Sanzhi UFO houses
San Zhi, Taiwan
These UFO shaped houses were first built in 1978. They were originally supposed to be vacation houses for the U.S military officers coming from East Asia. These houses were labeled as being cursed because of the man car crashes and suicides that happened during construction. Workers thought that the accidents and suicides were caused by the dismantling of the Chinese Dragon, which is very important in East Asian culture, by the road workers in order to build wider roads. That’s why they say the houses are cursed. Unfortunately, these unique houses were abandoned in 1980 and left to rot because of the curse and also because of investment losses. Even though the houses were never finished, they still attracted tourists because of how uniquely shaped they are. The houses are so unique that they gained attention by MTV who then used the location for a film. The houses stood standing alone for 28 years before a decision to tear down the houses was made. They were torn down on December 29th 2008 and the job was completely finished by 2010. Now the land is being used to construct a seaside resort and water park. Let’s hope that the curse no longer remains.
