The Cemeteries of Bangalore | B•LORE by BIC

Film by Rehaan Diaz

Bangalore offers a place to remember and mourn the ones we have lost, through its cemeteries, for different faiths and religions. These cemeteries are spread out across vast acres of land, often found in the heart of the city in places such as the Kalpalli Cemetery in Cox Town, the Shia Qabristan in Richmond Town, the Sacred Heart Church in Victoria Layout, the Indian Christian Cemetery off Hosur Road and the Lakshmipuram Graveyard near Indiranagar. The film provides an insight into the various cemeteries in the city, the practices followed by some of the diverse residents of Bangalore and the history behind the location and existence of some of these spaces and the meaning it holds.
