    Based on records of buildings with Otis brand elevators,
    as many as 85 percent of the high rises in the world don't
    have a 13th floor, says Dilip Rangnekar, spokesman for the
    Farmington, CT-based elevator maker.

    Some buildings purposely numbered the 13th floor as the 14th to avoid distressing people who has TRISKAIDEKAPHOBIA. The fear of number 13. A lot of people considered 13 as an unlucky number due to many accidents involving the number. In Formula 1, for instance, the no. 13 was permanently removed after two drivers were killed in crashes. There were also a lot of tragedies recorded on Friday the 13th. The death of the Knights Templar being one which occurred on Friday, 13th of October. 13 being a bad number can also be traced even during Jesus' time. Judas, the disciple who betrayed Jesus was the 13th to sit at the table of the Last Supper.

    What do you mean the 'Death' of Knights Templar on being the 13th of October? Is it really?

    Philip, King of France, simultaneously ordered the arrest on what may have been all the Knights Templar in France on Oct. 13, 1307. Commomly knowan as "the unlucky Friday the 13th".

    My office building has 13th floor. I am on 16th. 17th is the rooftop engineers go there for heating/ventilation works, whatever. But that's interesting to note that there is not a 13th floor on some buildings. Never thought of it.
