Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gigi were laid to rest side-by-side in a family plot that is surrounding by beautiful purple and yellow flowers, the color of his team the Los Angeles Lakers.

The burial site is at the Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar, California which is very close to the Bryant family home.

It is reported, the large plot is at the very top of the cemetery and looks directly down onto the Newport Coast area which is where the Bryant family has their home.

Surrounding the two gravesites are newly planted purple and yellow flowers, and several Valentine's day balloons and a bunch of colorful pinwheels. The pinwheels signify the tragic loss of a child.

In pictures of the area, obtained by Dailymail, you can see the area where the two are laid to rest is surrounded by a 4-foot wall and has its own gate which can be locked.

The outlet says the unmarked headstones are surrounded by heart-shaped rosary, signifying the family Catholic beliefs. Also, there is another famous person laid to rest nearby, John Wayne.

As we reported, the family held a private service for family and friends last Friday at the Pacific View Mortuary. But, a public memorial will be held at Staple's Center on February 24, 2020.The date is significant for the second month of the year (Gigi's number) the 24th day (Kobe's number) and 20 the number of years he played for the Lakers.

It's unclear if the gravesite will be a place where fans of the NBA legend will be able to visit to pay their respects, or if it will be strictly for family members.
