The Shrine of Remembrance was built to commemorate the Victorian men and women who served in WWI.On the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month, sunlight penetrates the aperture on the roof to highlight the word “Love” in remembrance of the hour and day that marked the end of the first world war. The inscription is from the Biblical verse of John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man may lay down his life for his friends”. Free tours of the Shrine and Shrine Reserve are conducted daily.
