5. Lohaghat – Mukti Kothari
Situated in the Champawat district of Uttarakhand, Lohaghat has one of the most terrifying places in India. The Abbey bungalow, perched on Abbott hill, is known to be the scariest place in Uttarakhand. People living around it have heard scary noises and are afraid to go in the bungalow. In the initial days, the bungalow belonged to a British family who donated it to build a hospital. The hospital became famous and but one day, a new doctor joined who claimed to predict the death date of patients.
Whenever a new patient was admitted in the hospital, he used to act like God and predict on which day he/she was going to die. The spookiest part of this was that the patient used to die on the exact same time and day. According to the locals, there was a secret hidden behind this prophecy. The doctor used to take innocent patients in a room called ‘Mukti Kothari’ (room of freedom) and kill them to prove his prophecies right. Thus, it is said that the ghosts of those patients still roam around in the bungalow.
