Sunken villages, derelict amusement parks, and vacant mental hospitals are just a few abandoned places with creepy appeal.

Bhangarh, India

1 of 11

Why It’s Eerie: In 1783, this dusty, rusty city in Rajasthan was abandoned overnight after a guru cursed all residents to death, without rebirth. Today it’s forbidden to visit after sunset; locals and tourists enter during daylight hours only. What remains are eerie ruins, which include two abandoned Hindu temples, several banyan trees, and a few troops of macaque and langur monkeys.

How to Experience It: Known for its luxed-out haveli, Amanbagh, just 10 miles away, offers guided twilight tours of Bhangarh (doubles from $770).
