Overview

Between 1822-1854, the crypt in St. Pancras Church was used to bury the remains of the deceased since the burial grounds were getting too congested. However, 557 burials later the crypt was closed and reopened again in 2002, but this time in the new avatar of an art gallery. Needless to say, the atmosphere is surreal and reminds one of life's transience. Every piece of art stirs your imagination while pillars of sculpted females known as caryatids, watch on lovingly.
