"In Honor of the Founder"

Located within the St John Church, Job Charnock's Tomb is truly a sight to behold. One of the oldest English monuments in the city, it was constructed in the memory of English merchant-adventurer, Job Charnock, who is popularly believed to have founded the city of Kolkata in 1690. The mausoleum was built by Job Charnock's successor and son-in-law Sir Charles Eyre, in 1695. Constructed from a unique kind of rock called 'Charnockite', this edifice projects the deep rooted respect that was bestowed upon this individual. The tomb itself is engraved with a short text in Latin honoring the man.
