Photographer's Note

According to Chinese calendar, tomorrow is the beginning of the month of March, also the beginning of the “Qing Ming” (清明节), a season of Chinese to sacrifice their ancestors. The tombs showing at above photo was shoot at Nirvana Memorial Park.

Nirvana Memorial Park (富贵山庄) is the largest and the most expensive burial site in Malaysia. It is famous with its good “Feng Shui” where the land is fertile growing with dense clumps, surrounding by mountains and streams. The actual location of this park is near to Kacau, about 20 minutes driving along Lalang Road from Semenyih town.

This is a luxury burial site for rich people, where the value for an unit cemetery is same with the price of a bungalow house. Some one can purchase their graveyard and choose the location they like when they are still alive. During the “Qing Ming”season, many rich descendants driving their luxury cars like BMW or Mercedes to this memorial park for sacrifice their ancestors. *Due to heavy tax (to protect local car’s industry), the price of an imported luxury car selling here become double or triple higher than the market price quote at Europe.

At the other site, burial sites for poor people are always out of maintain and growing with weeds.
