Recommendation by Lemi

By day, this abandoned building in Jawa Tengah, Indonesia, is a stately landmark of the country's history; but, at night, the darkness brings back the reality of imprisonment, torture, and executions that took place underground. In the early 1900s, the Dutch built this building as HQ to The Dutch East Indies Railway Company. By World War II, the Japanese had taken over the building where it made its bloody history. Today, stories tell of headless ghosts and vampiric ghouls (known in Indonesia as “Kuntilanak”) roaming the halls of the building where they now dwell.
