We all know that Mumbai is a city of dreams, glamour, and entertainment. But it also has a darker side that hides many secrets and mysteries. Yes, there are indeed certain places in the financial capital that are said to be haunted by ghosts, spirits, and paranormal phenomena – especially haunted houses. 

These places have witnessed tragic events, gruesome deaths, and eerie occurrences that have left a mark on their surroundings. Over the years, they have become tourist attractions for those who prefer to tread their chances with the less travelled path. 

Do you find your curiosity piquing? You might be tempted to visit these places if you are looking for a thrill or a challenge. But be warned, these are not for the faint-hearted. Here are 5 haunted houses in Mumbai that you should not visit alone.

  • Grand Paradi Towers

Grand Paradi Towers is a luxury residential complex in Kemps Corner with a sinister reputation. The towers have witnessed 24 suicides since 1976, all from residents belonging to different families - most notably the Dalals. The Dalals, who lived on the eighth floor, committed suicide one after another, leaving behind notes that hinted at some family dispute. Over the years, three generations of the Dalal family committed suicide at the Grand Paradi Towers complex by jumping to their deaths. Many believe the residential complex to be built upon a burial site, citing it as an eerie influence on the society and its residents.

  • The D'Souza Chawl

The D'Souza Chawl in Mahim is a crowded and dilapidated housing area with a friendly ghost. According to the locals, the ghost is of a woman who fell into an open well and died while fetching water. Since then, her spirit has roamed around the chawl at night, especially near the well. She does not harm anyone, but she scares anyone who sees her. The well has been covered now, but the ghost still lingers.

  • Ram Sakit Building

Ram Sakit Building is a residential building in Dadar, Mumbai. It is thought to be haunted by the ghost of a woman murdered in the building. The murder occurred many years ago, and the woman's body was never found. Some people believe that the woman's ghost still haunts the building and that she has been responsible for other deaths and accidents that have taken place there.

  • Poonam Chambers

Poonam Chambers is a residential building in Worli, Mumbai. It is said to be haunted by the ghosts of all the people who died during the 1993 bomb blasts that destroyed a wall in the building. Many night watchmen and residents have reported eerie phenomena and incidents at the complex. It is therefore believed to be a residential complex home to many haunted houses in Mumbai. 

  • Vrindavan Society

Vrindavan Society is a residential complex in Thane near Mumbai that was established in the 1980s. According to unofficial accounts, a suicide by a man in the building no. 66B has resulted in eerie events occurring in the residential complex ever since. Instances of guards being slapped in the middle of the night by an invisible presence also fuel the fire to the apparent haunting at this place. Despite these stories, many residents live at the Vrindavan Society quite peacefully. 

Final Thoughts

These haunted houses and apartments in Mumbai have become part and parcel of the metropolis’ urban legends, fuelling a lot of gossip and interest from travellers and tourists. While the mysteries surrounding them might never be solved, these haunted houses in Mumbai will continue to trend in the news as long as these buildings remain in existence.
