LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Salimgarh Fort.
A fort older than the
Red Fort (Lal Quila), but located on an island very close, this
Old Delhi ruin is often considered to be the most haunted structure
in a city where tales of genies, magic and spirits are not uncommon.
It is situated on the Yamuna river over a
kilometer north of the Lal Quila and was built in the year 1546 by
Salim Shah, the then king, after which Aurangzeb the Mughal emperor
succeeding Salim Shah had it turned into a state jail.
Many Indian patriots
were imprisoned for long years at the fort during the Freedom
Struggle against the British Rule in India.
Unexplained ghostly sounds are reported
more often than actual sightings. Footsteps are heard echoing across
the premises. Sounds of 'vicious laughter' a said to occur from time
to time then fade away if investigative attempts are made. For a
fort so old and with a history as a prison during the reign of blood
thirsty Aurangzeb it is not surprising that the echoes of the horror
are heard through time.
