Built as a hunting lodge for the Tughlaq rulers during the Tughlaq era, this 14th-century building located near the Delhi ridge is a hub for creepy and unexplainable events.

Stretched over 10 km of radius, this serene and gorgeous forest is equally scary and haunted at night. There have been rumors that people hear incessant chatters and sounds all the time if they happen to stumble across this jungle late in the night. A resting site of many Sufi saints, the place has several mausoleums and is always teeming with paranormal vibes.
