History of Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens
Occupying approximately 30 acres, our distinguished facility offers a comforting, convenient and peaceful environment. Established in the 1960s, a magnificent addition was added in 1972, which put Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens on the map as the only indoor mausoleum pyramid in the world outside of Egypt. This well-known pyramid landmark is also home to our spacious funeral chapel. The Shrine of Light Funeral Chapel is the focal point and body of the pyramid. Serving a dual purpose, glass tiling in the ceiling illuminates light throughout the entire interior of the pyramid, gleaming sunlight on more than a 1,000 indoor mausoleum spaces and the funeral home chapel.
Palm trees and lush landscaping surround the exterior area. It features a serene, private family mausoleum, burial, cremation property estates, marble benches, memorial plaques, and private monument estates. We specialize in both funeral and burial services all at one convenient, state-of-the-art location.
