Trees In The Cemetery Park ~ Nature Tuesday

Still using the stock of photos that I took at my father’s cemetery a few days before new year, I posted one more for the Nature Tuesday challenge this time.

The Kalibata National Heroes Cemetery – Jakarta consists of several main blocks which divided based on religions. The main blocks are also divided into several sub-blocks based on the funeral year and the width of the sub-blocks themselves. In general, every sub-block has around 150 tombs and each sub-block is surrounded by rows of large trees of various types as well as paths that are provided for the pilgrims’ passing.

The grave of my father is located in a sub-block located in the left rear part of the cemetery. Not far from the sub-block stands a dividing wall of the tomb area with the outside environment around it. The high wall stands on the side of the path I mentioned above. It was at the edge of the path near the wall that I took this picture. Under the shade of large trees, out there looks a towering electric transmission tower that is also surrounded by trees.

Under the blue sky at that time, without an umbrella or outside the shade of a tree, the hot sun was quite stinging on the skin.

    • I’m grateful your country gave a decent funeral to the veterans there. In my country, there are only 32 cemetery heroes and 1 national heroes cemetery, and those who can be buried there must be national heroes, or considered as heroes by presidential decree or have one or more highest honorary signs, can be the Republic of Indonesia Star, Guerrillas Star, as well as other stars according to the laws and regulations. Also, someone who has services to the state and is proposed by the president is also entitled.

  2. There are some lovely trees in that cemetery where you father is. The cemetery in my town is very large and has some beautiful trees in it. There’s lots of squirrels there too. Lots of people go and feed them. There are a few heroes too. There is 1 man that helped build Nelsons Column in my town. Nelsons Column is dedicated to Lord Nelson. Interesting story!
