Rotunda of the Illustrious Jaliscienses in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico is a monument erected in the honor of the many famous and illustrious personas hailing from the state of Jalisco.
The rotunda, housed inside a little park located next to the Guadalajara Cathedral, is a circle of seventeen Doric columns. Urns containing the ashes of many honored dead, among them artists, writers, educationists and revolutionaries, are placed inside the rotunda and there are even empty urns awaiting their future occupants!
Also, beneath the floor of the rotunda, there is a crypt containing the mummified remains of the famous nationalist, war hero and reformer General Ramon Corona.
Further, the rotunda is ringed with bronze statues of many Jaliscan luminaries. In all, it is a great site to get a quick dip in the history of the region. The park remains open round the hour.Places nearby:
