South Park Street Cemetery - Review
The Park Street Cemetery was one of the earliest non-church cemeteries in the world, and probably the largest Christian cemetery outside Europe and America in the 19th century. Opened in 1767 on what was previously a marshy area, the cemetery was in use until about 1830 and is now a heritage site, protected by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). A quaint place to sit and chat, the cemetery offers nature and peace at its quietest. You can stroll around and see tombs dating hundreds of years back and wonder how the lives of these people must have been.

South Park Street Cemetery, Kolkata Reviews
It's really a nice place. As I don't like crowded places, I always spend some alone time in this cemetery. Good environment. Peaceful place.
One of the most beautiful places of Kolkata, u must visit here once to experience peace with a bit of fear. There are rumors that the place is haunted, as any other cemetery are. But the thrilling experience you gather here is awesome. The entry was free till last year, but it is 20/-head as now
Every visit to this place is very nostalgic... And sometimes it even gives me goosebumps. Really a silent place and spending a winter evening at here can be a nice decision.
You want to checkout the dead; come to this place. No place to romanticise? You gotta come here. Or if you want to read tombstones and try to find the oldest decipherable one, while seeking peace for oneself like me. You ought to come here. And one wouldn't mind 20 bucks for the sake of an environment that'd otherwise be too crowded if free.
Very beautiful, peaceful place for a quick visit. Tombs of many famous persons are here. There are rumors that this is one of the haunted place. Coludy or rainy season is ideal to visit here, but you have to take steps carefully as it's a little bit slippery. It closes at 5pm. Entry fee is Rs 20/-.
