SK Danau Perdana, Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur is a pristine city tainted by a dangerous eyesore that was once a place of learning. The former Danua Perdana School is today closed off, surrounded by a protective fence displaying warnings to those who dare enter. The structural integrity of this abandoned former school is questionable, yet it is the ghostly legends that surround the building which really strike fear into the hearts of many.
The SK Danau Perdana was closed down in 2005 after issues regarding the safety of the building arose. Ever since the school has remained abandoned with its future uncertain. Despite long existing plans to demolish the site and satisfy locals who view the education complex as an ugly stain within the community, the ruin has been left intact. Though the ruin remains, not everyone is upset at its existence. The abandoned school has become a magnet for urban explorers and paranormal investigators alike ever since its closure.
Haunted Legends of the abandoned Danau Perdana School
Winding corridors, towering buildings and empty classrooms create a surreal and anxiety-provoking environment for those brave enough to enter this abandoned school. The legends that the buildings are haunted only adds to the terror that the Danau Perdana School evokes.
The main ghost story that has plagued the school relates to a specific type of spirit known as a Pontianak. This is a spirit from Malay culture that relates to a woman who died during pregnancy or during birth. These ghosts return confused, angry and often display vampire-like tendencies. Those who believe in this type of haunting perceive the Pontianak to be one of the more fearsome entities out there.
The spirit that is said to haunt the school is believed to be a woman who once worked at the establishment as a cleaner. She is thought to have died during her pregnancy. Then, returned to the school to terrorize those who dare enter.
Visiting Kuala Lumpur’s Abandoned School
The SK Danau Perdana School is an exhilarating place to explore. It is currently closed from the public, being fenced off due to unsafe structures. When I visited there was a large door in the fence that had been left wedged open. The future of how long this building will stick around for remains unclear.
