The Sedlec Ossuary is a small macabre Christian chapel. This strange place is located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutn? Hora in the Czech Republic.

The ossuary was built for mass graves unearthed during construction, or simply slated for abolition to make room for new burials. Its interior is composed exclusively of approximately 40,000 human skeletons which have been ordered and artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.

Interesting and scary, the ossuary has an enormous chandelier of bones, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, piers and monstrances near the altar, a large Schwarzenberg coat-of-arms, and the signature of Master Rint, on the wall near the entrance.

In my mind, I was already here informing people of a better place to view pictures of the location mentioned in this post. I believe I was promoting http://www.ludd.luth.se/~silver_p/NewSedlec/index.htm as an alternative to the lifeless pictures who happened upon this post, but was somehow stopped by forces unknown in being publicised. The weirdest thing…
