Collection(s)The mausoleum stands to the north - west of the town of Panciu (about 27 km). The monument shelters the remains of the Romanian soldiers fallen during World War I in the battle of Mărăşti (July 1917). At the entrance to the village, a gate resembling a triumph arch reads "Historic Field of Mărăşeşti". To glorify the heroism of the Romanian soldiers, a mausoleum was raised on the initiative of the officers and generals of the 2nd Romanian Army, who lay the foundation of the " Mărăşeşti Society". The mausoleum was raised at the height 536, where they waged the battles. The building was designed by the architect Pandele Şerbănescu and decorated with bas-reliefs by the sculptor A. Bordenache. The pavement shelters the sarcophagi with the remains of generals Alexandru Averescu, Arthur Văitoianu, Alexandru Mărgineanu and Nicolae Arghirescu. In the pavement there is a small museum presenting objects that belonged to general Văitoianu and weapons from World War I. On the facade of the monument 15 white marble plaques were laid reading the names of the regiments and soldiers who took part in the battles waged on these places.
