The mausoleum of former Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi went viral a few days ago (see previous thread here https://www.nairaland.com/6119045/senator-abiola-ajimobis-air-conditioned-grave) and so I decided to take a look at the mausoleums of other famous Nigerians.

Pictures of mausoleums of famous Nigerians.


A mausoleum is a building or structure that contains the tomb of a notable public figure. It is usually designed in such a way that followers, fans and associates of the person can visit the tomb. That's the reason that it has amenities like chairs and air conditioners.

In some countries it is customary that visiting heads of state and other such dignitaries visit the mausoleum of their former leaders and lay wreathes at their tombs.

Some mausoleums are part of a museum or library that contains material about the deceased person and tourists are allowed to visit the mausoleum for a fee.


President Nnamdi Azikiwe died in 1997 and the Federal Government promised to build a mausoleum for him. Unfortunately the mausoleum was not completed until 2018.

The mausoleum of Chief Obafemi Awolowo. This is the first mausoleum that I saw in Nigeria. Chief Awolowo died in 1987.




The former prime minister of Nigeria, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa was a very simple man and he thought that he would have a very simple grave when he died, but the Federal Government built a mausoleum for him.

The interior of the mausoleum is actually very simple. The main reason that I'm posting pictures of his mausoleum is so that you can see what I mean when I saw that the mausoleum can also serve as a library or museum. In the third picture you can see the items that Tafawa Balewa used when he was alive.

Tafawa Balewa's tomb in the mausoleum.





The museum. You can see Balewa's radio, bed and other items.

Other mausoleums around the world.

The most famous mausoleum in the world is the Taj Mahal.

The Taj Mahal, burial place of the favourite wife of a Mughal emperor.



The Pyramids in Egypt can be considered to be a kind of mausoleum. It is the resting place of the pharaohs of Egypt.

Pope Francis visits the mausoleum of Hassan II, the former king of Morocco.




The supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, visits the mausoleum of the former supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini.





The mausoleum of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert at the Royal Cemetery at Frogmore.

The Lenin Mausoleum at the Red Square in Moscow was one of the most famous mausoleums when I was a kid. You can actually see Lenin's preserved body.

Respect to Nnamdi Azikwe and Chief Awolowo.
The labours of our past leaders shall never be in vain.


KenModi:
You do know they were after their own personal gains and weren’t interested in future generation, hence their so-called “fight for independence”?
Your opinion is noted and trash into the dustbin Ken.

Dead people's tomb is still more valuable than a living man's place of abode. This life no balance at all.
