Rookwood, Russian Memorial

A view from inside the Russian Memorial in Rookwood Necropolis, in the western suburb of Rookwood. It was built by Michael Bakich and the inscription reads: In memory of all Russian Orthodox people resting in peace throughout the world. Memorial consecrated by Archbishop Theodosy 7th May 1978. 


  1. I've come across some Russian Orthodox graves in some of the cemetery's I have visited

  2. Beautiful memorial against a wonderful sky!

  3. Stark against the sky. I wonder whether this is the Russian Orthodox equivalent of the unknown soldier's grave. I did my high school years at Strathfield and there was a large Russian Orthodox community there. Your photo has made me wonder what happened to the girls that were in my year.

  4. It is fantastic, wonderful!!!!!
    Jim excellent picture.
