Chris­t­ian Ceme­tery (Fan Zai Mu Yuan 番仔墓园)

There are four sep­a­rate ceme­ter­ies spread out around a sin­gle rolling hill in Nei Cuo Ao. All of them are beau­ti­ful, lush, mys­te­ri­ous, and over­grown with cen­turies’ worth of veg­e­ta­tion, and are well worth ex­plor­ing and pho­tograph­ing.

Chris­tians were main­ly buried in the grave­yard near Anx­i­an Hall, es­pe­cial­ly Chi­nese Chris­tians who lived on Ku­lang­su. The ceme­tery was di­vid­ed in­to three ar­eas form­ing a tri­an­gle, with Anx­i­an Hall in the cen­ter, #1 ceme­tery group in front, #2 to the back and #3 on the side.

墓园集中在安献楼周边,大致呈三角状分布,墓葬年代主要在清代和民国期间,墓主以当年居住在鼓浪屿的华人基督徒为主,墓式反映了基督教本土化的历史。
