The tombs are gorgeous and the epitaphs extremely moving, especially when we see that many very young people died one after the other in a family. But the marble on the tombs seem to have been vandalized, and it is such a pity. This place is very much worth a visit.

Located very centrally the cemetery is a valuable part of Kolkata's history. It feels like you have reached the British age of India. Silent and peaceful it is. The graves of many famous people like Sir William Jones and Derozio are present here.

This was a wonderful escape from the chaos that is Kolkata. Its right at the corner of Park street and A.J.C Bose road. Not many people go there so most likely you will have the place to yourself. It was the most beautiful graveyard I have ever been to, I have traveled to Kolkata twice and made a point to visit it on my second trip.

Fascinating inscriptions and huge obilisks as memorials to the early westeners in Kolkatas history. Well worth getting the guide book which gives a futher insight into the cemetry.
