Feels a bit strange to rate a persons grave site. However, if you are a fan or simply respect Jimi's contribution to music, definitely stop by. The family has made his final resting place unique, respectful and beautiful. The design is amazing. We took a red rose to leave behind. After all, this is a cemetery.

What a great place to visit! My friends can't get enough of the famous Jimi Hendrix memorial. It is a must see if you are in the Renton Highlands.

This was a pilgrimage to an amazing musicians memorial however the parking is restricted. It was peaceful and captured his spirit.

This was very moving. I didn't expect it to be so lavish. There is also a room dedicated to Hendrix and you can sign the book or remembrance. The graveyard contained other interesting graves.

I never saw Hendrix play live, one of my great regrets. But standing here at his graveside is really moving. It's peaceful and very tasteful. In the half hour we were there on a wet day there were two other families came to view it. And young kids as well!! Inside the chapel there is a room dedicated to Jimi... More

This gravesite is truly a testimony to how popular Jimi was and still is. It is very tastefully done without being garish. My husband was impresed with the pictures and writings that were engraved but would also have liked to see a statue of Jimi. This is definitely a place to go for Hendrix fans that want to pay their... More

It is a bit weird to rate a grave/memorial. But this is a beautiful memorial for the guitar legend! Seems to be pretty popular, too. Purple haze!

Interesting grave in a nondescript cemetery....Nice place to spend 30 mins or so, several sculptures on Jim's grave and lyrics to a few of his tunes.

I used to take out of town guests who were fans to his gravesite. Back then it was just a muddy little plot with a standard size marker with a guitar engraved on it. I often wondered why his grave was so insignificant due to his contribution to the music world. Well he finally has the tribute he deserves! This... More

Built just off 4th Ave in Renton Highlands. Large memorial, that you can just walk around or sit and thing about Jimi's music.
