Unexplainable Sounds At Bukit Larut Taiping
Who does not love a good mystery when hills or mountains are portrayed in it? From Fraser’s Hill in Pahang to Mount Kinabalu at Sabah, there is a story that speaks of supernatural creatures or strange happenings occurring there. One of the most famous supernatural mysteries that are still popular among the natives in Perak happened at Bukit Larut, Taiping. Bukit Larut is a popular location among hikers and isolated retreats away from their busy lifestyles. The story goes back to the Second World War. It is said that prisoners were transported to Taiping to work on the construction of buildings and roads at Bukit Larut. Nevertheless, due to the torture, they endured at the hands of their supervisors, many of the prisoners lost their lives while working there. That is why the hikers that had gone either for a hike or had stayed overnight on the hill had shared their experience of hearing loud footsteps or being touched by something invincible to them.
Roaming Spirits At Kellie’s Castle, Perak
From Castle Freak to The Haunting Of The Hill House, whenever we hear a horror movie that shows huge mansions or castles, it will automatically pique our interest in it. We will be more excited to watch it. It could be because there are not many castles or mansions in Malaysia which are popular for any supernatural encounters. There is a famous castle in Malaysia that is frequently reported by either the tourist or the management for many occurrences of spirits encounters. That castle is the ever-popular Kellie’s Castle that is located at Perak, which was opened for tourism in the early 2000s. Although Kellie’s Castle is open for tourism, there are still many reported cases of tourists claiming that they had encountered the spirits of the original owners of the castle roaming around. The story goes back to the original owner of the castle, Scotsman William Kellie Smith whose dream was to build the castle as a gift for his wife for giving birth to his son. However, due to the workers being infected with Spanish flu during the construction, there was a delay in finishing the castle on time. Not only that but it was also said that Scotsman William Kellie Smith died on his trip back to Scotland, which devastated his wife, causing her to move back to her homeland with her kids. This has caused the construction of the castle to stop and then it was abandoned for almost more than 80 years. Many believe and claim that the spirit of Scotsman William Kellie Smith is still found lingering at the castle, as he was not satisfied with leaving his incomplete castle behind. On top of that, some even said that his daughter also died in the castle due to the Spanish Flu so her spirit can be seen roaming the corridors searching for her mom.
To sum it up, these are the top two most popular places in Malaysia that pique the curiosity of many tourists in visiting them in hopes of capturing supernatural creatures or spirits in action. Nonetheless, the stories that are shared around these places are still yet to be proven with any solid evidence. Let us just enjoy reading supernatural mysteries until the day we encounter them ourselves.
