Out of the many mysterious villages in India, this one village in Kerala has an extraordinary fact to its name. On average, 16 out of 1000 successful pregnancies result in twins. However, Kodinhi records 400 pairs of twins among a population of only 2000 families. Scientists have developed various theories about this mystery.

Many of the unsolved mysteries in India root in the villages. In 1825, the Paliwal Brahmins of Kuldhara and 83 nearby villages fled in the dark. They left behind nothing but barren lands, empty houses and an old temple. While leaving they cursed that no one would be able to inhabit this village ever again. Anyone who has ever tried to spend a night in this village has experienced paranormal activities.

Situated in the disputed India-China border region, Kongka La is one of the inaccessible regions. Since this is a no man’s land, there are beliefs that it is an operational base for UFOs. Many people have also reported seeing UFOs and both the Indian and Chinese governments are aware of it. Google Maps has also shown the absence of mysterious military facilities in the region.

Another one of the results of a bizarre phenomenon is the Lonar Crater Lake in Maharashtra’s Buldhana district. The lake is said to be a result of an extraterrestrial impact crater that later filled with rainwater and became a lake. The mystery of the lake is the fact that the water here is pink. It is because of the biomass of Haloarchaea microbes, which turns the surface of the water red or pink.
