Photo gallery: Last remaining Hakka Cemetery at Holland Close


Right smack in the middle of a housing estate, just a stone's throw away from the hip and bustling Holland Village, lies a cemetery with nearly 3,000 graves.

The location of the last remaining Hakka cemetery, nestled on prime land in a residential area at Holland Close, bears testimony to how it once escaped the onslaught of development. But it may not be lucky a second time round.

Committee members from the clan association have suggested clearing it out and building a multi-storey building there instead.
