This way Thursway time again. This week I am featuring Dhaka Christian Cemetery, located in old Dhaka in the South Asian country of Bangladesh. The country which used to be a part of India was colonized by the British and in the middle of the city chaos lies this quiet, peaceful place, a cemetery serving as the final resting place for British colonizers. Bangladesh is predominantly a Muslim country, but a trickle of its population is Christian. My MIL’s grave is here, that’s why I discovered this. I’ve been searching for other information about this online but I couldn’t. Plus fellow flickr users from Bangladesh have not featured this. My guess is that they are Muslim and this is a Christian cemetery, they wouldn’t really need to come here. The gate is always close btw.
This is a sample of the tombs I found. Very interesting and fascinating architecture. I found tombs dating back from the 1700. I have blogged about this in my photo blog, here it is if you’re interested.
This way thurs way comes to you every Thursday. If you have a sign, signage, road, etc you want to share, join us.
