The Dutch tombs are of various sizes and shapes, but the one that excels all the rest in magnificence is the... More

Visited this place in October. It is located in Katargam area of Surat. This place is not maintained by the Govt and is in worst condition. Immediate maintenance is required. There are some big and small graves. It is a historical place and should be maintained properly.

The Dutch were among the earlier Europeans who came to Surat as it was a major port. Maintenance is a major issue at this cemetery.

Grave in the Dutch Cemetery is not well matained by Surat Municipal Corporation.Some of the small graves are broken.Main big graves are ok.They also need some maintenance.Overall i loved the architect of main big graves.People do urinary on the wall side of Dutch Cemetery.That should be stopped.

It is a historic place! needs more and proper promotion and maintenence! The dutch came to India first among all the europeans via surat! established surat as their base! The cemetry is the proof of their establishment in surat! Needs more highlighting and its fair share of place in the history of India!

Even after using GPS and asking locals we took some time to locate this place, though it is quite large. The area outside the compound is used as public lavatory. The main gate is closed. You have to enter through a side gate which is a small bylane. The compound wall is quite high. Even if you get murdered inside,... More

The Dutch Cemetery is located in the Katargam area of Surat. The Dutch Cemetery needs attention of the authority for developing it as tourist place. The Cemetery has very nice tombs and it needs maintenance and repairs. The monument is lesser known to public. The cleanliness is nice. It is recommended to visit once.

The place is very hard to find that I had a hard time to make the auto-driver take me there! The main gate will be closed and you have to go around the cemetery in order to get in. The toms and the inscriptions made on them shows the involvement of the Dutch towards art and architecture. The place is... More

Was nice to note how the early settlers took care of their lost ones. Now the site is badly kept..not clean and the approach is indeed difficult. Could be improved...
