the Crystal Shrine Grotto

Our next stop along our cross country trip was the 
Crystal Shrine Grotto
in Memphis, TN.

This one was literally a stones through from our hotel,
so we stopped in early morning on our way out of town.
Much to my dismay, Memphis has a lot more
to offer than the glitter and glitz of Elvis.

But this was a fantastic alternative.

This amazing man made cave won me over 
when I read that it was located in a cemetery.
The amazing works, that were created in 1935
by Folk Artist Señor Dionicio Rodriguez,
boasted so much mystery and awe. 

The pictures do the religious works absolutely no justice.
This is one that you are going to have to see on your own.

Again, a huge thanks to Road Trippers for helping 
us to discover such hidden gems (pun fully intended).
