Do you believe in ghost? Have you ever seen a real ghost or haunting experience before? I met an haunting experience myself. However today I am not going to talk about that ghost story, I am going to talk about the famous haunting mension at Relau, Penang.
Actually I did not realise there is such a place in Relau until yesterday, I went for dinner with Michael Cheah, the webmaster and the place we are having dinner is very near to this haunting mansion. Despite of some free time, I have suggested to explore this place.
Wikimepia GPS location:
The drive from Relau “Kei Tak Sek” food court only take 5 minutes and surprisingly the haunted bungalow just located beside a recreation park. It is so wired, how come this haunted building is still located beside the “Taman Metropolis Relau” (Relau Metropolitan Park)? Why the city council didn’t demolish off this scary place? Aren’t there any residents complaint about this?
This is the view from outside the haunted scence. I was dare enough to get close for photo, while Micheal waiting for me inside the car.
According to the local legend here this building has been here for hundred years. This building is very strange, there is a swimming pool inside this mansion. Normally, the swimming pool will be build outside the house instead. However, this one is so wired.
It is learnt that a woman committed suicide in the swimming pool at the mansion after her parents objected to her relationship with a man. Another rumour has it that two people drowned in the pool, of whom one was the owner’s son. Nearby residents dare not venture near the mansion at night.
The Star Newspaper even interview a factory operator M. David Raj, 19, who hangs out there with his friends and cousins for the past five years, said he had on several occasions smelt fish curry while they were there at about 7pm. A friend who uttered some vulgar words was sent tumbling down the stairs and a nun claimed that she saw many souls there .The prayer session was done to fulfill the late nun’s request.
I only managed to take the pictures of surounding area only without exploring deeper as the time is getting late.
You can see there is a temple that built just next to the haunted mansion. It is said that this will keep the souls inside the mansion so that they will not leave this place to hurt people.
Below videos are the experience of a excavation team from Hong Kong television show that explored this place. After this movie, try to ask yourself “Does Ghost Really Exist?”
