There is no doubt that the ancient and abandoned buildings have a high tendency to inspire many of the myths and tale stories. There are many kinds of myths and also haunted stories based on the origin of the building, its owners, people visiting the place, and many others. This building ‘Lawang Sewu’ would also be one of the haunted buildings.

This building became a scene for the bloody Battle of Semarang, where many soldiers were tortured and killed. Since then, this place has served as a house for many vengeful spirits. During the Second World War, the Japanese would occupy the building and use the dungeons for interrogation. Then, the building served as the DKARI (Djawat Kereta Api of the Republic of Indonesia), and the very next year in 1946, it served as the headquarters of the Dutch army.

In the past, the Japanese people would torture and also hang people from the iron beams under the ceiling. It is said that this place is frequented by many ghosts, many of them grief-ridden, and are said to haunt anyone who stands underneath these beams. Hence, guides often tell the tourists to stick together in fear of one of them wandering too far or falling into a trap, laid down by the same ghosts. It is indeed such a dangerous experience for many people.
