Delhi, is also called the city of the djinns. Djinns are spirits, also called as ghosts. While, over the years,Delhi has become an even more fast paced city with its Delhi Metro and the numerous swanky cars that populate its wide roads, there is a dark side to the city as well. Today, I shall let you in with a little secret-the secret of the most haunted place in Delhi. This place-popularly called BHULI BHATIYARI KA MAHAL- is behind the imposing statue of Lord Hanuman near the Jhandewalan Metro station. It is actually a small palace cum courtyard which was supposedly, constructed by a Sultan in the 14th century , in Delhi.The idea was to construct a
a hunting lodge for himself..Some people say that it was meant as a secluded place for one of his queens.
Over a period of time, this place acquired the reputation of a haunted place as the locals reported of hearing strange sounds of men and women. The place is quite way off the main road that connects Central Delhi to the western parts of Delhi. Police is usually posted here to deter the more adventurous from visiting the premises. There is another theory regarding the history of the place-namely, it was probably the abode of a neglected queen who was a Bhatiyari in clan. Bhatiyaris are a clan of Rajputs who inhabit the western part of India. Then there are others who say that an enraged peer or faqir cursed this place after a spat with the people in authority. There is still an extant water tank near the palace. Above all, a very curious place to visit.
