This Chinese cemetery is the only one of its kind in Singapore. Located in the heart of a thriving restaurant and bar culture, these uniformly placed graves are a stark contrast to the residential flats surrounding them. There are 3000 in total, all perfectly placed and tended to. Only 12 are true burials while the rest are all urn burials. This strange phenomenon came about when the government needed to relocate the 3000 urns, which explains the planned, tidy look of the graveyard.
