TWTW #15:

08 Oct

Dhaka Christian Cemetery in Bangladesh is a fascinating place to visit.  It is filled with ruins from 1700s and 1800s of mausoleums and graves of British colonizers. I have posted this on my other blog, but I am really too lazy to dig up that post and since I don’t label or tag my posts, it’s going to require some searching. 

This is among those I find interesting. It’s an archway, one side only. I don’t know what it used to be. I don’t really know how old this one is.  But it looks like someone put stepping stones in between the row of trees. It appears to be a walking path.  To where?  I don’t know.  The yellow building in the background is housing and no longer inside the cemetery compound. 

Join us in search of signs, signage, path, roads, streets, and the like.  Thanks to Miss Tink for hosting.  TWTW is here. Join us.

    Oh I love that! I like old places especially the ruins. I have also posted an abandoned cemetery in Ilocos Sur and I like the place so much, spooky and mysterious. Thanks for sharing and the visit.

    This is really a beautiful photo. Gorgeous architecture. Glad to see it is still in good condition for as old as it is.

    sounds like a very interesting place to visit! i can see the pathstone and i think it’s one that is going nowhere. 🙂

    Hmmm makes me wonder where that path was supposed to go. Also, are the bottoms of the tree trunks painted, or are they naturally white on the bottom?

      It’s interesting to know why they painted the tree bottoms over there. I went outside the city too and the same was true with the trees. I did not ask, which is a pity really.

    I think the tree bottoms are painted white to discourage insects that might bore into the tree trunk. But whatever the reason, the result is a very interesting picture.
