Many of the colonial settlers are buried here and I spent an interesting hour wandering around this shady place. Sad to read how many of the settlers died young and lost so many children to malaria and jungle fever. A tough life!

Just pass through it if the weather is nice and you want to take a stroll before/after visiting the Eastern & Oriental Hotel which is nearby; nothing to see really. Not worth more than 5 mins of your time.

I wanted to visit this site ever i came to know about it ages ago, alway intrigue by such site, especially if it holds historic stories. The main path was well maintain with a lot of frangipani tress and our morning walkabout (unguided) was peaceful, as we read the headstones with meaningful dedications of their love one. It was very educational too. Worth a visit.

Amazing history... told on the headstones in this small cemetary. So many jungle fever / malaria deaths... and kids... and travelers. Really takes you back to another time. Don't miss this place!

Cemetery walks appeal to history buffs or people who just like to explore a quiet bit of greenery in a city before anything else is open. An early morning walk amongst the shady magnolias through the Protestant Cemetery was quite interesting with old headstones and tombs providing a glimpse into historical life - or, more properly, historical death. There is a map at the entrance pointing out significant tombs else you can just wander around as we did. It was a bit hard to find specific graves even with this information.
