2. Levitating Stone – Shivapur

Shivapur is a small town located near Pune; this little town is home to a levitating stone which is believed to be lifted up in the air by Sufi Saint Qamar Ali’s spirit. One interesting fact about his levitating stone is that 11 people together touch their fingers to the stone and scream out loud the name – “Qamar Ali Darvesh”; the stone would fly up in the air. Weighing around 200 kilogram this huge levitating stone is full of mysterious stories. However the claim is not yet scientifically proven. I would leave on you to decide if the legend of this levitating stone is freaky or fantastic.
