Cemeteries hold so many stories and this one is exceptional. Remarkable for the style of tombs, sarcophagi etc, gorgeous filtered light, ancient trees. A soulful place with so much history and a sanctuary of peace in such a busy city.

if you are tired of the noise, dirt and crowds - you should come here. It's very quiet, interesting and beautiful spot. watching all the tombstones and the crypts you can make your own opinion about the history of the city and of the East India company

It's a heritage site (Archeological Surrey of India) on Park Street (Mother Teresa Sarani) and A. J. C. Bose Road crossing. It is considered one of the earliest non church cemeteries in the world and the largest Christian cemetery outside Europe and America in 19th century.

This is a great serene place to take a walk and enjoy the architecture of the tombs and see how nature and plant life have taken life and grown around the cemetery - beautiful flowers intermixed among graves.

Good Place... Quite shady & damp. All old Graveyards, many are broken with tree roots.. Really a nostalgic one.!! Can get to see many graves & tombs of many Old birtish people who ruled in the 18th Century too. Its also a place for romance. No Entry fees. Park authorities remind you to visit only for 50 minutes. But you... More

a hidden sanctuary right at the heart of Park Street. It will take around an hour to walk around the entire graveyard. You can spend time exploring the graves, the lives of all the gone and departed in the epitaph.

A lush green oasis in the busy Mullick Bazar Area on the Park Street. The moment you cross the gate you are transported to another era. It was one of the earliest non-church cemeteries in the world, and probably the largest Christian cemetery outside Europe and America in the 19th century. Opened in 1767, the cemetery was in use until... More

This was a very interesting cemetery in terms of the tombs and tombstones. Sadly some of the inscriptions have been eroded with the weather and lack of maintenance but a restoration and clean-up of the graves seemed to be under way which should make the place more interesting. There are booklets about the history of the place and some of... More

Visit this oasis of silence in the middle of Kolkata. The impressive graves are from the 18th century colonial era. It feels like stepping back in time...
