    Grant's Tomb is the largest Mausoleum in the world and the Rolling Bench, was designed by artist Pedro Silva and architect Philip Danzig, and built with hundreds of children over a 3 year period.

    The rotunda houses the general AND his wife. This place rates high just for the granite and marble architecture alone. In the summer look for a multiple of cultural events on the plaza

    Construction began in 1891 and was completed by April 27, 1897, the 75th anniversary of Grant's birth. His Civil War counterpart, General Robert E. Lee, is buried at Lee Chapel in Lexington, Virginia.

    Just behind the monument, you can find a plague and ginkgo tree on behalf of Li Hung Chang. That indicates the struggles of Chinese government in search of the modern China more than one century ago.

    There are tours, where you're allowed to go downstairs, closer to the caskets, a couple times a day. No fee.
