Lawang Sewu


Semarang, Indonesia

BUILT: Unknown
STATUS: Still standing

History

Lawang Sewu, which means “one thousand doors” in Indonesian, literally has 1,000 doors. Built during the 18th century and left over from the Netherlands Colonialism, it features Netherlands-style architecture. In addition to the terrifying sensation of getting lost in such a large building, there is also a paranormal element.

From the inside, there are several spirits lingering around, such as a headless man, a woman from Holland who hung herself in the doorway, and an unknown person who supplies mysterious screaming sounds.
