5. National Library, Kolkata

National Library of Kolkata is not just a room brimming with knowledge. It has a lot of history to itself. Not only this library is said to have some of the best book collection but is also said to be filled with supernatural presence. A library full of ghosts, like a room full of books was not enough to scare us.

The history of the National Library is also intriguing. After Mir Jafar built it in 1760, he was forced to abdicate his throne and had to gift it to Warren Hastings in 1780, the first governor general of India. It was in 1836 that it turned into Calcutta Public Library but was later turned into an Imperial Library and was not open to the public. It was only after India’s independence that this library was changed into National Library of Kolkata and was finally opened to the public.

There are many haunted stories related to this library. People have reported seeing spirits walking. It is also said that the footsteps of governor’s wife can still be heard. There have been many deaths within its premises too. At the time of its renovation, 12 workers died in an unnatural accident. There are also stories about a Bengali boy going into the library to complete his research and never coming back out. What adds more to the spookiness of this place is the fact that the Archaeological Survey Of India found a chamber with no kind of opening or door on the ground floor in 2010. Moreover, no details or the content of what was in that room were ever released by the ASI. Mysterious and Scary, this surely adds up to being one of the most Haunted Places in India.
