to my job profile(late night shift) i walked alone many times but never have such feelings before

  98. Hi,

    I have studied all the comments stated above. Well, ghosts...whats ghosts? The definition? Can anyone help?
    I have studied this subject well. There are no scientific evidence that approves existence of something called ghosts. However, since time immemorial, across all countries in the world and across all cultures and religions around the world the concept of Ghost remains. Had there been absolutely nothing then this concept wouldn't have come in existence. There are something which needs serious study. Over last few decades there has been photographers who have tried to capture images of ghosts. Taking into account All that comes out from this centuries of literature from various religion, cultures, countries and researches i would like to define ghosts as -

    " A mass of energy which has intelligence to act and is limited to 1-2 senses (vision and additional voice in certain cases), which are generally non light reflective (and therefore non visible), however, due to changes in earths magnetic forces and geological forces or due to impacts from cosmic energies becomes partially visible. These are not equivalent to a dead man's soul but are just forms of energy which are in the midst of changing form. "
    A person's / animal's mental thoughts if developed are a strong source of energy waves. Ghost's are nothing but these mental waves that continue to hold on as a consolidated energy object even after the original body of the person has been destroyed. These can only be reoriented towards another form of energy but cannot be destroyed as per law of physics. Energy remains and will remain, only way to tackle with these objects is to change their forms by application of outside energy.
