The tale of the “Dead Bodies Tunnel”
There are so many places in the world, which are so mysterious where humans travel. One such place is also in Paris. Yes, the city of fashion has such building in Paris, where the skulls and bones of more than six million people are kept. This very scary place is known as Catacombs of Paris. There is a cellar at a depth of 20 meters from the ground, in which the skulls of millions of dead are deposited.
The population in Paris began to increase rapidly in the 17th century, with deaths also increasing. Due to lack of cemeteries, many corpses started rotting. There was a fear of spreading diseases due to deteriorating corpses. French officers thought of a way on this. All the corpses were removed from the old Kabristan. They were transported to the place where the cellar was ready, and then those half-dead bodies were buried together in the basement.
The campaign to carry corpses and transport them to a certain place lasted from 1780 to 1814. On one side, millions of corpses were put in the basement, while many corpses were kept in the basement along with the arched tombs. It is believed that this tunnel cellar is spread over a radius of about 320 kilometers. No one knows what is in a large part of it.
Many local swimmers in Paris, trying to get into the world of secrets, also try to swim from their pool to the tunnel. This crypt of tombs may be scary, but people come from far and wide to see it. The basement was first opened to the public in 2008. Since then, more than four crore people have come here.
There are strange incidents happened in the tunnel basement. In 2004, the police arrived for some training in an empty section of the tunnel. After moving within a radius of kilometers, the policemen found a cinema hall, a restaurant and bar inside. There were also phones and power lines here. A secret camera was watching the policemen. When an attempt was made to investigate the surrounding area, he found a note – do not try to find us. The policemen had to leave immediately.
A new trend was seen in Paris Some people interested in exploring this deadly tunnels go inside the Catacombs of Paris. Spend time there and come out. They stay away from the pile of corpses and prepare a map before leaving so that they are not lost among the dead. However, there are very few people in Paris who have information about reaching down and returning from there. These people are called cataphiles and live in very small communities. They do not include outsiders in their group and in adventure.
