The Old Chinese Burial Chambers of Malacca

This looks best BIG and BOLD!

 

I've spent a nice weekend in Malacca and found some wonderful out of the way places. Most of these places are not at all obvious from the streets, but you just have to go through some doors and strange alleyways to find them.

 

This place is one of many throughout Malacca where the Chinese come to honor their dead and meditate. Behind this chamber are several more where tiny statuettes are erected for passed relatives. My friend Janus took a shot of me in front of a bunch of the tiny tombstones on my blog at stuckincustoms.com/2008/03/22/the-old-chinese-burial-cham...

. My mom and sister say I should post more pictures of myself!
