Residents of Ravindranagar were shaken by rumors of hauntings in the year 2012 when the locality experienced a series of suicides by some people. The residents would stay awake all night keeping a check while there would be religious mantras and flags put up at the entrance of the houses for safety. It is said that the suicides were committed because of the presence of a spirit which they believe was due to the divine wrath for destroying a temple in the area.
Ramoji Film City
Known as the world’s largest integrated film studio Ramoji film city, it was a war zone once and is also known for supernatural occurrences. While many actors have reportedly seen ghosts in the mirror during makeup and the light men talking about strange figures wanting to push them down from the wall, many violent attacks, especially on women, have also been reported.

Kundanbagh Haunted House
This house they say was broken into by thieves in the year 2002 and dead bodies of the residents were discovered which included three women (a mother and her two daughters).
