On the very brim of the plateau, below the baldachin that is carried by 4 pillars, a stone sarcophagus is laid, on whose upper plaque in the shallow relief are represented symbols of the spiritual and secular governance of bishop Danilo. On the east side of the sarcophagi, in the round medallion a bronze relief of the bishop’s head in the profile is engraved. Up to the mausoleum and the plateau on Orlov krs you can come by car down the asphalted road. From that place an exquisite view on the historical nest of Cetinje is seen.
