When I taken to the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Boston by my son stating that it was inportant place to visit, little did I know that the cemetery would be like a manicured landscaped garden with all round greenery because of the fact that I was so used to seeing those dull looking overcrowded cemeteries in India.

Mount Auburn Cemetery in Massachusetts, was founded in 1831 as "America's first garden cemetery" or "rural cemetery".The 174-acre cemetery is important for its historical aspects. Mount Auburn was established at a time when Americans had a sentimental interest in rural cemeteries.It is still well known for its tranquil atmosphere.
