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.

  • The holy lanes between those graves are so much full of life that you will surely long for to walk again through them. The epitaphs, mausoleums are elements that marks the remains of an age left long behind and so the people. It also eloquently reminds us that we are so much alive in our blood and flesh and we must make it worthwhile to the fullest before going down that place where they now reside. It's a 'heavenly' place. If you want to enjoy solitude, just go alone or else take the dearest one with you and don't forget to mop-in every drop of truth, beauty and tranquility there.

  • One of the Haunted places in Kolkata which comes under top 10 Haunted places in Kolkata... Do Visit alone if you want to experience the smell of "Real Haunting"!

  • Best place for peace. A historical place for burying. It is a graveyard! Don't be afraid to explore the place, its mesmersing and beautifully ruined. The cemetery has lots of greenery all round, quiet empty spaces to sit and have a chat, good for photography too. A must visit place for explorers.
