Feng Shui Inspired Design

At Springvale Botanical Cemetery, we have great respect and understanding of the Buddhist community, and we are proud to have created the beautifully decorated Song He Yuan on qi gathering land within our grounds.

Designed under Feng Shui principles on a westward facing slope, the site was carefully chosen under the guidance of Feng Shui Master, James Yao Wen Zheng, who also provided much advice on the cemetery design and landscaping.

Positioned at the top of the hill the working Di Zhang Wang Temple with its full-size Buddha overlooks the sloping landscape. Song He Yuan also features the Dragon’s Head on the top of the water feature, a statue of Guan Yin, imported from Fuzhou, statues of Amitabah and Dasezi and a number of pagodas, traditional water features, bridges and gardens.

Song He Yuan Buddhist Cemetery

When Feng Shui Master, James Yao Wen Zheng first surveyed Springvale Botanical Cemetery, he unexpectedly found a large block of land due to the west of the cemetery to be precisely at the settlement of the Dandenong Mountains.

He explained, “Down the settlement is a natural stream stopping the qi of the land, and hence pingyang channel is formed. The soil is fine but solid, moist but not flooded. It is rare and one of the best pieces of qi gathering land. I thereby formed an indissoluble bond with this land.”
