Lawang Sewu, Indonesia

Lawang Sewu is a historic building tied to colonialism in Indonesia. At the end of World War II, the Indonesia army fought Japanese troops right in front of the building. There are also stories of people being tortured within the walls of the premises. Without a doubt, its gruesome history brought about tales of hauntings and paranormal activity.

Built by the Dutch in mid-19th century as the headquarters for the Dutch Indies Rail Company, there are stories of headless ghosts wandering about the corridors and sightings of a young Dutch lady who apparently committed suicide in the building. Lawang Sewu has a long history and many tales to tell, but it, unfortunately, stands abandoned and dilapidated till today. A 2007 Indonesian horror movie, Lawang Sewu: Dendam Kuntilanak, was also filmed here to depict the eeriness and spooky tales of Lawang Sewu.
