This report is prepared to discuss on the conceptual design of Islamic cemetery being practiced in Malaysia. Presently, it can be seen that most of the Islamic cemetery estates in Malaysia are facing many issues from the perspectives of management, design, build and maintenance. Based on theseissues, this study is conducted in order to establish a holistic Cemetery Management Syetem (CMS) with a better design and systematic approach for the Muslims deceased. The desgin is explained conceptually with the integration of Technology Park Concept (TPC) using the latest technology for the Muslim cemetery design and facilities. The study is conducted at Lot 1461, Batu 52 % Road, Johor, District of Kluang, Johor. The layout system and landscape of the cemetery were enhanced by integrating the existing National Guidelines of Town and Country Planning in Malaysia with the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. Interviews were conducted with respondents consist of cemetery supervisors and officials from the Department of Islamic Religious, Batu Pahat.Discussion were also made to ensure that there are no contradictions in the process of designing the proposed cemetery layout design. The proposed cemetery design suggested that it can accommodate up to 2000 burial plots with addition of newly equipped office buildings, parking, landscaping areas, gazebos, walkways and ornamental trees. Overall, the layout design can accommodate burial plots for up to 25 years. This concept can be modelled by the other private cemetery providers, implementing agencies, developers for the public as a guidance in selecting, designing, developing and managing the burial site
