Diners forced to eat around graves as people are buried in middle of fast food restaurant

Diners forced to eat around graves as people are buried in middle of fast food restaurant

Do you fancy some dinner with the dead?

When you’re planning on booking a nice meal, what is something that would make you wonder if the business owners are mad for featuring?

There are so many wacky and wonderful restaurants in the world - but this one takes the cake for sheer dedication to keeping history alive.

This little spot in Ahmedabad, India is home to a yummy menu, great seating options and…gravestones?

You read that right!

The Lucky Restaurant is built right on top of a burial ground and displays the graves inside and between tables and chairs.

So if you’ve ever wanted to be close to burial sarcophagi, then this is your chance.

The owner, Krishnan Kutti, made the bizarre choice to open a new restaurant on a cemetery after realising that he could benefit from it instead of scrapping his plans.

Initially, he didn’t know that the land was a cemetery, but when life gives you lemons…

So, instead of covering them or paving over the stones, he instead just built the restaurant around them.

However, Kutti did take precautions so that patrons wouldn’t touch the graves as he erected steel around them.

The graves are unknown and unnamed - but there is a theory that they belonged to Muslim followers of a 16th century Sufi saint.

But, according to Alta's Obscura, Kutti believes that dining with the dead is 'good luck' and the graves are treated with respect - being cleaned and dressed with fresh flowers every morning.

But this isn’t the only place you’ll be oddly up close and personal with a grave site.

Next time you’re at the Savannah Hilton Head airport, if you see two rectangular shapes side by side on the runway, those are graves too.

At the edge of runway 10 and 28, the final resting place of Catherine and Richard Dotson remain displayed with markers.

This 1877 burial ground was home to over 100 people - some of whom were slaves owned by the Dotson's and other relatives of the family.

This is due to the land was previously owned by the couple and part of it (the runway) was the family cemetery on their farm.

The Dotson's are also buried in an unconventional place.

After the couple passed, the military needed a place to land its B-24 ‘Liberators’ and B-17 ‘Flying Fortresses’ in preparation for World War II, which led to many of the graves being moved to Bonaventure Cemetery.

But not the Dotson’s - as their descendants wouldn’t consent to their graves being moved, the area was instead paved over so that a runway could be set up.

They also aren’t only graves at the airport, as its website explains that two more graves of Dotson relatives, Daniel Hueston and John Dotson, are near the airport's most active runway.

So, I guess the lesson to be learned from all of this is to be aware of your surroundings.

Because you never know if the place you’re travelling to has a grave inside, outside or under it.
