The Dutch Cemetery, Fort Kochi. The locked gate is to prevent vandalism; the cemetery is opened on request. Claimed to be the oldest European cemetery in India, the Dutch Cemetery at Fort Kochi was consecrated in 1724. After defeating the Portuguese in 1663AD, the Dutch ruled Cochin for almost 130 years; till the end of the 18th century. Not known to integrate with the local people and culture, the Dutch left very few traces of their occupation and left nothing in terms of festivals or food. . #dutch #dutchcemetery #burial #dutchoccupation #heritage #history #churchofsouthindia #european #holland #netherlands #fortkochi #fortcochin #restoration #keralahistory #preserved #ernakulam #dutchrule #fortkochibeach #fortcochinbeach #heritage #keralahistory #heritagestructures #keralahistory #kerala #keralatourism #kochitourism #cochin at Fort Cochin
