In his will he requested that he be played in the ground upon his death, however, he was embalmed instead. The government planned to bury him after the funeral, but the Russian people wanted otherwise. They apparently received over 10,000 telegrams from grieving Russian people asking that his body be preserved and placed where people could see it so that generations to come could know of the great Russian leader. You can know go and see his body on display and pay respects to him as the people wanted.
