Κοιμητήριο Λεμεσού

The Armenian cemetery of Limassol is located on the western part of the Limassol-Platres road, within the administrative area of Kato Polemidhia. The land was granted to the Armenian-Cypriot community by the colonial government of Cyprus in 1946 but did not become operational until July 1960, because of the Law that stipulated that cemeteries need to have a wall separating them from their surrounding area. This wall was constructed by the donation of the then Mayor of Limassol, Costas Partasides, who was a member of AKEL. Until then, deceased Armenian-Cypriots from Limassol was buried primarily in Nicosia or Larnaca.[1]

About 150 burials have taken place at this cemetery, covering less than an eighth of its total area. In 2003, due to the widening of the Limassol-Platres road, about 20 tombs were moved westwards. In the near future, the cemetery will be the start of the Garyllis river linear park, which will be completed in 2013 and will end up in the old harbor.

Author's thoughts: I love this cemetery very much, most of the gravestones are cross-shaped and made out of white marble (?) or some type of white stone. Which fits the surrounded area very much. I as well have noticed that most of the gravestones have a small type of looking box where u can place the candles at and it will be protected from the rain.
