How Michael Jackson's Grave Looks Like 12 Years After His Burial (Photos)

On numerous occasions, Michael Jackson was dubbed the "King of Pop." As a child, he rose to prominence as a member of the Jackson 5 alongside his brother. He established himself as an adult soul and pop star with the album Off the Wall, which was followed by Thriller, the best-selling album of all time.

His music straddled the genres of pop, soul, dance, and rock. Michael Jackson received 15 Grammy Awards and is estimated to have sold more than 350 million albums worldwide.

On June 25, 2009, he died as a result of a fatal combination of prescription drugs, leaving millions of fans devastated around the world. He died of cardiac arrest three weeks before his scheduled return to the stage at the age of 50.

He left three children behind, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, who were twelve, eleven, and seven years old at the time.

But where was Michael Jackson laid to rest?

Jackson was laid to rest in the Holly Terrace Grand Mausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park. The burial ground is five miles from Hollywood in Glendale, North Los Angeles.

Jackson's family was so concerned about his body that they had his coffin encased in concrete after his death.

He was buried in full stage costume, alongside musical mementos such as his iconic white gloves.

Visitors must show identification to enter the area where Jackson is buried, which is off-limits to the public and surrounded by high walls.

CCTV cameras linked to sensors are installed around his grave, triggering an alarm to notify security guards of any intruders.

After twelve years, here are some photos of his final resting place;
