Mausoleum, Cemetery, Crypt
The Great Pyramid, The Taj Mahal, The Tomb of King Mausolus, and The City of Tombs all stand as witnesses to greatness. They pay tribute to lives lived, love shared, and sacrifices made. Today, the tradition of honoring family heritage through memorialization continues with the creation of family mausoleums to honor our loved ones.
Looking back in history, we see many architecturally magnificent structures commemorating the memory of those we have loved, honored, and lost. Perhaps no creation of man has so intrigued the imagination than that of the famous Sphinx, which is 140 feet in length and 66 feet high. It was carved on the spot from a natural mass of rock and many claim it was built about 4600 BC.
The name "Mausoleum" was established by the Romans upon seeing the impressive tomb erected at Halicarnassus in the third century before Christ, honoring King Mausolus of a nation then known as Caria (part of Asia Minor today). The tomb was adjudged one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. This architectural influence of the mausoleum has been preserved to the present time.
