The uniqueness of these cemeteries is the extra large size tomb stones as compared to ones found for English cemetery. Most of the structures have been claimed to be nicely preserved but one can witness the deterioration going on . The domes like structures resemble more or less like Muslim Tombs unlike usual Christian cemeteries

For historic lover this is one of the best place to go for in Surat. It has Awesome historic buildings which crave you to know about its history. The Dutch tombs are of various sizes and shapes, but the one that excels all the rest in magnificence is the grandiose mausoleum of Baron Adrian Van Reede

The place was missed managed, broken and tampered walls. disappointing. But the place has its own history. 30 mins are good enough to see and explore, until you are searching any one's name. its is located in the congested town, no parking space so avoid self driving.

Rarely combination of Religious. Earlier Dutchman's Cemetery, the size & area of Cemetery depends on post of those Soldiers and Officers.

The old man in the English cemetery keeps it all very tidy and for a few... More

Historical site very interesting to visit. However it is kept in a very neglected state with overgrown vegetation. Must visit during your trip to Surat.
