They are forbidden places that are not for public viewing. Let’s take a look at 9 of the world’s most forbidden places.

1. Ise Grand Shrine, Japan

Ise Grand is known to be the most sacred Shinto shrine in Japan. Its history dates back to the 3rd century. As it is the spiritual home for the Japanese people and their indigenous faith Shinto, every year, it welcomes many tourists and pilgrims.

Ise Grand Shrine is located in Ise City, Mie Prefecture. It consists of more than 125 shrines. The grand place of worship is placed in the center of the main shrines Geku (outer shrine) and Naiku (inner shrine).

The main buildings are at the foot of densely wooded hills, making it one of Japan’s most beautiful architectural sites.

But not everyone can come inside the most sacred block. There are only some parts of the main shrine buildings that are visible. Only the members of the imperial family as well as a few selected shrines priests can enter the inner sanctum. The head priest or priestess must be someone from the imperial family.

You are forbidden from taking photos of the main shrine buildings.

2. Doomsday Vault, Norway

The Doomsday Vault is essentially a seed bank that is in the middle of Norway’s Arctic Svalbard archipelago. Inside the protected vault, you can find a diversity of plant seeds. The Doomsday Vault is built to prepare for a worldwide emergency or an apocalypse. Big boxes of seeds are transported to the vault from different places of the world. It is like a huge safety deposit box protecting agricultural biodiversity.

The vault is only open on certain days for special guests. It was opened in 2008. It is designed and constructed to last around 200 years. It can easily withstand earthquakes and explosions. The location of the vault is at the side of a mountain and well above sea level.

3. North Sentinel Island, India

North Sentinel Island is in the Andaman. It is considered to be one of the most forbidden places. The Sentinelese, the indigenous population of the island, rejects all contact from the outside world. They are one of the few people untouched by civilization.

To safeguard their isolation, they often become violent. Under the Indian Government’s protection, they have lived here for more than 50,000. In 2004, when researchers tried to assess the Indian Ocean tsunami’s damage, their helicopters got attacked by the tribe for coming near to the island. Luckily, no one was hurt.

4. Lascaux Caves, France

This is one of the world’s most important archaeological sites. It is said that you can find pre-historic paintings dating back to at least 17,300 years ago inside the cave.

There are animals like cattle, bison, stags, and many more in these paintings. However, after 1963, the common public can no longer visit the cave since they might ruin the artwork, according to archaeologists.

Werner Herzog, an independent German director, and filmmaker received special permission to enter the cave to shoot his 2010 documentary called Cave of Forgotten Dreams. The crew was only allowed to film for 6 days with 4 hours each day.

5. Bhangarh Fort, India

The once majestic fort used to be the home of a splendid kingdom. But now, it is said to be India’s most haunted fort.

In 1573, the ruler Amber Kachwaha built the fort for his youngest son. Its population gradually decreased until in 1783, the villagers were forced to flee following a strong famine. Local legends say that because of a curse that the kingdom fell into ruin.

In fact, the Bhangarh Fort is India’s one and only “legally recognized” haunted destination. Visitors will need a government permit to visit the fort before dawn or after sundown.

6. Tomb of Qin Shi Huang, China

The tomb of the First Emperor of China and the ruler of the Qin Dynasty is one of the world’s most inaccessible places. The builders designed a complex network of caverns that were filled with things for the emperor in his afterlife.

The small island is in between Lido and Venice. For many reasons, it is regarded as an unlucky place. Poveglia was once a plague quarantine station with over 160,000 infected patients who were spending their last days there.

Fort Knox is in Kentucky, the USA. It reserves half of the country’s gold. Fort Know is frequently referred to be the world’s most heavily guarded place.

However, each staff only knows one of them.
