A piece of the British Raj

Interesting cemetery which was opened only for 23 years but is kept in good shape with many tombs under restoration. Just walk around and enjoy the peace and quiet of the place.

Serene, Placid And The Island Od DEATH. Sorry, If Your Relative Or Friend Died! It'll Be The Best Place To Bury Them. Hopefully They Wont Get Bored Because They'll Have Some Great Colonial Company And Loads Of Visiters!

South Park Cemetery is a hidden gem when you think of Calcutta's history. Architecturally, the cemetery is a bizarre mix of obelisks, sarcophagi and pedestal tombs the like of which are hardly to be found in most cemeteries in Europe. It also has a tomb shaped liked a temple and decorated with Hindu tantric figures. This is the tomb of... More

Situated at the center of the city, it is a very calm and quite place. A must visit for all the people who wants to know the flavour of the city.

My husband and I thought this was a really cool spot. Big monuments for British officers and, I assume, wealthy Brits who passed on. It is beautifully treed. A quiet oasis in busy (crazy) Kolkata! We felt very safe going in there with our two guides on our motorcycle tour with Tour de Sundarbans. I believe there was a very... More

Lots of beautiful old graves, very historic. Nice location. Lots of local trees and flowers. You get a good sense of the history of Calcutta and the old British colonization, plus see how the wealthy had some elaborate graves.

Any bengali who has read Satyajit Ray's Feluda, would have once wished once that he/she steps into this place. Its a place where you can go on a lazy aftenoon with a book or your best mate and just let yourself be charmed by the eeriness of the rising smoke of the dry leaves being burnt or just knowing that...

Very tranquil respite from the chaos of the city. Anyone with an interest in the British occupation of India will find this place very stimulating. Notable is the sheer size and opulence of the gravestones, and also the young age at which most of their occupants died, often as a result of tropical diseases. All in all, a surreal and... More
