Unlike others, it is not a grand 5-star hotel. But it still deserves to be in this list. Several paranormal experts confirmed it as one of the top haunted hotels in the country. A room located behind and at the corner of reception area has been considered to be haunted.

Due to these reasons, the management stopped renting out such rooms and kept it vacant.
The 178-year-old Brij Raj Bhavan Heritage Hotel was once the palace of last royal family of Rajasthan. In 1980s, it was then transformed into a hotel. The palace is considered to have Major Burton’s ghost. Indian sepoys killed him, along with his two sons in 1857 in central hall when he was living there as a British resident. It is believed that the ghost doesn’t harm anyone. It just slaps those guards who sleep away on duty.
