Nirvana Penang West Lake Garden Kek Lok Si
Penang’s Kek Lok Si earns its noble reputation as a spiritual home that cares for the needy. Following the purchase of the West Lake land, Kek Lok Si takes pride in offering cremation services for the devotees. All proceeds from the memorial services will go towards a charity and welfare trust for the construction of an old folk home and orphanage.
Nirvana salutes Kek Lok Si’s undivided diligence in blessing the needy and has now joined forces with the temple to create an ideal final resting place for the departing souls through the West Lake columbarium. The proceeds from the cremation services will be dedicated to the welfare of the underprivileged senior citizens, orphans and other charitable projects, in the name of benevolence.
Nirvana Memorial Park (Penang)’s West Lake Garden nestles on the foothill of Kek Lok Si Temple, of the Pearl of the Orient. The establishment is embraced by fetching mountains and charming rivers that conjure up a picturesque ambience. It rides on the luxury of nature given its strategic location that bonds with its natural surroundings. The memorial park exudes the vibrancy of lush mountains and eternal water flow, which is the very essence of Chinese landscape design. The columbarium is coated with ivory white to emanate the grandeur and nobility of the architecture, as if a utopia existed with the help of god, where the departed call it home, in the arms of nature.
High up in the mountains, the echoes of Buddhism mantra resonate with pleasant chirps from the woods, where butterflies help spread the good vibes alongside the tolling bells. Feel the warmth and serenity of the environment as you remember your loved one. This is a place filled with such a dignity yet being resplendent.
*All income generated by Kek Lok Si Temple will go towards the development of the shelter homes for the underprivileged senior citizens, orphans and other charitable projects.

Western Three Saint Columbarium
The luxurious columbarium adopts a clever mix of ancient and modern architectural hues. Consequently, the development showcases the aesthetic appeal of both worlds. From design concept to materials sourcing and construction, every process embodies the diligence and intelligence of the architects. The glittering finish further raises the elegance of the columbarium. With the kind-looking Goddess of Mercy emanating endless blessings, feel the warm attachment and a strong sense of tranquility as you pay homage to your loved one.
White Perfection Columbarium
The very design of the columbarium at West Lake Garden draws inspiration from the concept of ‘white is the colour of perfection’. More precisely, white represents cleanliness, innocence and modesty. By using white as its fundamental colour, it reflects purity, light, faithfulness and holiness. Through this, life gets sublimated, purified and set free, spiritually. The columbarium takes pure white predominantly in its appearance. Every floor and row are established in an orderly manner to perfectly match the exquisitely crafted white roof featuring amazing art forms. This suggests nobility and purity go hand in hand as depicted in the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss where peace and harmony come together. This marks a dignified final resting place by uplifting the ‘spirit of life’ with such a great honour.
The tradition of placing an ancestral tablet at home is passed down from generation to generation in a typical Chinese home. The ancestral tablet serves as a symbol of remembrance and reverence as family members pay homage to their ancestors.
An ancestral tablet forms the pivotal point of a household, reminding family members of their ancestors’ existence and bonding all the family units together through a bloodline originating from time immemorial.
However, this tradition has been ignored due to the pressure of a fast-paced city lifestyle, attitude changed and space limitation in modern homes. Nevertheless, Nirvana is reviving the tradition of remembrance and commemoration through the presentation of Ancestral Tablets at Nirvana Memorial Park.
