With the graves of some of the most acknowledged Englishmen ruling the city during British rule, you can get awestruck by the structures beautifully preserved. Walk the pure calmness of the place as it feels a complete solitary place cut off from the outside world.

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.
