4. Tower of silence

Tower of Silence, haunted places in Mumbai

The most scary and hair-raising haunted stories owe their origins to the Tower of Silence. Located on the Malabar hills, Towers of Silence are associated with the Parsi ritual of leaving the body after death in open, for vultures to feed on. The Zoroastrian connotation of leaving their dead out in the open comes from their belief of keeping the environment clean and uncontaminated by a dead body. They believe that earth and fire are polluted by a dead body, and hence a dead body is left for putrefaction in the open air on these Towers of Silence. This enigmatic ritual makes the Tower of Silence a dreadful destination. Imagine walking by a tall tower full of rotting dead bodies. Some gory haunted place in Mumbai, right?


5. Vrindavan Society
