Totally amazing that a cemetery can look like this! Read Satyajit Ray's Feluda story based in the Park Street Cemetery - will only make your visit more exciting.

It is unimaginable that there can be such a peaceful, calm and quiet area in the heart of busy kolkata with so much of greenery. The moment one enters the cemetery, one is at once taken to a bygone era of the eighteenth century, with numerous graves of famous englishmen and women, scattered amidst huge trees and chirping of birds....

Amazing memorials that indicate how often life in the late 18th century for British colonials (mostly East India Company, Royal Navy, British Army and administrators of a burgeoning empire) was short.

Many old (250 yrs+) graves which have been restored. Quiet and calm place. What was most interesting was the sheer number of couples using the cemetery as a private garden. Well, keep the camera clicking ;)

Great well kept cemetery in the middle of Kolkatta. Gothic art and wide avenues, a real treasure trove of British Raj India. Guide book is ₹100. They let us in late and gave a guided tour so a donation of ₹100 was warranted. Reminded me of Brompton Cemetery in London. Fabulous place if you like art, gothic architecture, cemeteries and...

Well worth a look, I wasn't expecting much but I found the step back in time very interesting. The staff who looked after the cemetery very very friendly. If your not into history its nice to get away from the hussle and bussle.
