Place where one feels humbled at reflective at the sight of the tombs and epitaphs of the past...there are many names engraved in stone and marble by their loved ones who are now probably no more too....calm and serene atmosphere...lots of trees and no miscreants...More

There is a place at the backside where you can get a glimpse of the graves of the Martyrs from the British era. It's a nice place to just roam and experience the peaceful nature.

No. It's closed on Sundays. I don't think they have a register but almost all the graves have their names inscribed . It is open Monday to Friday 10 am - 4 30 Pm.
