Bishop Danilo's mausoleum at Eagle Hill

.

.

Mausoleum at Eagle Hill (Orlov krš), dedicated to Montenegrin bishop Danilo Petrovic, was erected in 1896 to celebrate the Bicentennial of dynasty Petrovic Njegos. As stated in the "Voice of Montenegrin" of 6 October of the same year, the project has been completed, "according to the draft of Her Majesty princess Jelena and by effort  of engineer Radovic." In the historical sources also states that in the project participated French architect Frushe and sculptor Votier.

   

This dominant point above Cetinje monastery has been for decades a favorite local route and tourist attraction, providing a look at the old Montenegrin capital and Lovcen mountain range.

  

This place was interesting in the more distant past, as evidenced by the fact that in the late seventies and early eighties of the 20th century in its immediate vicinity were found fragments of old pottery, preserved by the National Museum of Montenegro.

  

With the entry into force of the Statute of the National Museum of Montenegro from the 2012, this monumental complex of great importance which has been declared cultural monument in 1957 (Decision no. 1083/1-57), became part of the Historical Museum of Montenegro together with two similar architectural units - Njegoš mausoleum on Lovcen and Cipur Court Church.
