Behind an unassuming looking gate near Fort Kochi beach is this unexpected attraction. Buried in the cemetery are 104 Dutch merchants and soldiers from centuries ago. It is a dilapidated looking place, and the cenotaphs and tombs made from granite and red laterite have not aged well. The gates are usually locked, but there are two ways to enter. Either you might spot the caretaker and be lucky enough to be allowed in, or you could arrange for a visit by asking at the St. Francis church.
- Permission is required from St. Francis Church authorities to visit this place.
- Entry is free.
- Fort Kochi Bus Terminal
- Kunnumpuram Bus Stop
- Drive, or take a rickshaw or a taxi.

I remember that there was access to this Cemetery during 10 years back but now visitors are not allowed to get inside. It is the burial site of Dutch who had colonised India during 15th century. The cemetery is located at South side of the Fort Kochi beach which is also known as Mahatma Gandhi beach. The burials are made up of red stone.
So sweet love.
Nothing here to see. The place is completely overrun by grass and weeds and the headstones are barely visible.Also, the place is locked up and completely shut off to visitors. Makes one wonder why this place is tagged as a tourist attraction.
Nice place to enjoy sea breeze and think about sea trade....
Nice place to visit ... especially in the morning.the view is just amazing
