Cursed Hotel: The world's tallest hotel is deserted, not a single guest can stay

Ryugyong Hotel, the 
largest hotel in North Korea has 3000 rooms but no one 
stays here. There are many secrets behind it. People have started calling this building, which has been vacant for a long time, haunted. It was built by Kim Jong Un's father, Kim Jong Il. He is said to have built it for his mother, Com Jong Suk, who loved the high-rise building.

Construction of the hotel began in 1987. Kim Jong Il said it would be the largest and coolest hotel in the world. The 1000 feet high and 105 storey hotel has 5 revolving hotels. The construction of this hotel has been facing many problems from the very beginning. Due to technical problems, construction materials ran out and problems like air became a stumbling block in this construction.

Work was stalled in the 90s

The biggest problem came in the 1990s when North Korea experienced a recession. By then the building was ready from the outside but completely empty from the inside. This stately building remained in this condition for 16 years. Construction resumed in 2008 at a cost of 180 million. After a few years, the hotel was ready. There was a discussion among the people as to when this would be open for tourists but it did not happen.

It was the tallest hotel in the world until the North Korean administration said nothing about it. The building was said to be in poor condition as work was stopped several times so that construction materials were not used properly. A report found that no construction had taken place on many floors inside the 105-storey building. This was revealed in a photo taken inside the hotel taken by a Beijing employee in 2012.

People believe cursed

The hotel hosted a live show in 2018, showing the history of North Korea. There was speculation then that the hotel would open but the building is still deserted. People have started calling it a curse because it has been closed for a long time. According to an American magazine, this has been called the worst building of mankind. Ryugyong, the tallest hotel, is no longer at the top of the list. In 2018, Dubai's Gevora Hotel topped the Guinness Book of World Records at 1168 feet.
