For security reasons, Vernon Presley, with special permission from the city, had the grave sights of Elvis and his
mother Gladys moved from Forrest Hill Cemetery to Graceland in October of 1977. Since then the garden has
become the final resting place for Elvis's father and paternal grandmother as well. A small marker has been placed
in memory of Elvis's stillborn twin brother. The large marble cross was Glady's Presleys only monument. The statue
of Jesus with outstretched arms was a gift to Elvis from his friends, one Christmas. The Meditation Garden
was designed and built by Bernard Granadier at Elvis's request in the mid 1960's. It features Italian statues,
an elaborate fountain and special lighting. The brick wall behind the Grecian inspired columns is inlaid
with primitive stained glass handmade in Spain in the mid 1800's. The garden offered Elvis a private,
serene area for meditation, reflection and quiet contemplation.
It was one of his favorite places.
