Tainan – Anping Old Graveyard


During our visit to Tainan we had a glimpse at Anping, which is considered „the absolute must-see“ (according to the travel-book authors). Well, being there it was not too interesting with tourists everywhere and every old house converted to a shop selling candy or food or souvenirs.

So we strolled around – rather disappointed – and by accident found this fotographic marvel – the old graveyard…

It is more like a City for the Dead spreading out between the cities of the living

Small houses, neglect, dirt, worship – everything

Over time graves are not well maintained

Some are overgrown

the shrines for the dead are omni-present

just like real life…

with ovens to burn devotions for the deceased (needed on the other side…)

a fairly groovy atmosphere – pretty much like a Tim Burton film

No real path, no way, wild dogs

the approach from the other side

waiting in line (who will be the next one…)

A guardian…

Cleaning up is a mandatory task as well
