Haunted Places in Kerala That You Must Not Visit Alone!

If Kerala's culture, food, diversity, people and about everything were sewed in a thread, the necklace made out would be one of a kind! The colossal green grounds and rustic rooftops are what make Kerala a remarkable page in your journal. But no matter how colourful the necklace will be a black bead will always exist in the panel. The local-born Keralalites have many haunted folklores. These stories are hard to digest, but the heart poured by the storyteller makes everyone a believer.

Look for yourself, here are some of the haunted places in Kerala you wouldn't want to visit alone!

1. Lakkidi Gateway

The lore says that when the place was on the verge of being discovered, during the colonial period, a British engineer took aid from a local man named Karinthandan to find the place. But when they achieved their goal, the British man killed Karinthandan to attain fame for himself. Many years later, the travellers felt the presence of some paranormal entity. A priest was called, and a cleansing ritual took place. He didn't completely eradicate the spirit but bound it to a tree. The stories never ended though; now it revolves around the same tree. Natives say it's Karinthandan's spirit who haunts the place in the name of freedom.

2. Bonacaud Bungalow

Bonacaud Bungalow is a place you should but you can't avoid in the dark. The story is from the colonial times when the place was known for its flawless tea plantation. One night the owner's child was murdered notoriously. The couple went to London never to return, but they left something behind. From that day, the soul of the innocent child wanders around the Haunted Place in Kerala. People have reported the sounds of glass breaking and a child crying from the wrecked house.

3. Trichur Forest

The mounting popularity of camping and trekking has led to more and more travellers making their way through these woods. Some courageous people have witnessed the ghost of a 7-year-old boy, sitting alone on an empty spot, looking in the obscurity. The natives believe it to be a friendly spirit who causes no harm if not disturbed. No one has tried to bother the boy. No one knows the repercussions of disturbing the loner soul.

4. Sabarimala Temple

The place could not be labelled as a horror house but a magnificent supernatural miracle. Sabarimala Temple is devoted to the deity of Sree Ayyappa. Followers believe that Lord Ayyappa defeated a malicious demon on 14th January in the same place.  According to the tale, every year on the same day, the demonic figure tries to enter the temple, but Lord Ayyappa defeats it. This cycle continues, and the lords get the victory every time, which is marked by a flash in the sky which many people have claimed to witness.

5. Kariavattom Campus Road

Taking a midnight walk would not be a great idea here! Kariavattom Campus Road has its fair share of horrid encounters. People travelling in midnight have reported a shady figure of almost twice the size of any human being walking around this Haunted Place in Kerala. It just walks, sometimes ahead and sometimes it follows. People have also observed some unearthly activities around Hymavati Pond. The pond was named after a girl who committed suicide by drowning herself to death in the same pond. It is believed to be one of the most haunted places in Kerala.

6. The Weeping Ghost

Research says, while asleep only our sense of hearing functions. That's the reason we wake up to noise late in the night. And waking up in the middle of the night by any sound is pretty normal. But what if it's a crying sound, what if the sound is reaching out to you every night! Nothing is more frightening than a mystery dipped in darkness. A family moved into a new house in Kollam, and the same night they heard a sound of a weeping child coming from different rooms. They tried to chase it, but the sound started coming from different rooms. The crying never ended; it kept coming closer and closer every night till it became a whisper. The family called upon a priest who performed an exorcism in the house. Since that day, the crying stopped, and the family had their first deep sleep in days.

7. The Ghost of Vadhuthala Mathai

The place near the Perandoor Canal is believed to be haunted by the ghost of Vadhutha Mathai who had abused a young woman who complained to the local Lord Raja Edappally. The Lord sentenced the accused to be hanged to death. The execution took place near the canal, and since that day, people have experienced certain mysterious activities. These encounters led to the occult of the ghost of Mathai lingering the place. The story has such a stronghold that the native fishermen make offerings to the spirit before going to work at this Haunted Place in Kerala.

8. Cloning Ghost

This spirit makes you question yourself; do you actually know your companions? This notorious ghost tends to play with its victims. The legend says that the evil spirit in Marayur has an ability to transform itself into anyone on certain days of the year. It is risky as the ones in contact went missing. No trace of their life was found after the encounter.

Debating over paranormal existence is a complete waste of time. Those who do not believe have never experienced the Goosebumps, they will never know how it feels like if someone was constantly watching at the middle of the night, and they will never know how it is to be alone in a place packed with darkness. If they want to try, these places are the best we can afford!
