entrance is free,a great way to showcase National heroes.The building itself is impressive and it's "on the way" to other sights.

Modern feel to a solemn place where political VIPS are resting, including dictators. Visit does not take a lot of time, which makes it nice.

Take a guided tour or the history of this visit will be lost to you. The guard changing and movement was very interesting. Happens on the half hour.

Nice architecture and a small site which houses the remains of DR's heroes. There is a guard in the front and a small lamp burning all the time. Wish they had English language signs or an audio guide available to follow along.
