    Old British Graveyard was established in July 1870, during British Raj's Gilgit Agency. With time the cemetery had different names: Hayward Garden, Christian Cemetery and Jawahir Bagh. It is located near Agha Khan Shahi Polo Ground at Khazana Road, the Graveyard is covered in a compound wall consisting of about 18 graves of british travelers and tourists.

    There are at least 18 graves in what is now called the British cemetery. Situated in the heart of Gilgit city — the capital of mountainous Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) which featured prominently in the historical narrative of the imperialist Great Game — the significance of this final resting place of British military personnel, foreign explorers, trekkers and mountaineers who lost their lives thousands of miles away from home is lost on many of the locals.
