The Shrine of Remembrance is Melbourne's largest war memorial and stands proudly on top of a little hill on Birdwood Avenue. The building was built to commemorate and honour those who served in the First World War and the community. As you walk towards the Shrine of Remembrance, it's dawning beauty magnifies and reminds me of something from Hercules. Perhaps this can't be compared to the architecture you can get in European countries, but still, it is pretty majestic. You walk up the stairs towards the entrance surrounded by a beautiful courtyard. Once at the top, you turn around to have a view of Melbourne city sitting right in front of you. A view of the city, right next to the city.
