It was a scary night in Jan 2004 when some Journalists from Arab News entered the most haunted house of Jeddah. Arab News has reported that 16 people have entered this house and never came out of the house.
The most haunted house of Jeddah
The most haunted house of Jeddah stands a hundred meters or so from the seafront on the North Corniche. It is well known among the expat communities in Jeddah.
Taxi Drivers don’t go near this house. People say that it acts as a magnet to young people (Shabab).
16 missing people
Arab News has reported that 16 people have entered this house and never came out of the house. The external world does not even know where they have gone.
Apparent Picture of Haunted House
If you stand in front of the house during the daytime, it sends a strong feeling of something. It is very difficult to narrate it but yes, the feeling is there.
You feel your blood pressure going up and small nervous shocks in your body. You will find so many crows on the roof of the house. Windows of the house are lifeless, but they send a strong message that somebody is still looking from the back of it.
You will notice evidence of fire in every room. Ceilings are black with soot, walls reticulated with curling shards of burned paint and old wiring, melted and cooled, hang in plastic stalactites from light fittings.
Whether the fire was the reason for the evacuation of the house or the fire burnt it after the evacuation, it is difficult to answer.
A scary night in the haunted house in Jeddah
In Jan 2004, a team of Arab News spent a whole night in that house with cameras fitted in almost every corner of the house. In the darkness of the night, the house was fully dark but still, they could see some yellow lights occasionally.
They also heard some strange sounds of small stones moving on the floor. It felt like someone is walking. Sometimes you hear whispers in your ears, although it is not understandable.
Someone can associate with the walk of small creatures on the floor and whispers with the sea breeze coming from the window panes but still, the voice was there.
What did they see inside?
“We saw no ghosts or ghouls but then, the absence of proof is not proof of absence. We did, however, see self-inflicted fear at work, the power of persuasion and bravado powered by boredom. We also came to respect the old lady for her seeming tolerance of our presence and appreciate what she seemed to have despite her age and her state of disrepair: Dignity.”
