The Diplomat Hotel on Dominican Hill, Baguio City, Philippines is famous for being haunted by headless apparitions amongst other things. There were some visitors of the hotel claiming to saw headless figures carrying a platter with their severed damaged head on it, walking along the corridors wailing for justices. The abandoned hotel was the heaven for the paranormal and ghost hunters.
The building was once the seminary Collegio Del Santissimo. The seminary was closed in 1917 due to poor enrolment figures. When during WWII, the seminary was used as a refugee camp. The Japanese run over the seminary and decapitated almost every clergy in the building. These murders were rumored to take place at the ground and second floor of the building. Many other refugees were also killed by the bombing of the seminary during the Japanese invasion.
It is rumored that the Japanese drowned childrens in this fountain.
