Protestant CemeteryĂ¢Â€Â‹ 2

Established in 1786, it is one of the oldest burial grounds (older than several other more well known cemeteries) in the world. The oldest remaining grave is from 1789 and the last burial was in 1892.

The domed tomb memorial is interesting, I have not seen one like that before.
They certainly have some memorials.
This is a lovely image, Ayush. The dappled filtered light is so pretty!

I really like the effects of the
sunlight on the stones, Ayush.

The picture had me wondering - I thought Singapore is mainly Islam and Buddhist. I looked up, and it is true, So this must be from way back, as you have indicated. Some of these guys must have thought themselves very important, or had too much money. The Protestant graves are normally simple with just a headstone and a flat gravestone, at the best.
There is an older one than that in my community. The Acadians were expelled from this island in 1758 and several cemeteries existed for them for generations before that.
There's some very impressive memorials there.
Clearly the well to do were buried here Ayush
Quite an interesting capture. The light is lovely.
(I spend time in a old grave yard with stones and monuments from the 1800s. It's by the city river and I go to watch the deer walking, eating and resting among the stones.)

I read the comment made by Louis and he is right, this is so unusual for a Protestant grave. it looks wonderful though considering the age. Love the sun and shadows.
That is very old indeed, Ayush, for a cemetery. It's one I'd love to have a slow walk-through to check it all out.

Some very grand memorials there. Just think what has happened in the world since some of those were erected.

Did you manage to find Franics Light's tomb?
