Underwater mausoleum of cremated remains Neptune Memorial Reef
Called also Atlantis Memorial Reef, it is 5 miles east of Key Biscayne, Miami, Florida. Meanwhile, Neptune Memorial Reef has begun to resemble Atlantis, with its bronze statues of lions, majestic columns and sculptures of shells and starfish. In addition, it is the largest artificial reef in the world, occupying 65,000 square meters on the ocean floor at a depth of 12 meters.
So, instead of waving the ashes of their loved ones over the ocean, now the Americans “finally give” it to the Neptune Memorial Reef. Here the ashes – mixed with cement, built for underwater use, and then added to the reef. Then, next to the structure, made of dust, placed a bronze or copper tiles, and friends of the deceased take photos of the installation process, for the memory. Initially, the project had to be a copy of the “Lost City of Atlantis”. However, they found a better goal to become the world’s first underwater cemetery and memorial park.
