Attractions Cemetery, Darjeeling, and Tourist Point
If you will ask any traveler across the world than they would rather deny the location of cemetery because it is never a place to visit but in Darjeeling there is a cemetery that spreads an essence of history lived by British Government. However, if one is interested in the history of the place and love everything heritage, he/she will surely want to visit this old memorial park, which has been accorded the status of ‘National Importance’ by the Kolkata Chapter of Archeological Survey of India. Located on the lower strata of the town, this cemetery is the resting place of those who made Darjeeling what it is today. Although we have to admit that the cemetery could have been better maintained, what is left is worth a visit. In most cases, the inscriptions have become hazy, while some of the gravestones have actually broken down and the protective railings around them are missing. Yet, when we look around to see centuries old gravestones lying in the backdrop of lush green tea estates and the mighty Kanchenjunga, we are transformed to another world, another era. Whoever chose this site as the final resting place of the departed chose it well. Located on Lebong Cart road, the cemetery is more or less 1.5 Km from the centre of the town. It overlooks the lush green tea estates below and from the upper section, one can also have an overview of part of the Darjeeling town. The Kanchenjunga too is clearly visible on a clear day.
