Nirvana Memorial Park
A resplendent jewel amidst spiritual tranquility
Nestled at the foothills of the Pearl of the Orient is the resplendent jewel that is Nirvana Memorial Park (Penang). One of the most highly prized locations in northern peninsular Malaysia, the columbaria is situated within view of the enormous landmark 99 feet bronze Goddess of Mercy statue that is part of the sprawling Kek Lok Si Temple complex at Ayer Itam – one of the largest and most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Southeast Asia.
The establishment boasts a stunning view of lush mountains, vibrant forests and charming meandering streams – a blissful scene of natural beauty described as reminiscent of Sukhavati, the Western Pure Land that inspired the name of the famed temple nearby. Nirvana Memorial Park (Penang) was developed as a close collaboration between Nirvana Asia and Kek Lok Si Temple trustees; as such, great effort was invested in ensuring architectural elements remain congruent with the overall visual aesthetics of the Buddhist complex and its surroundings.
The luxurious columbaria feature a fusion of traditional and modern that blends time-honoured designs with a fresh perspective. The result is a dignified yet spectacular palatial complex in which families may lay their departed loved ones to rest in supreme tranquillity, peace and comfort. Statues and images of enlightened beings adorn the interior – most notably in the Hall of the Western Trinity that is dedicated to the Three Western Saints – echo the spiritual bliss found at Kek Lok Si.
High up on a hill in a sea of emerald green, Nirvana Memorial Park (Penang) is indeed a rare jewel amidst the pleasing sounds of nature, resonating in harmony with the gentle tolling bells and daily chants from the nearby monastery. It is truly a spiritual paradise for both visitors and departed loved ones.
