Elvis Presley's crypt has left the auction block.

The auctioneer said yesterday that his company has agreed not to sell the crypt after fans worldwide demanded that it be kept as a shrine to his memory.

The auction house announced in May that it would sell the empty tomb at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tenn., at its "Music Icons" auction Sunday.

Elvis was interred there alongside his mother, Gladys, after he died Aug. 16, 1977.

Two months later, they were reburied at his Graceland home.

The original crypt has remained empty ever since.
