Agrasen ki Baoli- One of the most haunted place in India:
People of ancient India used to worship different elements like fire, air, earth, sun, water. For worship of water they had created temple, step well, reservoir etc. Agrasen ki Baoli on Hailey Road near Connaught Place Delhi India is one of the ancient step well created. It is about 60 meter long and 15 meter wide traditional shaped with 103 steps made up of red stone . Although some part of Baoli was permanently immersed into water but there exist three floor which visible above the water. There is no historical record of creation of Agrasen ki Baoli but it is assumed that this step wall was initially created by King Agrasen from the epic era of Mahabharat which was rebuilt by Agrawal community in 14th century. Although it was created to reserve water for worship but now it’s almost dried up and became the house of bats and pigeons. With a great historical background this public place even ticket less entry not attracting visitor. Actually Agrasen ki Baoli is said to be one of the most haunted place in India.
Most people who visit Agrasen ki Baoli feels that something invisible following them. The echoing of bets living there adds fuel to the fire. It is believed that the Baoli was the house of evil spirit form ancient time and calls people to offer their lives and raises the water level. It is also claimed that the water of this Baoli was black and dirty because presence of some evil supernatural power there.
All these may be a bull shit but I think in all these haunted stories this historical step well losses its importance and most of the people refuse to go there. The step well which was worshiped in ancient time have no importance today.
