Found this online in a website,,

Dark forces of the night lurk only when youíre alone. Haunted houses, murky waters, wailing woods and more exist in namma Chennai. Here are a few places to visit for the strong-spirited (pun not intended):

Theosophical Society, Adyar. This place is known for its green surrounding, set against Adyar River. But it is also a spooky landmark for the mild-hearted and a serene hideout for the adventurous.
The banyan trees that populate the Theosophical Society are more than 100 years old, and inhabited by bats. For some, the thrill is in resting under banyan trees that sheltered at least 500 bats at a time.


Broken Bridge, Adyar
This bridge was built over Adyar River, north of Elliotís Beach in Besant Nagar. The area is considered unsafe due to the fishing hamlets and slums surrounding the bridge. The assault on the nose, due to the open sewage that Adyar River is, makes it even less favourable. However, this is one of the many places in Chennai that is called spooky simply because it is deserted. What can be enjoyed here are sunsets.

Blue Cross Road, Besant Nagar
This road is a shortcut between Theosophical Society and the Blue Cross Animal Hospital. There are rumours that a person had committed suicide on one of the tall, willowy trees that border the lane. Since the area is not commonly used, drug peddling and prostitution became common on Blue Cross Road.
Usually the non-functional street lights, combined with the thrill of no-escape, since the entire stretch is either bordered by high stone or wired walls, makes this a regular haunt of bikers.


Indian Institute of Technology, Guindy
The institute is said to harbour a romantic piece of debris from the past. Located behind the Aerospace block, the remains of a bi-plane have become a favourite for treasure hunters. Urban legend has it that the plane crash-landed on campus 30 years ago during an air show.
However, most IITians say that the plane is only one part of the spooky campus. Since only a small percentage of the campus is populated by humans, students say that venturing into any untouched territory is as good as an adventure.


Haunted House, Valmiki Nagar
According to a source, this house is located off Thiruvanmiyur Beach, in 3rd Seaward Lane, Valmiki Nagar. While driving classes are regularly conducted in this lane, at night, spectral movement has been seen or/ and heard by many of the residents in the area.
Often children dared each other to climb over the locked gates to spend one night in the haunted house. Rumour has it that the house has never had permanent residents since the ghost of the woman who committed suicide continues to haunt there.

Very interesting. I cannot comment on the last 2, as i haven't been there.
The first three places i always felt had a calm reposeful quality. As rightly said that, i was at the broken bridge for sunset and the blue cross road while biking in the nights (returning from the beach mostly).Under no circumstance can i call them eerie or haunted. I wouldn't know if I'm strong spirited

Is it not the job of CBCID to find out the mysteries.

You cant outsource them to others. Come on, get cracking on the job.

Jokes apart, Those are all myths.

But there are phoney fires and fake smokes..I strongly believe that the word spooky has the word "myth" as an implicit synonym

Ghosts dont exist!
You prove me that they exist..I will immediately prove that they dont.
There are lots of things that science hasnt unravelled YET.
All the things that science doesnt understand, people call them supernatural.. The purview of the supernatural has been on a consistent decline. The day we know everything.. there will be no ghost and a bit paradoxical but there will be no God too

Muneesh, I found this on unexplainable.net so copied it for you. The OP wants to know about Chennai specifically though

______


Traveling throughout the country of India, you will encounter several areas that are filled with spirits, odd occurrences and scary tales that you may want to investigate. For example, if you visit Bombay, you may catch sight of an intriguing, well-known ghost, whereas in West Bengal, you will encounter a location that is cursed by the numerous murders that have taken place in the area.



Within India, Bangalore has been known to offer a variety of spirits and ghosts that present an array of paranormal activity. In Delhi, some have claimed to see a woman in a white dress, who asks those who pass by for a ride in your car. Eventually, it is revealed that she is a ghost with subhuman qualities, including the ability to run as fast as the cars about her.



In Dumas, which can be located in Gujarat, the ocean at nighttime is eerie and produces odd occurrences in the area. When walking towards the ocean, people claimed to have heard weird noises that insist that you should return home and not to continue walking toward the ocean or else something bad will happen to you. Dogs in the area have chased some, but it is said it is because they too are frightened when encountering the area. The reason why the ocean is said to be filled with ghosts is because the Hindus burn the bodies of their dead and the spirits of their loved ones is trapped in the air.

Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad can be compared to the Universal Studios in North America. When you reach the hotels at this location, the area is said to be haunted. The reason? The studios have been built on top of war grounds of the Nizam sultans. Some of the odd things that occur throughout the studios include lights that fall from the top of the studios, where workers who have sat by the lights, have been pushed from their post by an unknown force, obtaining injuries. When food has been left in the rooms, it has been later discovered to be displaced about the area. Some have witnessed odd marks on the mirrors, including Urdu, which is associated with the language of the sultans. Females have reported the most disturbing encounters with the ghosts here; their clothes have been ripped from their bodies, as well as endure disturbing knocks on their locked bathroom doors.

If you are interested in a haunted hotel, you may want to seek out the Raj Kiran Hotel in Maharashtra, Lonawala. Bed sheets have been known to be removed from the beds of guests that stay on the ground level, as well as during their sleep. In Thane, there is a Vrindavan Society where in their #66B building, a man who committed suicide is the source of numerous oddities. A security guard who was in charge of the area has reported many strange things. Physical encounters have occurred where an unknown force slapped one guard so hard that he blamed someone who was near him that did not commit the act.



Other haunted locations in India include Mumbai, where a woman died from falling into a well, who now haunts the area. The Shaniwarwada Fort in Pune holds the haunted cries of an assassinated heir to a western province kingdom. The Bhangarh Ruins is the site of haunted temples and shrines by the mountains. On Dow Hill in West Bengal, the numerous murders that occurred in the area leaves the forests cold, dreary and dark. A small, headless child can be seen wandering about the road close to the woods.

Lightbulb

alien abductions, santa claus, the easter bunny, ghosts, virgin births, talking plants, etc. ad nauseum you name it someone believes in it. Aren't humans extraordinary in their capacity for belief of just about anything.

Not me, however. ... Oh, I forgot. I DO believe with all my heart in the concept of "the jinx" which is ready to pounce as soon as you start bragging about something! I'm the best, I'm going to win, blah blah blah --then, suddenly you're toast. Of course, a jinx is totally ridiculous as it's just another name for an "evil spell" or "hex" which I totally don't believe in.

Nevertheless, the second my husband says, you're going to win on that slot machine, I know I'll lose (scientifically, I WILL lose, the odds are totally against me) and think he "jinxed" me. Guess I'm human.

Let me reiterate again....

I dont believe in Ghosts

Ghosts does not exist, most of the times, when you try to reach for a scientific answer, you get nothing. So, they dont exist.

Where God is there, Ghosts cant be.

The pleasure is all mine Anna..Trust me,it was sheer pleasure reading your journal entries. It raised a few questions in my mind, especially the Delhi auto rickshaw guy incident, may be I know the answers too, but may be I am hoping them not to be true.

I really appreciate your observations, I firmly believe that it needs a tender heart to observe things that way. I loved the way you loved India..

HOLLY GOLIGHTLY,, I am in love with that girl.. what attitude!..
