[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shooting the back roads of Hanoi with friend Le Bich. This area was agriculture for flowers. Discovered this storage land of special temples of Vietnamese for burial. Not sure if family's come here to see displays.
Note:a special altar that had been previously set up for the dead member is lighted with candles continuously and incense sticks burned for 100 days.

Regular ceremonies are held for the dead person after that time, especially on the death anniversary, the lunar New Year Period (Tet) and often on the 1st and 15th days of each lunar month.

Families normally have a special dinner on the 49th and 100th day after the death and also on the first anniversary. They may have a dinner every year after that on the death anniversary.

When the body is exhumed three years later and the bones are cleaned and re-arranged in proper order and reburied in a small earthenware coffin, only relatives and close friends are in attendance, and no special social gathering is held.
