I was given a tour of this cemetery by the guide I hired from the university to show me the architectural sights of Calcutta. It is elegiac and evocative and a must see in my favorite Indian city.

Plenty of photo opportunities in this quiet space that remembers the people who were able to have monuments set up that keep their names in the story of Calcutta. Be careful on the moss covered pathways

One of the most serene place in town. There are tombs of the British Officials & their family members. People go there for photo shoots, to spend some peaceful time as there are cemented seats to sit.

With the graves of some of the most acknowledged Englishmen ruling the city during British rule, you can get awestruck by the structures beautifully preserved. Walk the pure calmness of the place as it feels a complete solitary place cut off from the outside world.

This is a humbling experience as you will be among numerous graves. Some graves are more than a century old and have ornate designs on the stones. Architecture is wonderful.

Place where one feels humbled at reflective at the sight of the tombs and epitaphs of the past...there are many names engraved in stone and marble by their loved ones who are now probably no more too....calm and serene atmosphere...lots of trees and no miscreants...More
