    Buddhist Urn Cemetary...Any recommendation pls

    My hubby decide to relocate his dad's remainings to a Buddhist Urn Cemetary in Klang Valley... We found that Nirwana is serene and clean but very $$ costly. Besides this place, is there any other suggestions. Our budget is only RM10k-12k (max) for relocation work and a double URn altar. I have checked with a special sifu (recommended and quite reputable in this sort of work) and his fee is approx RM4,500 (relocation from Melaka to KL). We'll need about RM1k for MISC and that will leave us only a budget of RM5k-6k to purchase the double URn Altar. Also heard that these places will charge a fee of approx RM80-100 for maintenance yearly. Well, for those with ancestors placed at these sort of Buddhist Urn Cemetary, please give advice and suggestions. Thanks!

    My dad is placed in Nirvana, Semenyih. The cheapest price I think is RM 4k per single compartment. If double compartment, it might be RM7k plus. The funny thing is the higher height of the compartment, the more cheaper it is.

    You should try checking it out with Modern Caskets, PJ and see if they got any priests to do the relocation. Ask the service advisers. They often have their own contacts. Maybe you can do a package deal.

    There's also one Cemetary called Fairy Park in Jln Meru, Klang. It is cheaper than Nirvana but not as nice as Nirvana. It is after Meru town at the junction where you turn off to Jln Kapar.

    Good luck.

    Ya, Fairy Park in Klang is also another option. My parents have already book their slot there.

    thats good of your hubby to do it...

    What you can do is, take the urn and throw it in out sea. Then place their picture in a temple, (Jalan Gasing, Poh Lum can do it). Then every year you can go there and pray.

    If you wanna put the urn, Nirvana have a building in Jln Sg Besi (I am not sure is it, but if you travel along Seremban Highway from KL you will see it on your left). Can check it out with them.

    My ancestors graves are in Muar Johore. Every year without fail, we gather as one large family reunion to clean the graves. This year we have sisters from Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. It is fun and more importantly enjoy the union and food of this wonderful town. we also saw uncare graves that give us the feeling that their siblings may have migrated but it sure look deplorable.

    I do not agree to pay huge sum for temples to pray on your behalf. That commercialization. if three is a word. Have a heart and you may not realise that your siblings are watching. That's Cheng Beng. It is not a religion but a great Chinese Culture.

    For your information.
    Nirvana do not charge any maintainence fees even though the place is air conditioned round the clock. And I think Fairy Park also do not charge as well. It is just one off fee included when you buy the compartment.

    Just for vocabulary knowledge -

    From the free-dictionary the place where you have vaults to keep urns containing ashes of the dead is known as a columbarium

    Now you know.

    Cheng Beng is only once a year and I believe that it is not too much to ask for anybody to observe the ritual. However, I always respect and care for elders and parents when they are alive than dead. It is no point spending thousands for funeral rites , when the money can be spend on them to make them happy when they are alive.

    Well said Nick. Fully endorse your statement. Dont be like me, wishing if only I had spent more time with both my parents when they were around. Yes...we were busy. Yes we were building our careers and some perhaps building their fortune. But...not good enough reasons. To those who still have your parents, you still have the option not to regret later. Love them and spend more time with them. They wont be around with you for long because time flies.

    check with Poh Lum Temple, Jalan Gasing. They provide such kind of services.

    My grandparents, aunties and uncles ashes are all thrown in to the sea which leaves an altar for us to pay our respect to them.

    Today's wake services and urn memorial placement have become very commercial , likened to a wedding do, where they know how to tap the love ones weakness. Poh lum temple in Jalan Gasing is a charitable outfit and they do not fix a price rate but a minimum donation. Be simple and I sure your love one would have wish for, afterall from ashes we shall return to ashes.

    Do good deeds when you are able on earth than to bribe your way to heaven or hell. Take care of your aged ones like you have been taken care of when you are a baby. God Blessed.

    Thanks for all the advices....well last weekend we bought 2 single side by side urn compartment (columbarium) at Nilai Memorial Park. We settled for the ones inside the Quadrangle2. It was clean and convenient for us to pay our respects to our dad as most children are staying in USJ. When it comes to Cheng Meng, mom couldn't follow us anymore to the cemetary in Melaka as she is over 70 now and her legs are weak to walk up. Now knowing that her children had arranged for dad's remains to be relocated to a nearer site really comforts her.
    Hubby's family cannot accept the idea of releasing the ashes to sea so as children, we need to also go with mom's suggestion as she is the most senior.
    We got the 2 single side by side columbarium at a discounted price of RM6,300++ (NP 9,000++) after a 38% off due to Cheng Meng period and good to know it has already included all those yearly maintenance fee. What we like about placing our ancestors here is that every 1st and 15th day of the lunar calendar, there is chanting conducted here.
    All our date and time of birth is being submitted to a sifu to calculate a good day to do the relocation ritual. I think it would be withing 2 months that is before the 7th month HUngry Ghost Fest.
    Yes, I do agree Cheng Meng is a yearly ritual but if we can do it without fuss and allocation of leaves and the work done to adjusts which day and time to do it with all the children is hectic. Some wants to follow together, some not. Some wants it this day, others that.
    So with the columbarium at Nilai, I guess the children can go there according to their own convenience. No fuss...
    Yes, you are right too about the difference in prices according to height. It seems the lowest level is cheapest and the eye level ones are the most costly, then the normal priced ones are the ones above eye level. We got those about 7 feet up. There are some cheaper ones outside the Quadrangle in which they called Corridor which cost about RM1,800 ups I guess.
    We were being brought round the place, introducing from the cheapest columbarium to the most costly cemetary at the hill top. It seems the late mom of one of our long time Minister (during Mahathir Management) is being placed there and the site cost a whopping few hundred thousand ringgit!!---nearing 7 figure! Renown (YT_) developer's dad was there too and the site was at RM7figure... TALK ABOUT FENGSHUI!!
    To us its just for the sake of convenient and cleanliness for siblings to pay their respects.
