I was there to find the grave of Haide, there are many graves for Iranian died in America. It was interesting to see these graves and read who is buried there.

Came here based on Google reviews so decided to check it out. It is a relatively small cemetery, but very intimate and clean. Beautiful mausoleums and crypts of celebrities made it a surreal experience. aside from the big two (Marilyn Monroe and Hugh Hefner), you’ll also find other celebrities plus the unmarked graves of Roy Orbison and Frank Zappa. Spent an hour here taking photos and also quiet time to pay my respects. Highly recommend if you’re in LA.
What is there to say? it was very difficult to find, it is hidden in the middle of buildings and behind a parking lot and next to a church. There was some construction work going on so the sign to get there was minimally visible. I parked in the street and paid $2 for two hours, I did not stay there two hours, but that's the minimal you can pay, but then I realize that you can just drive into the cemetery and park next to the grave you want to visit, I mean it is open 24 hours so I guess you can go anytime you like, creepy. The place is small and you can find the star you want to visit very easily, I particularly went to see Marilyn Monroe but since I was there I also went to see Dean Martin and Burt Lancaster, there is more stars there, but too much to mention. Overall the place is very nice and peaceful and there was hardly anyone there, I mean the place was empty. If you want to go pay your respects to the great Marilyn, take her some flowers and don't kiss the grave, like some people do, its kinda gross to do that.
