In 1730, Baghdadi Jew Joseph Semah arrived in Surat from Baghdad (Iraq) and founded the Surat synagogue and cemetery. The synagogue is now demolished but the cemetery can still be found on the Katargam-Amroli main road.only thing is disappointing why government is not taking such a care of all heritage,......?

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.

Visited both Dutch and English cemeteries as they are within walking distance of each other, there is not much as far as historical building in Surat but it well worth visiting theses cemetery's some of it dates to 1600s and in a remarkable condition. 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.
