Moreover, there are also other graveyards, small ones surrounding pagodas...

Tomb Construction

There are two styles, tomb built and assembled (the one already made in the producing location, only moved to the tomb to the assembly.) You have to pay attention to the tomb if its land is weak, you must ask for building brick wall from bottom to top before lowering coffin in order to avoid collapse to come. A reality is that even knowing you can save a lot of money if contract made with outside builders but people often choose builders available right at the graveyard. It is this that if you ask the builders in the graveyard, they will be liable to maintain, take is the tomb intact, not damaged by bad people. The cost of construction is rather high depending on style and materials, from 12 to 180 millions of VND a case.

Tomb Dislocation

Tomb buried for years but depending on the style of the coffin, material of shroud, the geography situation of the burial place, body situation of the deceased… time to self-decay differs. When making contract of tomb dislocation (normally coffin farms and graveyard employees accept this job) you have to require them to offer for each case with different price… avoiding to be choked when affair is on the way to be done.
