The Al Qasimi Palace in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) has a reputation for being a spooky old place.
And with good reason.
The mansion was reportedly abandoned more than 20 years ago by its inhabitants after being tormented by mysterious occurrences such as furniture being thrown around and faces appearing at windows.
I have been there and was too scared to investigate. Maybe if someone had gone with me, I would have gone. I was afraid to go in by myself, not because of it being haunted, but there could have been squatters there.
It looks creepy. And the fact that it sits on top of a hill only adds to the drama.
I read, it cost over 136 million to build in today's rate.
Ras Al Khaimah is the poorest emirate. It looks like one of the developing countries rural areas. I would be outraged that the sheikh spent that amount of money on himself! Not to mention, it is one of the ugliest palaces I've ever seen-anywhere!
I remember this palace. You can't miss it, high on a hill. Rumor has it, the place has many nasty jinn in it. I have to admit that it is intimidating. I had no desire to explore it. Did you work in the Gulf Jackie?
I don't know where this place is but that is the ugliest palace I've ever seen! I wouldn't live in it.
It looks bizarre. What are those capsule looking things on the sides? Maybe an alien made the house and the capsules are really rockets that will carry the house back into alien land.
I have not heard of this palace. I posted a video on pharoahs tombs in Luxor. It's said that it is one of the spookiest places on earth. I don't know about that but it is maybe the most fascinated,
Never heard of it. And I have no idea where this place is. All I can say is, what a ugly house!
A lot of money spent on this place and it ends up uninhabitable. Grant it, the palace is an eye-sore, especially if you're forced to look at it, being on a hill and all. I feel bad that it's a waste. Too bad they didn't know it was haunted before it was finished. I wonder if the construction crew was aware of the ghosts?
I agree with Pam and Jackie. All that money! Then they can't live in the house! A shame on so many levels,
I like the palace. What's wrong with it?
