Ahmedabad, India is a bustling café that serves milky tea and buttery rolls in a rather unique location. It’s a Lucky Restaurant, and the business has another reason for attention, it’s set in the middle of an old Muslim cemetery.

In the 1950’s K H Mohammed opened a tea stall outside the cemetery, Nair helped to expand it and they went into partnership. It’s slowly expanded and the cemetery was used in an attempt to make more space.

Workers are used to navigating around the businesses unique furniture, and move around as they serve tea to the visitors. The graves are not identified per say, local historians however believe that they are the resting place of relatives of a 16th Century Sufi Saint whose tomb lays nearby.

Each morning the graves are cleaned and fresh flowers placed on them, they are, as Nair says, his Lucky Charms.
