THE DUTCH CEMETERY & ST. ANTONY’S CHURCH AT PULICAT- A PART OF PULICAT HERITAGE VISIT

.. a Continuation post of Pulivat – A heritage Visit.
25th February 2017.
THE DUTCH CEMETERY
Visited to this Dutch Cemetery at Pulicat ( Pazhaverkadu ) last year and posted in my blog with details and photographs. This visit is focused on heritage value. The cemetery has the graves mainly for the Dutch personal, who lived in Pulicat during 17th century. Ornamental engravings were done with birds, animals, flowers etc. It was told that from one of the tomb an underground passage was leading to the fort. Some are died during the month of October and November. We could trace a 19th century tomb also.

  This tomb stone has the engravings of the Dutch Fort, Port with sea and fish in the water, Nearby Village. 







 This is the latest 19th century

 Our young curator searches for the passage, whether it goes to the Fort?

ST ANTONY’S CHURCH
This Church might have been built during  1700’s, ie 18th Century. Constructed with brick and Tiled roof. The alter is very simple.  At the entrance top some of the tiles had fallen down and it was told that the Church is under worship.
