From inexplicable natural occurrences to alleged extra-terrestrial activity we look at the top cursed locations in the world
Straits of Messina, Italy
This thin stretch of water that connects the most eastern part of Sicily to the western tip of Calabria is well known to be associated with ancient myths of a cursed part of the world. The natural whirlpool that is created by the unique marine ecosystem has been linked to the Greek legend of Scylla and Charybdis.
There is an imaginary triangle surrounding the tiny Atlantic island which is referred to now following the extremely mysterious disappearances of planes and boats that enter the phantom area between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. Many pilots and captains are very superstitious when it comes to travelling through the cursed space due to so many freak accidents that seem unexplainable.
Jharia is famous for the coal field fire that has bizarrely burnt underground for well over a century. The constantly burning ground has always seemed a very curious natural occurrence which over time has caused various incidents of destruction which have led people to believe it is cursed land.
Kasanka National Park, Zambia
By mid-November every year around eight million bats migrate to the small national park in Zambia, which is allegedly the highest density biomass of mammals in one place in the world as well as the greatest mammal migration known to man. The dark bats that fill the skies above the African plains can seem very haunting.
Nevada Triangle, USA
In reference to the Bermuda triangle, the area in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range has been branded the Nevada triangle due to the number of tragic aeroplane crashes. People have claimed that the triangle, whose vertices are at Reno in Nevada, Fresno in California, and Las Vegas in Nevada, is related to extra-terrestrial activity.
