Welcome to Temples Zone,
There are many different cultures in the world with all their customs, traditions, rites and rituals, and our mission is to document them all. Our world is changing by the day and all these advancements and developments are the direct result of humanity’s long history.
We invite you to participate in our mission by submitting information about your own culture and history of your country. That would be of great importance as a source of knowledge for the future generations because to understand how we came to be we need to look back to our past.
You can show your beautiful culture and explain it’s history by submitting photos and providing a piece of brief but clear information about it in the Contributors Gallery. If you’re into travelling, surely you came across beautiful places, people, and cultures along the way. What better way to share your experience other than with a photo? Or an article?
Our Temples Zone Community welcomes you all with our hearts.

Haunted Temples and Forts
(Rajasthan – India)
Our visit to the northern part of India brings us to this 17th century fort in Rajasthan called Bhangarh Fort. No one is allowed to remain in its precincts after 18.00 hours until sunrise , a notice board with this warning put up by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) at the entrance is clearly visible. One version of the legend is that a sadhu named Baba Balau Nath lived within the fort area. It was his injunction that any houses built in the precincts of the fort should not be taller than his house, and if the shadow of any such house fell on his house, it would result in destruction of the fort town.
(Bagan – Myanmar)
On our visit to Bagan – Myanmar we were informed by the locals that this temple called the Dhammayangyi Temple is infamous for the mysterious bricked-up inner passageways and cruel history. The locals call it “The Ghost Temple” and claim that this temple is extremely haunted, hence the inner passageways was bricked-up to prevent the evil spirit of King Narathu from leaving the temple. The inner sanctum of this temple is also filled up with debris and it’s unclear whether this is done intentionally by the workers after the Kings death as an act of revenge for his cruelty or to stabilize the dome of the temple which has now partially collapsed due to the lack of maintenance.
(Bangkok – Thailand)
In December 2018, we travelled to Bangkok – Thailand specially to visit the infamous Mae Nak’s Shrine in Wat Mahabut, we wanted to see it for ourself and we also wanted to learn the true history behind the Haunting Legends: Mae Nak Of Phra Khanong. One thing you need to know about Thai culture is that Thais take ghosts very seriously and in this nation of haunted places and ghost stories, none is more famous than the legend of Mae Nak of Phra Khanong. People seeking refuge from the bustle of Bangkok’s streets come to leave their offerings to Mae Nak by releasing fish and turtles into the river.
