Dutch Garden
 

One of the most important tourist attraction in Surat is the ancient Dutch garden. Actually it is the cemetery of the Dutch officers who had landed and settled in Gujarat for their business enterprise. The huge striking tombs here are splendid symbols of history and narrates the story of the erstwhile power and glory. 

The tombs of Christopher Oxenden and George Oxenden, the two English traders, who were in charge of English factory in Surat are the biggest tombs in the cemetery. Another tomb that stands impressively in the garden is of Baron Adrian Van Reede, the director of the Dutch Company in India who had died in 1691. The well maintained cenotaphs and the pleasant garden area around, attracts a lot of tourists.
