Here I came from Varanasi where Hindu's are calmly burnt and their ashes brushed into the Ganges. With death comes an absence of requirement to leave a trace. The life led is the legacy. Then moments later I am in Kolkata. Shrines bigger than the average Indian abode for the living have been dedicated to 6 month old babies who... More

If you are in absolute love with tranquility then this is the place for you, while walking you can even listen to the crushing sound of the autumnal leaves... that is something cannot be expressed in words. one can be moved by its solitude & the remembrance from History.

Fascinating place to visit in a busy city. Full of history of 19th British presence. Booklet available for a small cost from the friendly old man at the entrance which helps locate the most interesting graves.

This is a unique, peacefull and nice British cemetery in the middle of the city. Once you're there, you forget for a moment where you are. Enjoy the nature, the silence and ruines. It's close to St-Paul's cathedral! It's a non-touristic must seen spot in Kolkata!

When I was told to go here I really wasn't expecting much, thinking it just another standard cemetery. But I thought this place was fantastic. A real throw back into history. I throughly enjoyed walking round this beautiful, grand, enchanting and haunting place. It really is special. But at the same time so sad to read all the tomb stones... More

Very unique. A tranquil spot in the middle of noisy, dusty Kolkata. Take the time to read about the cemetery, which has a fascinating backstory.

I do not know how many times I visited this place. A perfect solitude, perfect silence- which speaks a lot of words. Here you will see Henry Louis Vivian Derozio's cemetery which made this place famous. Most of these are very old, some of them are more than 150 years..I simply love this place.

A real treat to see the great graves of the great people residing over kolkata through ages. I wont mention the names, you better go there to find them, the thing mostly crossed over my mind is the peace and the historic touch in middle of a busy city.

This very old Cemetry is considerately cared for by a not for profit group. The eery walk will take you past monuments of families from the 1800s.
