Mausoleo de los Veteranos de la Revolucion

Isa sa mga bucketlist ko ngaun taon ay makapunta ulit sa mga dati kung napuntahan noong bata pa ako at isa na dito ang Manila North Cementery, di dahil may dadalawin ako kung di para sa isang msaya at exciting na photowalk kasama ang Powerhouse G5 at Heritage Lakwatsero.

Isa sa mga main suject ko sa North Cementery ay ang Mausoleo de los Veteranos de la Revolucion o mas kilala bilang Mausoleum for the Revolution Veterans.

Anu nga ba ang kasaysayan ng Mausoleo de los Veteranos de la Revolucion at Sinu ang gumawa ng Mausoleo na ito?

Ayon sa kasaysayan. " It was meant to be the pantheon to the heroes of the Revolution, built under the auspices of the Veteranos de la Revolucion, the organization headed by General Emilio Aguinaldo. For many decades it contained the tombs of many notables but over recent decades, many of these remains have been transferred elsewhere. It remains a National Shrine, and is a favorite structure of occultists who note the many Masonic and other symbols embedded in its architecture.

Designed by Filipino architect Arcadio Arellano, in the unique Hispano-Filipino-American art style popular during the early 20th century. The memorial was inaugurated in 1920. Generals Mariano Noriel, Licerio Geronimo, Tomas Arguelles, and Pio del Pilar's remains are included among the many veteranos who were interred here."
