LA NORIA CEMETERY, CHILE
La Noria is an abandoned mining town with a gruesome history
revolving around forced labour and slavery abuse. The grave yard
features an incredible sight – that of open graves and exposed bones.
Eyewitnesses have reported that when the sun goes down, the
dead rise from their graves and begin walking toward the
abandoned mining town. Locals of Chile have also reported seeing
children inside the abandoned schools as if they were attending
class. The TV show called ‘Destination Truth’ was supposedly able
to capture some evidence when lead investigator Josh Gates
captured what appeared to be an apparition on a FLIR thermal imager.
The image looks like the heat signature of a young child looking from
around the corner and disappearing.
SEDLEC OSSUARY NEAR KUTNA HORA, CZECH REPUBLIC
The Sedlec Ossuary is a small Roman Catholic chapel located
beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, Czech Republic.
This ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of anywhere between
40,000 and 70,000 people whose bones have been used to create
decorations and furnishings for the chapel. It goes without saying that
people claim this place is haunted. The irony however, is that in
spite of the residents bones being used as decorations, the ghosts are
supposedly not angry. According to locals, the ghosts are actually
jovial and pranksters who like a good joke.
CHAMULA CEMETERY, SAN JUAN CHAMULA, MEXICO
Although the place was intended to be a Catholic church in the 1960s,
the priest who comes from the neighbouring village will only perform
a mass once or twice a month for baptisms leaving this area
free for local shamans to use and dispense “magic potions”.
Chicken sacrifices are often done as part of healing ceremonies
in this cemetery.
CEMETERY CAFÉ, AHMEDABAD, INDIA
Tourists eating at the New Lucky Restaurant in the western city of
Ahmedabad, India are sure to get the shock of a lifetime when
they encounter the ancient Muslim graves scattered about the
premises. If you plan to visit this restaurant, I hope you have
a strong stomach.
GLADIATOR GRAVEYARD, EPHESUS, TURKEY
The Gladiator Graveyard site is located in Ephesus, Turkey and
contains the mixed remains of about 67 individuals, all of whom
where under the age of 30. The gladiators who fought here were
the professional athletes of ancient Roman times and they would
battle each other, wild animals, or even condemned criminals
for the amusement of the masses. Surprisingly no real mention
of paranormal activity has been recorded, but when you think
about who is buried here, the place retains its creepiness factor.
THE MERRY GRAVEYARD, SAPANTA, ROMANIA
This cemetery is freaky due to the fact that the creator, local
carpenter and woodcarver Stan Ioan Patras during the 1930′s
decided to carve a picture of the dead person. The carving showed
how they died and then a short poem would be written about
the person in order to create a happy and colourful work. Nevertheless,
the memories of the Depression, World War II, and the
Communist Regime made the graves and stories of the
people sad to look at.
SUICIDE AND BANZAI CLIFFS, SAIPAN,
NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS
Banzai Cliffs is where a historical tragedy took place during WWII
when Americans took over Saipan. Thousands of Japanese
civilians, including mothers and children, leaped to their deaths at
the command of Emperor Hirohito who stated that no Japanese
must be captured by the Americans or they will no longer
be recognized as Japanese.
OKUNO-IN CEMETERY, MT. KOYA, JAPAN
Okuno is a sacred village near 120 Buddhist temples whose cemetery
houses a creepy legend. Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon
Buddhism is said to be resting here and according to the legend will
be reborn along with his followers. It doesn’t help ease the mood
considering that numerous little statues resemble Jizo, a sweet-faced
child monk, and are often wearing children’s clothing like bibs and
caps that are placed by parents who are grieving for their
