    Recently, I visited Nirvana Memorial Park (a Chinese cemetery). The place is simply beautiful.

    Nirvana Corporation--the management of the cemetery is the largest bereavement care group in South East Asia.

    Ms Bai-Guang the greatest actresses and singers of China was buried in Nirvana Memorial Park, Malaysia. She acted in many movies and recorded many songs. Her unique tombstone has stereo speakers that plays permanent recording of some her songs.



    Here are some photos from my trip:

    Picture 1 - Mr. Sandy or Shā Wùjìng

    [​IMG]

    This is a life size statue of Shā Wùjìng. He is one of the three helpers
    of Xuánzàng in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. Wujing
    was originally a general in Heaven, more specifically a Curtain-Lifting
    General. In a fit of rage, he destroyed a valuable vase. He was
    punished by the Jade Emperor, who had him struck 800 times
    with a rod and exiled to earth, where he was to be reincarnated
    as a terrible man-eating sand demon. Every seven days a sword
    would be sent from heaven to stab him 100 times in the chest
    before flying off.

    Picture 2 - ROAR!!! :shock:

    A pair of faded gold coloured lion guarding the entrance of the
    cemetery...perhaps warding off the evil spirits. Can you find
    the three mysterious faces on the statue?

    Picture 3 - This Way to Heaven

    I think Guan Yin (The Goddess Mercy) is referring to her portable GPS to locate Her next destination.
    I finally understand the meaning of Guan Yin's vase. The vase represents the compassion she pours
    out for all Her followers.

    Picture 4 - the Sound of Music

    [​IMG]

    These hailers were playing soothing music for the death. The
    music was audible all over the cemetery.

    Picture 5 - Ancient MILK BOTTLE? :blushing:

    Nope, I think this is an interesting incense burner.

    Cool! Very interesting. I wondered at first why you shot the lion from the angle you did -then after reading your caption I knew! Yep, I see the faces! From other Asian area photos that have been posted here recently, I'm discovering the Asian culture really likes bright colors. Thanks for sharing these I really enjoyed them!

    Thank you for looking and leaving some kind comments!! :hugs:

    Back here in Malaysia, we have Chinese, Malays, Indians, Punjabi and others. So, it's really a melting pot for vibrant culture and celebrations.

    Here are three more pictures:

    Picture 6 - REBORN

    [​IMG]

    The baby stone sculpture was lying on a bed of stones.
    The baby symbolizes rebirth or reincarnation in Buddhism.

    a Memorial Park (Semenyih) is very systematic. Unlike those old Chinese cemeteries -
    all jumbled up. There is a saying from the late Dato Choo Ching Hwa "Every person has
    the choice to a peaceful, tranquil and well-maintained setting as one's final resting place."
