Hey! I am sorry for being absent not posting anything and just in general not using this site anymore haha. I enjoyed and still enjoy writing about cemeteries graveyards and everything but I might change my topic at some point. Maybe it's going to be about psychology or criminology I am not sure... Because I am right now really busy with school and another project I am working on right now.
Stay healthy my friends and take care!!!
The Merry Cemetery (Romanian: Cimitirul Vesel pronounced [t͡ʃimiˈtirul ˈvesel]) is a cemetery in the village of Săpânța, Maramureş county, Romania. It is famous for its brightly colored tombstones with naïve paintings describing, in an original and poetic manner, the people who are buried there in addition to scenes from their lives. The Merry Cemetery became an open-air museum and a national tourist attraction.
The unusual feature of this cemetery is that it diverges from the prevalent belief, culturally shared within European societies – a belief that views death as something indelibly solemn. Connections with the local Dacian culture have been made, a culture whose philosophical tenets presumably vouched for the immortality of the soul and the belief that death was a moment filled with joy and anticipation for a better life (see also Zalmoxianism).
(Info from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merry_Cemetery... My teacher would be so disappointed that I use Wikipedia for researches haha)
I found out about this Cemetery from a Classmate. This cemetery is really beautiful and at some point, it doesn't even seem like a cemetery. It's so colourful and different from all the cemeteries I have seen. The Naive art style of the tombstones gives a totally different feeling to the place in a good way. Because usually, people see cemeteries as a creepy and uncomfortable place to stay. But this. Actually shows a totally different perspective on how something like pain and just creativity can change everything.
All of the tombstones have poetic writing about the person who is laying under them. Most of them tell a short story of the most important things in their life and why they died. As well they have a small illustration of the person and there hobby or what they did when they were alive.
(some of them get pretty dark, with the translations...)
The Armenian cemetery of Limassol is located on the western part of the Limassol-Platres road, within the administrative area of Kato Polemidhia. The land was granted to the Armenian-Cypriot community by the colonial government of Cyprus in 1946 but did not become operational until July 1960, because of the Law that stipulated that cemeteries need to have a wall separating them from their surrounding area. This wall was constructed by the donation of the then Mayor of Limassol, Costas Partasides, who was a member of AKEL. Until then, deceased Armenian-Cypriots from Limassol was buried primarily in Nicosia or Larnaca.
About 150 burials have taken place at this cemetery, covering less than an eighth of its total area. In 2003, due to the widening of the Limassol-Platres road, about 20 tombs were moved westwards. In the near future, the cemetery will be the start of the Garyllis river linear park, which will be completed in 2013 and will end up in the old harbor.
Author's thoughts: I love this cemetery very much, most of the gravestones are cross-shaped and made out of white marble (?) or some type of white stone. Which fits the surrounded area very much. I as well have noticed that most of the gravestones have a small type of looking box where u can place the candles at and it will be protected from the rain.1 Comment
Tama Cemetery (多磨霊園, Tama Reien) in Tokyo is the largest municipal cemetery in Japan.
It is split between the cities of Fuchu and Koganei within the Tokyo Metropolis. First established in April 1923 as Tama Graveyard (多磨墓地, Tama Bochi), it was redesignated Tama Cemetery in 1935.
It is one of the largest green areas in Tokyo.
Through pictures, it seemed like a really calm place. I would want to visit it and walk through it all and spend some time alone there
The gravestones seemed different. Much different from those I know... They almost all look like huge memorials. referencing memorials in my country it totally doesn't stand next to these ones. Unless someone thought it out and asked one to be made that style
So basically I have been trying to change my header but sadly nothing is working. Every time I try to save it just doesn't work and seems to appear original (dark blue and lower light blue) If anyone knows a fix for that or instructions let me know, please!
Side note: I am trying to change the header into two simple colours, not an image.
