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

A cemetery built more than 200 years back, it houses several eminent personalities including Henry Vivian Derozio.Consistently rated as one of the most haunted places in Kolkata, this place still has the potential to send a chill down one's spine if he or she visits after sunset.

Poorly maintained place - unfortunately. Lots of graves of young people, many children. The place is quite overgrown and only the occasional grave has been restored. Quite difficult to park your car in this area so best take a taxi if you go.

I like visiting cemeteries and burial / cremation grounds primarily because I feel that life's immortal aspects can be realized during the time spent there. We fight for almost everything when we are alive, but what happens when we are not? The material concept of mine, me, us and ours are all immaterial when we are not breathing, right? The... More

A treasure. A condensed history of the British Raj. Beautiful, poignant and fascinating. It leaves you wondering about all society characters, soldiers and administrators who died, often at very young ages.

The place was good but it's very poorly maintained. The place holds lot of history and will also show lot of old items. With the current state of the place, you can stay max 20 min and then you will think of getting out quickly and go to other places.
