The ossuary was built for mass graves unearthed during construction, or simply slated for abolition to make room for new burials. Its interior is composed exclusively of approximately 40,000 human skeletons which have been ordered and artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.

Interesting and scary, the ossuary has an enormous chandelier of bones, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, piers and monstrances near the altar, a large Schwarzenberg coat-of-arms, and the signature of Master Rint, on the wall near the entrance.
