Chinese Cemetery

Chinese Cemetery

The Chinese Cemetery is the second oldest cemetery in Manila.  Originally, this place was used for burial of Chinese citizens who were not allowed to be buried in Catholic cemeteries during the Spanish colonial period.  Currently, the Chinese Cemetery is used for the burial of the wealthy.  I was amazed at this luxurious cemetery. 

I think it should be called “City of the Dead” instead.  My two hour tour here showed me various mausoleums that actually have toilets and showers.  I also learned a lot about the Chinese Filipino culture and architecture during the tour.  I would go here again and recommend it to others.
