Ghost Pods of San Zhi

Abandoned Pods of San Zhi

I can’t remember where I originally saw this story, but the image above is from an abandoned ‘Pod City’ in San Zhi, Taiwan.

Apparently, this podular housing was meant as a luxury vacation spot. But, after numerous fatal accidents during construction, the project was abandoned. Locals say the area is now haunted by those who died in vain and because they are not remembered, they linger there unable to pass on.

Unfortunately, the project may never be restarted, or even torn down because destroying the homes of spirits and lost souls is a HUGE no-no in Asian culture. So, it may just sit there rusting away for a long, long time.

I think these look really cool, but honestly, I half expect to see the Dharma Initiative logo stenciled on the side.

There’s more info and pictures here. Higher resolution images here. And, you can view the site in Google Earth with this file.
