Photographer's Note

Jafarganj Cemetery was built by Mir Jafar over an area of 3.51 acres.
It is said that earlier there was a "Kitchen Garden" at the site of this cemetery which Shah Khanaum Begum (Mir Jafar's wife and Alivardi Khan's sister) was very fond of.

The Jafarganj Cemetery has the graves of the family members of the Nawab of Bengal.

At present this graveyard is controlled and maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India.
