With a strong historical background Bangalore is one of the famous cities of the country. In a city like Bangalore, where thousands of people every year are reaching from different parts of country for getting jobs, there are some haunted place too. Vas Villa St. Marks Road is one of the most haunted places in India. People, who living there or walk passes from there, got a weird feeling and feels the presence of some negative waves.

A 75 year old lady named Dolce Vaz live in Vas Villa St. Marks Road, Bangalore was murdered by unidentified person in 2002. Dolce Vaz was living with her 80 years old sister Vera Vaz in Vas Villa St. Marks Road, Bangalore. Dolce Vaz and Vera Vaz was the daughter of E.A. Vaaz who was an advocate in Bombay High Court. By the time investigating officer did not found any clue and they are thinking that the person came there for steal something but Dolce Vaz captured and she trying to stop that person. Actually the incident was happened in midnight. Vera Vaz was sleeping, she heard her sister screaming. When she approaches there Vera Vaz found that her sister Dolce Vaz was seriously injured on neck, stomach and hands. She declared death when approaches to the hospital. Now the house is empty neither anyone claiming to buy the property nor anyone want to live there. It is said that now the house became the home of supernatural power.

This colonial house on St.Marks, home to sisters Dolce and Vera Vaz, was the site of a gruesome murder in 2002. 75 year old Dolce Vaz was killed by an unknown attacker and supposedly buried in the grounds . Her older sister Vera Vaz eventually moved away due to a property dispute. A car, a piano and most of the furniture was left behind. The house remained abandoned for many years after that. Soon, a number of bizarre stories cropped up – strange apparitions and sounds of the someone playing the piano at night.There was talk of witchcraft and devil worship fuelled by supposed sightings of inverted crosses and headless statues inside the house.
Amidst high rise buildings, swanky stores and restaurants, this abandoned house located in prime property on St Marks road is bound to grab your attention when you walk past.

In the shade of some lovely old trees, the house stands tired, broken, and falling apart – painting a rather sad picture. We were having breakfast at MTR just adjacent to the house when we sauntered in with our cameras. Though I’ve always wondered about this building, I’ve never actually bothered to find out more about the place.

This morning, while looking around, I remembered a story that a friend of mine told me about the house. That it was haunted and at night, people have heard piano music playing inside.

A web search tells me that the house was inhabited by two sisters. – Dulcie and Vera Vaz. Since this was prime property, it was constantly under pressure from land sharks. Around 2001, amidst all this, Dulcie Vaz was murdered, while Vera managed to flee and the case remains unsolved. After that, the house and property have been under litigation.

The broken down, dusty and dirty car – a Hillman Minx – in the driveway adds the required effect to the whole scene, which seems to be straight out of a scary movie. You wouldn’t want to be caught here alone at night! There’s a rag picker going around gathering stuff from the ground while we wander about. Not sure what they find here though. It’s smelly, dirty and seems to have become a dumping ground in more ways than one. The textured walls are crumbling, but behind the grime you can tell that it was beautiful once upon a time.

In front of the house in the same property, someone is now building a concrete narrow structure that is likely going to become another shopping or commercial complex. And maybe some day, this building too will be claimed. But until then, the house remains unclaimed… and one can well imagine why.
