Dutch Cemetry

Historical site very interesting to visit. However it is kept in a very neglected state with overgrown vegetation. Must visit during your trip to Surat.

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.
