Usually I'm not very fond of cemeteries but you can't miss this- I'm so glad I didn't! This is in the middle of this huge, loud city and its not even big but it's completely still in there and you can enjoy as much time as you want, usually all alone, walking and exploring the graves, mausoleums and the likes......

I made my first visit there after seeing a movie named "Gorosthane Sabhdhan" as much as I can remember. It is a very old cemetery.

Opened in 1767, the cemetery was in use until about 1830 and is now a heritage site, protected by the Archaeological Survey of India. Most tombs you see here are of those who served under the East India Company. If you are interested in history, you ought to visit this place. Just walk around the cemetery and enjoy the peace...

This cemetery houses some leendary names but more than that, visit it to get some calmness and peace. It is unbelievably peaceful after entering from Park street area. Spend some time of quietness and solitude

This cemetery is located on the posh Park Street area and is very popular with foreign tourists. Most of the graves are around 200+ years old.

I visited this place an year back. It is interesting to see graves from pre-independence era. Even from the inscriptions and engravings, hints of life of bygone era can be discerned. Each grave tells a story.

The cemetery dates back to the East India Company's arrival in India and tombs of those who served under it. Given the space crunch cities have been grappling with, this cemetery is certainly one of its kind

If you are interested in history, you cannot miss this place. It's free but check the hours as it closes early. There is practically no one there but once you get in, it's history at every turn. Find the grave of Hindoo Stuart (straight from the front entrance all the way to the back and then right for a few... More

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.
