Lenin's Mausoleum Moscow

There has been this tradition of preserving human’s body in some parts of the world. This is especially true in Egypt. The idea of keeping Lenin's body has echoes of the ancient pyramids. There was a belief of afterlife in Egypt and it was combined with their knowledge of embalming techniques. This enabled the Egyptians to construct pyramids to immortalize their rulers. The Soviet government in this case also followed the same belief probably and that is why they thought of preserving Lenin’s body which led to creation of Lenin’s tomb. Doing so was an attempt of immortalizing Lenin. Lenin died in 1924 and then government thought to preserve the body of this renowned and revolutionary leader. Lenin’s body is preserved in the tomb which is situated in Red Square in Moscow, Russia. The tomb is a resting place for Lenin. Since 1924 the preserved body of Lenin is here and on public display. Lenin’s body has been placed in a glass sarcophagus, and thousands of visitors come here every day to to see it. The preservation mechanism also is superb. When there was an issue of dark spots on the skin in the embalmed process, they solved the problem by using different reagents in between baths. So far the funds have been arranged either by Government or public to preserve the body. And recently in 2016 Russian Government planned to spend millions of rubels (Russian Currency) to preserve the Lenin’s body.
