The grandiose of each tomb drew my attention more than I imagined, making it worth the visit, as soon as I entered the gates.
Moreover, each tomb is unique in its way of construction style and quite gigantic. How exotic would have it been for foreign traders to be entombed in such a panache in foreign land? Well, it could have been the result of rivalry with their European contemporary the Portuguese who came to Surat before the English. In comparison to other graveyards of colonial Era across India, there is no match to these, one of kind tombs that screams sophistication and wealth of the City back then, and of the traders who made fortunes after immigrating to then major commercial hub and busting port in Asia.
