As well as the thousands of roses, the Great Mausoleum at Los Angeles' Forest Lawn Memorial Park was awash in bouquets, teddy bears, posters and other tributes, the Los Angeles Times reported, with fans in Japan, Italy and Russia among those remembering Jackson, who died aged 50 on June 25, 2009.
Celebrity fans also tweeted their thoughts, with Justin Bieber saying, "RIP to the best that ever did it. RIP to the KING...RIP Michael Jackson. You will never be forgotten."
Usher added, "RIP Michael Jackson -- you will never die in our hearts, your legacy will live on forever!"
Jackson's eldest child, 14-year-old Paris, tweeted, "RIP Michael Jackson ... Dad you will forever be in my heart ... I love you."
Among those who visited the memorial park was Denver-based Jackson impersonator Carlo Riley, who said he planned to spend June 25 every year at the cemetery and added, "Even though he's gone, this is still my passion."
For those who could not be there in person, Los Angeles woman Robyn Starkand led the "One Rose for Michael Jackson" campaign, allowing fans in far-flung states and other countries to be part of the day.
