Way back in 1960s when Hong Kong was still a British colony, the administrators recommended the process of cremation to solve the problem of over populating the available cemetaries and now cremation rate has risen to 90 percent, however, Chinese people believe in burying the dead in the ground to rest in peace rather than burning.
This issue forced the government of Hong-Kong to construct a large place known as Columbaria where the dead’s ashes is stored instead of spreading it in public parks and in the sea, but still it’s not enough space.Follow @newslexpoint
