This historic cemetery, built in 1767, is the final resting place of some great stalwarts of the past including Sir William Jones, Henry Derozio, Colin Mackenzie, amongst others is worth visiting, particularly in case you are interested in history since it was one of the earliest non-church cemeteries in the world, and the largest Christian cemetery outside Europe and America in the 19th century. Recently, a successful Bengali movie has brought this cemetery into public attention once again. I wished that the landscape of the cemetery and the historic tombs were better maintained.
