Why to visit South Park Street Cemetery
This cemetery was one of the biggest non-church Christian cemeteries outside of Europe and America, and it was situated in Kolkata's Park Street neighbourhood, which is popular for its bars and eateries. It is now a heritage property and no longer in use.
The almost 1900 burials are an eclectic mix of architectural styles, including Indo-Saracenic, classical antiquity, and European gothic, all mixed up in a tangle of obelisks, cairns, urns, and sarcophagi.
The lush tropical environment keeps encroaching on the crumbling stones even though South Park Street Cemetery is constantly being maintained and updated.
Many of the grounds are covered in green mosses and ancient ferns, creating an eerie atmosphere for tourists searching for some history in their boneyards.
People come in droves to this location to take in its beauty and read the monuments to the dead. Photographers may capture it in a wonderful way. The cemetery is thought to be haunted even though it has historical significance and is frequently visited by numerous people.
