Raymond's tomb was built in the honor of the French General, Michel Joachim Marie Raymond. The tomb is 200 years old and is one of the best places to visit in India. Raymond came to the country in the hope of becoming a merchant, but joined the army of the reigning Nizam instead. Till now, this tomb is one the most respected places in Hyderabad. A close friend and associate of Nizam Ali Khan revealed that, Raymond had immense respect for the natives. He was popularly called 'Monsieur Raymond' and was extremely affectionate towards the locals. Every year, following the death of Raymond, the Nizams sent a box of cheroots and a bottle of beer to commemorate the death anniversary of this special individual.
