Manila North Cemetery (Manila)

The Manila North Cemetery (or Cementerio del Norte), which measures 54 hectares, is considered the biggest and one of the oldest cemeteries in Metro Manila (oldest is the La Loma Cemetery followed by the Chinese Cemetery). Beside it are two other important cemeteries, namely the La Loma Cemetery and the Manila Chinese Cemetery. The cemetery is owned by the Manila city government and has initiated an expansion program to build more "apartment tombs" and a crematorium. (from Wikipedia)

The Manila North Cemetery is a Gem in Manila. The Architecture of the Mausoleums reflect the grace and elegance of a bygone era. The City Government of Manila should do something about cleanliness inside th cemetery as garbage can be found littered on tombs, streets. The presence of hanging clothes, people inside tombs sleeping add a bit of humor to the rather serious tone of the cemetery but they also reflect the story state that our country is in also.

The Manila North Cemetery is Open to the Public.
