Cemetery with a view

Nirvana Memorial Park, Kota Kinabalu

A place on a hill with sea-view and only 20 minutes from the city?

The dead has never had it better.

Welcome to Nirvana Memorial Park, the most beautiful (and expensive) cemetery in Sabah. Located in Telipok, about 20 minutes north of Kota Kinabalu, the burial plots range from a couple of thousands to half a million ringgit only (for a large plot for two dozen family members). If you can’t afford one, blackmail your children. According to Chinese customs, the feng shui of one’s ancestors burial plots affect the fortunes of their descendants.

Even if you are not nearing your death-bed yet, this is a good place to come for some peace and quiet and to maybe read a book or two? As long as you don’t mind the invisible eyes peering over your shoulder. :p

Who needs heaven when you have Nirvana?

Where is it? Telipok, Sabah

Should you go? * Not exactly a tourist attraction, but if you’ve never seen something like this before...

Lost ratings: **** all the peace and quiet that you could want, unless it happens to be All Souls Day

 Getting there: 15-20 minutes by taxi from KK

      Pls be careful when investing in this so called NIRVANA. This is really ridiculous things happened to a friend of mine. She passed her plots Certificates to her best friend. Her 2 plots were being sell off without being informed!!! after 3 years then only she found out from her best friend’s friend. One issue is NIRVANA witness can anyhow sign without seeing my friend there!! The transaction was being transfer just liked that without receiving a single cents!! NIRVANA never want to take the responsibility. I feel this NIRVANA cannot be trusted!!!
