The Tuol Sleng Genocide museum is among some of the haunted places in Cambodia and given its sinister past, it’s not much of a surprise.
The history of the torture house saw the most brutal methods and murder for the 20,000 plus prisoners who passed through the make-shift prison on the way to the killing fields.
It’s not known exactly how many people were imprisoned there, but it’s said to be at least 20,000 with less than 10 making it out alive.
Museum staff invite local monks to hold a ceremony there twice a year. The ceremony at the Tuol Sleng is dedicated to the spirits of the victims from the days of torture, which was carried out under the orders of Pol Pot.
The paranormal reports have been just as common and with Cambodia being quite a spiritual country, it’s no wonder Tuol Sleng has become a hot spot of ghosts and hauntings.
Many reports have seen strange and unexplained occurrences, suggesting the building is haunted. Some have reported chains rattling at night, which could be attributed to the souls who were shackled and tortured there.
