Holy Sepulcher is a beautiful garden crypt complex that contains 16,000 crypt spaces and multiple buildings arranged in a symmetrical fashion. The main feature is an architectural crown made from structural steel and clad in stainless steel. The cylinder was erected on temporary shoring to hold it in place while the spokes holding it up were assembled and welded into place. The entire structure was clad in stainless steel giving it a brilliant appearance. Additionally, a 25-30 foot stainless steel cross was attached to the center point of the crown. The crown can be seen from the adjacent toll way and is a well-known landmark to the residents of the area. At night when the crown is lit, it is visually breathtaking.
