Double plots are now available for pre-purchase at the first #Muslim-only cemetery to be built in #Sydney.
The Garden #Cemetery is being designed for #Greendale Road, #Bringelly, in the city's western outskirts.
Plans for the cemetery have already been approved but modifications to a development application are currently being assessed by #Liverpool Council, the Canterbury-Bankstown Express reported.
The 10-hectare cemetery will comprise 14,490 burial plots, 4722 urn burials and 25,100 ash interments.
It will also feature a visitor's centre, covered ceremonial space, chapel, caretaker's lodge, cafe and parking for 161 cars. 'The Garden Cemetery will be the first not-for-profit company to provide a contemporary, holistic and ethical burial solution for all #Muslims,' a website for the cemetery says. 'First release 1,000 double-plots [are] available for Muslims to pre-purchase now. 'The Garden Cemetery will undertake its duties under the guidance of being #Sharia Compliant and will be the first eco-friendly cemetery in Sydney to embrace and nurture the wonderful natural environment we are blessed to be operate in.' Pre-purchase plots are currently being offered for the discounted upfront cost of $7500.
Sydney already has cemeteries that feature dedicated Muslim burial areas, including #Rookwood Cemetery.
But The Garden Cemetery will be the first cemetery exclusive for Muslims. #Muslimah #Muslimahs #Australian #Australians
