Dutch Cemetery Ahmedabad

We all know about Britishers but not about the Dutch. Well, they didn’t rule us but had trading relations with us for cotton, yarn and indigo. We found a Dutch cemetery here in Ahmedabad where they all were buried. This cemetery was built in 1700AD. Surprisingly, it is also a heritage site but not many know about it. The cemetery looks very elegant and we must say we were shocked to see such a gem in heart of the city at Kankaria.

Most of us have experienced the massive earthquake in 2001. Not only lives were lost , big buildings were demolished too. The  Dutch cemetery’s tombs were also badly ruined. But thanks to AMC and the Archaeological Department this heritage was restored to its past glory again.
