A quiet place

View Large On Black

Most places in Hong Kong is filled with sounds 24 x 7. But this place is where some comes for a little rest.

 

This is but a tiny corner of the Hong Kong Christian Churches Union Pok Fu Lam Road Cemetery. It covers an entire hill side like a vast terraced rice paddy. Some say this is the largest Christian cemetery in Asia. This photo was taken a day after the Ching Ming Festival in mid April, it is essentially spring cleaning for your ancestors, many visitors came and left fresh flowers for their loved ones.
