Haunted Abandoned Mansion, Taichung, Taiwan


Reportedly the former home of a Chinese poet with the surname Chen, the mansion was originally built circa 1930. Locals report ghost sights and of hearing strange haunting noises on a regular basis.

The building is predominantly built in the Baroque style, which would have signified in Japanese colonial Taiwan a move towards Western culture.

The layout of the mansion’s exterior — a main building, or hall, with wings on either side of the courtyard — was traditionally designed, with a view to optimising the Feng Shui of the building.
