House of Harm

That is what we called this building before we knew that it was named Mahencha Apartments. Nowadays, we are inclined to call it “the one that started it all”. It was something we had stumbled upon and thought it would be fun to take a few pictures of, and we were on the road to urban exploring.  It got its original moniker from a cheap paperback which lay in the courtyard; it was some horror/suspense novel whose name we forget, but it was subtitled House of Harm, which we though fit the surroundings perfectly. When we finally gained access to the school across the street, I was thrilled to see the view of Mahencha the rooftop offered.

    Love the building, from this distance you can hardly tell how far gone it is.

    No way to get in? I’d love to see more. An abandoned piano or organ perhaps 🙂 I’m a artsy musician, bear with me. I want to go inside that place so badly!!!

      Access to that building is easy, but there’s not much to look at inside. As for pianos, check the upcoming post 🙂
