        How Much do Columbarium Vaults Costs in the Philippines?
        In the Philippines, more families are open to cremating their loved ones as a post-funeral practice. Cremation is the process of disposing of a dead body through burning and turning it into ashes. There are many unique ways to store cremated remains such as placing them in an urn to be displayed at your home altar, turning them into jewelry pieces to be distributed to close family members, or planting them in your backyard garden. However, nothing could compare to the tradition of storing one’s ashes in a columbarium.

        A Columbarium is typically a building or a room that is used to store urns, which is a custom originating from ancient Rome. This final resting place is most commonly found near a church or a cemetery, allowing the family members to visit the remains of the dead in a public yet solemn setting. The urns are individually placed in a columbarium niche, which are the shelves made out of luxurious materials of granite and marble. Each niche is completed with a memorial plaque and a flower holder for visitations.

        It is evident that columbariums are paving their way in the death care services market as it provides several advantages to its buyers. First and foremost, columbariums are very affordable compared to other burial options like a memorial lawn that requires heavy maintenance costs. Moreover, family members can also share one niche since more than one urn may fit inside, thus, immediately splitting costs in half. Columbariums are also sustainable for the environment since they take up less space of valuable land. And lastly, placing one’s remains in a columbarium provides them guaranteed tranquility and security that their resting place is in a much-respected setting.

        In Golden Haven, we believe that columbariums are more than just burial sites. Alternatively, they are also great investments to prepare your family when the time comes. It is also a good financial investment since the value of columbariums in Golden Haven increases over time. If you were to invest in your resting place today, wouldn’t you want to get the best of the best? Golden Haven offers the most exquisite personalized columbariums, across six wonderful locations nationwide. Let’s take a tour of the Golden Haven columbariums in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao!

        Columbariums in Visayas
        Moving forward, there are also two wonderful columbariums offered in the Visayas region, which are specifically located in Iloilo and Cebu city.
