The Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance
A point for those who have not seen our Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne. One of the most beautiful aspects of this commemoration is its location. The service in the interior of the Shrine is added too by the classically inspired columns and motifs. The design of the Shrine was based on the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the seven wonders of the classical world. For a history of the Shrine in Melbourne read Professor Bruce Scates' excellent book A Place to Remember - A History of the Shrine of Remembrance.
