This Gratto is located in the Memorial Park Cemetery. It is free to visit. The crystals are beautiful. It is a peaceful way to spend some time and to just relax.

Man made grotto/cave in the heart of a cemetery. Crystal rock covers the interior with displays of the life of Jesus. Not crowded at all, we went on a summer Saturday and only a few other visitors were there.

My husband, children and I stopped by here on our way through Memphis. So glad we did, it was gorgeous, my children loved walking through the caves and exploring outside. Great place for a quick break.

Outside was pretty, had places to sit and relax, pond was filled with Koi. Inside was a bit dated and dusty. Okay for a quick look.

This was a really cool hidden gem! Walking through the shrine was beautiful and spiritual. The pond with coy fish was neat too.

Y'all... This was so much cooler than I ever imagined. I was a little nervous, because I had my aunt and uncle with me, but they loved it, too! We even stopped and meditated on the way out. I wish there was more information on...More

Stopped with my teenage daughter who likes folk art and this did not disappoint. Religious and lots of concrete, it is quite the place. Lighting is a little eerie and lots of crystals are cemented in all over. We both enjoyed it

There isn’t really a parking area, but you could park on the side. It only really took us maybe 20 minutes tops to look at everything.
