Fairly well-maintained because it is still in use - no credit to the authorities. Amble through the cemetery to see the tombs of the who's who of Bengali literature

The place was a calm visit during our short tour with friends. There is no entry fee, though you will need to register in the entry book. Allows to stay for 1 hour from entry time. P.S. - Cameras strictly not allowed..
