Elvis Presley has actually had two graves. After the rock-'n'-roll legend died of heart complications in August 1977, he was buried in a mausoleum in Forest Hills Cemetery in Memphis, Tenn. But fans and souvenir seekers frequently tampered with his grave, so Presley and his mother Gladys were moved to their current and so far, final resting place at Graceland. Admission to Elvis' grave is now part of the Graceland tour. The King has been dead for more than three decades, yet 600,000 people a year still visit his mansion in all its gaudy, ornately decorated glory.
Correction: The original version of this story misstated Elvis Presley’s cause of death. It was a heart complication, not a drug overdose.
