Enjoy the silence

This is one of the oldest cemetery in Kolkata. It is very silent and quite place. You could feel the old Kolkata.

It's worth a short visit to see the old style graves and to read of the short personal histories on the epitaphs. I'm glad it is being cared for.

A glimpse of the olden days of Calcutta. A must-see. Too many of those buried here died much too young, illustrating the difficult conditions of those days. Unfortunately no photography allowed.

A quiet and tranquil place crammed with tombs from tiny babies ( many) to soldiers, their wives and others working for the crown in Calcutta.

Wow what a step back in time! Totally agree with other reviews in that this cemetery gives a real incite to Colonial life. It was also a great place to have a little breather from the buzz and horns of Kolkata.

The South Park Street Cemetry was built in 1767 and hence it is one of the oldest Cemetry. It is situated in Mother Teresa Sarani in Park Street and also it is known as the Haunted Place in Kolkata the reason for which is still unknown..

What could I possibility expect from a cementery. You can visit this place if you want. It will be added to one of your visited places if you want.
