Old Christian Cemetery In Kuching

Tucked behind the Sarawak State Museum is an old cemetery, filled with Chinese graves with Christian symbols, an interesting combination. The last graves date to the 1960s with many plots fading back to the land.

A section of the cemetery.

More graves, some elevated and elaborate. Others, a simple wooden cross, or what's left of one, headed to dust.

Common in Asia (and old Europe), a photograph on the headstone.

Details; angels, books and old flower bases.

Combining Chinese characters and a cross.
