The world's 3 most haunted places 
1. Monte Cristo Homestead, New South Wales, Australia


The site...

A late Victorian mansion, with intricate cast iron lattice work, built by wealthy landowner Christopher William Crawley in 1876. Reputedly Australia’s most haunted house.

The ghosts...

Take your pick. There’s the young child who was dropped down the stairs, the maid who fell from the balcony or the stable boy who burned to death. The most active, however, is the ghost of the son of the caretaker who was found curled up next to the dead body of his mother and chained up for 40 years.

Current situation...

The house currently operates as a B&B and revels in its gruesome past by offering ghost tours. 

2. Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan, India


The site...

The ruins of a fort city built in the 17th century, Bhangarh Fort consists of fort walls, bazars, havelis, royal palaces, and numerous temples.

The ghosts...

A wizard called Singhia and a princess called Ratnavati who spurned his advances. Legend has it that the enchanted oil he hoped would make her love him turned into a boulder when she threw it away – and it crushed him. But not before he cursed the palace, condemning the inhabitants to death, without any hope of rebirth.

Current situation...

Bhangarh Fort is now an archeological site, known as the ‘House of Ghosts’. It is closed between sunset and sunrise, with locals convinced that anyone who spends the night amongst the ruins will never be seen again.

3. Castle of Good Hope, Cape Town, South Africa


The site...

Built in the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company, the Castle of Good Hope is South Africa’s oldest colonial building.

The ghosts...

The first ghost was spotted in 1915 when the apparition of a tall gentleman was seen jumping off the side of one of the castle walls, and then walking between the bastions Leerdam and Oranje. Another famous ghost, the Lady in Grey, was often seen running through the castle holding her face and crying hysterically, but has not been seen since a woman’s body was found during recent excavations.

Current situation...

Other unexplained events include the bell in the bell tower ringing of its own accord and the ghost of a black dog that pounces on unsuspecting visitors, then simply vanishes into thin air.
