  • Visited My Idol "Bruce Lee & his son Brandon" is a clean quiet scenic cemetery. From the entrance you look diagonally to your left & up above before the American Flag, is where you'll find his grave site. You'll probably notice a crowd of people there since it's the most visited site. Please don't just throw flowers it looks trashy, try to place them flat on ground, facing you & try to roll down the paper so everyone else can see the flowers & not just paper thrown in the floor. I left him some oranges, incense & gave a little prayer!
  • Nice clean quiet place.......visit famous people that have passed on.......
  • 5 stars for a nicely maintained resting place for many including Bruce and Brandon Lee.
  • This is a beautiful forever resting place for so many. Of course, you'll also find Bruce and Brandon Lee, we were humbled to pay our respects to these two legends.
  • Bruce Lee's final resting place
