Traveling throughout the country of India, you will encounter several areas that are filled with spirits, odd occurrences and scary tales that you may want to investigate.

Within India, Bangalore has been known to offer a variety of spirits and ghosts that present an array of paranormal activity. In Delhi, some have claimed to see a woman in a white dress, who asks those who pass by for a ride in your car. Eventually, it is revealed that she is a ghost with subhuman qualities, including the ability to run as fast as the cars about her.
In Dumas, which can be located in Gujarat, the ocean at nighttime is eerie and produces odd occurrences in the area. When walking towards the ocean, people claimed to have heard weird noises that insist that you should return home and not to continue walking toward the ocean or else something bad will happen to you. Dogs in the area have chased some, but it is said it is because they too are frightened when encountering the area. The reason why the ocean is said to be filled with ghosts is because the Hindus burn the bodies of their dead and the spirits of their loved ones is trapped in the air.
Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad can be compared to the Universal Studios in North America. When you reach the hotels at this location, the area is said to be haunted. The reason?

When food has been left in the rooms, it has been later discovered to be displaced about the area. Some have witnessed odd marks on the mirrors, including Urdu, which is associated with the language of the sultans. Females have reported the most disturbing encounters with the ghosts here; their clothes have been ripped from their bodies, as well as endure disturbing knocks on their locked bathroom doors.
