The English Cemetery in Surat is like finding a gem in bed of pebbles. Located in a fairly crowded, nondescript area with narrow streets and small shops, there are no signs that lead up to it and certainly no guided tours that will take you there. Indeed very few locals even know about it. Once you reach Katargam Darwaja, look slightly upwards towards the north (right) and you can see something that looks very much like the replica of the Queen (of England)'s crown sticking up above a wall. A huge and elaborate cement structure that looks very unusual in its surrounding. Aiming for that structure you can locate the gate of the cemetery and once you're in, Bharatbhai, the old and devoted caretaker will show you around. He is fantastic. Be sure to leave him a little tip of Rs. 100, as his government salary, of course, is very low.
