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.

Dutch Cemetery, Kochi Reviews - Write a Review
The 282-year-old Dutch Cemetery in Fort Kochi is the oldest European cemetery in India. Old cemetery for the Dutch settlers and colonists from the 17th to 18th century. Interesting and quiet site for exploring the Fort Cochin history. Consecrated in 1724, the cemetery has 104 tombs of Europeans, mostly Dutch, who colonised Kerala. Now belongs to CSI Church.
An interesting place with abundant history. But not open to the public.
Good hoping place needs some more attention from municipality to make it more attractive..
Always locked. And not well maintained.
Not so great place as name suggests. There you will see 5-6 structures which are created by using garbage. Ya you can get some nice pics.. View - 3/5 Cleanliness - 4/5
