The place of Lawang Sewu have been a place of so much killing and brutal tortures. It is believed that during the deadly times of WW-II the Japanese soldiers used this ground as a killing spot, wherein, they used to torture and kill people in thousands. After these incidents, there were a continuous chain of unfortunate events that took place at this very basement.
This basement that is completely filled with dense darkness gives you a sense of fear and anxiety, the moment you step in. The ghostly sights of dutch women walking around and then suddenly disappearing, people walking with their heads off is enough to make anyone feel a shiver through their body.
