Manila Chinese Cemetery

The Manila Chinese Cemetery is the second oldest cemetery in Manila after La Loma Cemetery and was designated as the resting place for the Chinese citizens who were denied burial in Catholic cemeteries during the Spanish colonial period. The cemetery was witness to many executions during World War II. Among them were Girl Scouts organizer Josefa Llanes Escoda, Boy Scout of the Philippines founder Vicente Lim literary geniuses Rafael Roces and Manuel Arguilla, star athlete-turned-guerrilla spy Virgilio Lobregat, and Chinese Consul General Yang Guangsheng. Apolinario Mabini was also buried in the cemetery before his remains were transferred to Batangas. **

Noong nakaraang Okt. 26, 2012 kasama ng aking mga kaibigang ay pumunta kami sa Manila Chinese Cemetery para sa isang kakaibang photowalk kung dati rati ay malimit kami sa Intramuros,Binondo o sa Escolta ngaun naman sa cementeryo naman ang aming destinasyon.

Isa sa mga interesting sa Manila Chinese Cemetery ay ang mga naggagandahang mga mausoleum mula ordinaryo mausoleum patungo sa mas maganda.

Dito rin nakalibing ang ilan sa mga sikat na Filipino-Chinese katulad na lamang ni Ma mon Luk ang tinuturing mami king ng Pinas.


Narito ang ilan sa mga mausoleum sa loob ng Manila Chinese Cemetery.
