Great news for the Dutch-Indian shared heritage! The Dutch cemetery in Machilipatnam is being renovated. 20 tombstones 16 with Dutch tombstones tell interesting stories, see my pix. Two guys watchers are also building contractors who guide around for the Archeological department of Machilipatnam. They started one week ago to construct a walking path and perkjes around the tombstones. They expected to finish this work in one month.

The oldest tomb was from 1610, a young boy. Other Dutch inscriptions have dates between 1660 and 1689.
