4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
Wander through centuries of British colonial history at South Park Street Cemetery. The cemetery, built in 1767 and used through to 1830, served as a burial ground for the pioneers of the East India Company, who succumbed to unfamiliar tropical diseases. Wander along pathways and admire the crumbling columns and moss-covered mausoleums, built in gothic and Indo-Saracenic styles. Enjoy the peace and quiet at this now-recognised heritage site, and keep your eyes peeled for the oldest grave, which belongs to Mrs. S. Pearson (1768).

  • This place isolates you from all the cacophony of Kolkata. One can enjoy the bliss of solitude in this place. The place does need more maintenance. But well maintained than many other heritages in Kolkata. This is another side of Kolkata. Visit to relive the India under British rule.
  • Great place with an amazing historical attachment. Good if you want some quiet
