09 May 2010 - Hamilton Mausoleum

I was intrigued by this building. I liked it's simple shape. It's also alot bigger than you imagine. Such a pity they had to fence it off because the vandals kept spray painting it. Typical eh?

It's the burial place of the Duke of Hamilton who obviously wasn't going to be satisfied with your standard headstone.

We never got to go inside it but apparently inside the chapel two people can stand at either end of one of the curved interior walls, facing away from each other into the niche of the wall, and hold a whispered conversation. Such are the great acoustics of the place.
