Dutch Gardens Overview

Ranked 7 of 20 sightseeing in Surat

The Dutch Garden or the Dutch cemetery is a popular attraction of Surat, which is located near Kataragam Gate, at a distance of about 4 km from the city. The Dutch Cemetery is known for its ancient mausoleums, built in the memory of Dutch and British officials who settled in Surat for their business ventures.  

Dutch Garden of Surat encloses well landscaped gardens of old English and Dutch cemeteries which are distinguished by their architectural features. The tombs of Christopher Oxenden and George Oxenden, who became the governing body of an English company in Surat, are the most notable ones in the English cemetery.

The mausoleums of the Dutch cemeteries are marked with massive Domes, beautiful pillars and huge galleries. Beneath the mausoleums, there are burial chambers, which are strong enough to withstand tons of pressure from the top of the mausoleums. The mausoleum constructed for Baron Adrian Van Reede, the director of the Dutch company in the Indies, who died in 1691, is the main attraction of the Dutch cemetery.
