The cemetery stretches over 3 hills covering an area of 26ha and holds more than 12,000 graves with tombs dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
At the foot of the hill you can find the Well of Hang Li Po which is next to the Sam Po Kong Temple.
The Hang Li Po well is the oldest water well in Malaysia. It was built in 1459 by followers of Hang Li Poh and hence one of the oldest examples of Chinese influence in the malaysian peninsula. The well later was also used by the Portuguese as their main water supply after conquering Malacca in 1511.
