If you are hearing this place for the first time, I shall spare a few lines to explain. Nirvana Memorial Park is a burial ground, in Semenyih, about 1 hour away from Kuala Lumpur, and 1 hour away from Seremban. This burial ground caters mostly for the Chinese, whether Buddhists, Christians or Taoism. Customers can choose whether to have their (or their family’s) bodies buried or cremated. And mind you, a plot of land here is not cheap. The price ranges from few thousands to few hundred thousands! They even special packages to cater for different needs and demands! Eg:
- Urns plot (aka Flat houses)
- Urns in the Golden Dragon (aka Condominiums)
- Graveyards for couples (aka Terrace houses)
- Special graveyards for couples (aka Bungalow houses)
- Higher end plots (aka higher end Bungalow houses)
- Family Plots
- BIGGER family plots
- EVEN BIGGER family plots
- Artistic plots for artists
- Plots for pets (how cute can that be?)
(Note: According to my sis, Tong Sam Zhong is the King of Afterlife~ not sure how true is that..)
We were welcomed by boddhisatva who is governing the west heaven with guan yin and amitabha.
This is the Golden Dragon. Customers who preferred their body to be cremated can choose to place their urn here, inside this Golden Dragon. It is fully air-conditioned with the sound of peaceful prayers chanting at the background.
The view of the burial ground.. gosh, this place is seriously big...
One of the super expensive grave yard. According to my mum, the feng shui of this plot is very good. Yes, my mother, she is a very STRONG believer of feng shui. Note:
1. Rounded tomb
2. Rounded arch, welcoming
3. High back, with solid wall
4. Steps moving up into the praying area
5. Looking grand and impressive
Some people actually fenced up their grave yard... not so welcoming now, ei.. Not e: The sign ' Private Property, No admittance'.. i think they should have written something like :' trespassers will be haunted for the rest of their lives' or something like that, haha! would be quite effective~
This couple's grave yard also very nice.. They are Christians.. Note: the 2 little white angels... What attracted me most about this grave yard was the picture at the back (right most)
A close up of the picture.. how sweet, right? got poem somemore...
This is a huge family plot..
We visited Bai Guang, a local artist, whose grave yard was super impressive... there was a piano carved from rock and marble.. which plays her music magically... i'll post the pictures next time, when my internet connection speed is better (dial up sucks! siGh...)...
Oh yes, one more thing, before i end this. Guess what? There was one family plot which cost in total RM5.1 Million!! Big land, plus feng shui fees, and renovation... how crazy is that?? (sorry, i don't have the picture though).. Some people really believe in having a nice place after death... and the salesman from Nirvana liked to use the word ~forever~... 'why not get something good to last forever?'-he said... RM5.1 Million, if given out to charity, can build so many schools and feed to many mouths! and here, it was spent on a burial ground.. wow! a bit sakit hati lor~ sigh.. nevermind lar...
After a whole day, it was finally, time to go home.. yeay! i felt soooo tired and sleepy... i think it shows in my eyes... got dark circles some more... and a sunburn... =(
What a family trip!
