Our cemetery in Semenyih, Selangor in Malaysia is our first and largest cemetery. It is one of the largest cemeteries in Asia in terms of area. As of June 30, 2014, our Semenyih cemetery covered 2.6 million square meters, of which approximately 143,000 square meters were available for sale and approximately 667,000 square meters were available for future development.
Since we opened this cemetery in 1990, we have been acquiring and developing adjacent land and cooperating with owners of adjacent land, and the size of this cemetery has grown from 202,343 square meters to 2.6 million square meters. We had 7,669 double burial plots equivalent available for sale and 35,901 double burial plots equivalent available for future development.
We also operate columbarium facilities at our cemetery in Semenyih. As of June 30, 2014, we had over 22,000 double niches equivalent, including approximately 8,000 available for sale and approximately 14,000 under development. We intend to continue to acquire additional land adjacent to our current Semenyih facility in order to expand the capacity of this facility
We began operations at our Shah Alam cemetery in 2007. As of June 30, 2014, our cemetery in Shah Alam covered over 105,000 square meters, all of which had been developed or was under development. We had 539 double burial plots equivalent available for sale, covering an area of approximately 10,000 square meters, and over 17,734 double niches equivalent available for sale and 29,902 double niches equivalent under development. We regard the Shah Alam cemetery as our foremost premium cemetery given its proximity to downtown Kuala Lumpur, its beautiful design and its landscaping.
Our Shah Alam cemetery was awarded a Malaysia Landscape Architects Award of 2013 by the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (Ilam). In addition, as our Shah Alam cemetery has in-house crematorium facilities, we are able to provide on-site cremation services, which is convenient to customers.
