Locals say that bizarre sounds can be heard from the mansion at night.
3. Three Kings Church
Two stories can be heard behind this church in Casualim village. One says that the church has derived its name from three scholar kings who had visited Lord Jesus during his birth. The other claims that the area was formerly ruled by three Portuguese monarchs. One of them poisoned the other two kings out of a desire for dominance. However, the locals eventually learned of his misdeed, and the third king also killed himself by ingesting poison. According to some sources, the kings were interred beneath the church. It is believed that the ghosts of these kings still haunt the chapel,
4. Jakni Bandh
A harrowing school bus accident on this bridge had killed all the kids inside this bus. It is reported that wails of children are heard at the place at night. The bridge lies between Navelim and Drampur.
5. The Rodrigues Home
It is said that in this Verna mansion, windows and doors open and close all by themselves. People around have reported seeing fluctuating lights and things moving on their own. It is also said that objects even disappear from the place at night. The Rodrigues family still reside here.
