Karbala Graveyard just near to residential government colony Batukeshwar Dutt Colony short name B.K. Dutt Colony. It’s almost abandoned these days. Its been 33 years since the last person buried here. With time people coming to meet their loved one buried here are decreasing. The reason being almost all graves have no next generation alive.
Karbala Graveyard is a different place with a lot of trees, birds and lots of peacock in evening and morning. Why I said different? I have visited so many cemeteries that includes Nicholson Cemetery, Delhi War Cemetery, Lothian Cemetery etc but this surrounds lots of nature and human sounds. It has a road connected with it where almost all time traffic passes but inside no human only deads whos memories are fading away.

Whats Haunting In Karbala Graveyard
Apart from all history above this place is now been counted as the most haunted place of Delhi for unknown reasons. In the first look, this abandoned graveyard looks mysterious, silent and sad. Locals say there is nothing wrong with this place and they never heard anything except strange sounds similar to animals.
After all these hearings BikingMystery decided to visit Karbala Graveyard and spend a few hours of daytime inside this place. It was a rainy day of August 2018 I visited Karbala from Safdarjung Airport Flyover side. I reached there at 4 PM it was all silent inside except sounds of birds especially peacock. I entered through broken wall, looks like this place is a restricted place for general public. With time sun started to get down silence was taking over the Karbala Graveyard. Even after dark, I did not feel any negative or paranormal. Around 7:30 PM I came out.
