Although there are displays in the temple at the foot of the hill explaining the controversial attempts by the government to remove the graves and develop the hillside, since the opposition won out in this case and saved the site, the hillside itself is now a peaceful spot containing countless graves, old and new. Supposedly the oldest grave on the site is about 200 years old. Although we could read a little of the Chinese characters on the graves (and one newer grave even had English as well as Chinese) it would have been nice if there had been a signboard explaining the basic structure of a traditional Chinese grave, so that we could better appreciate what we were looking at and could avoid any potential disrespect or desecration.
Still, in the end we were very happy to have stopped by here and taken the time to wander the hillside. Apparently it's also a popular jogging spot for locals.
