Little Adventures: Park Street Cemetery

Everyone kept telling me that I had to go to Park Street Cemetery. I thought nothing of it and figured that I would go when it was the most convenient for me. It is located in a very central part of the city on one of Kolkata’s most exciting streets so I find myself there quite often. This past weekend was finally a convenient time. After visiting the cemetery and experiencing it, I highly recommend the spot to anyone that comes to visit Kolkata.

Visiting the Park Street Cemetery was like stepping on to a giant board game. The tombs are all mausoleum size, probably 8-10 feet tall. The place is eerily quiet in a jungly secret garden sort of way. Its more enchanting than scary. I am not usually one to rank graveyards but, this is definitely my new favorite (Second place goes to Pére Lachaise).
