The Benefits of a Mausoleum

 Mausoleum

A mausoleum is an external, free-standing building. It is constructed as a monument enclosing the burial chamber of a deceased person or people. Burial in a mausoleum has traditionally been the choice of royalty and the rich. However, it has now become a popular choice. The idea is attractive to people who are uncomfortable with the idea of being buried in the ground and prefer burial in an environment protected from the elements. Below are some benefits of constructing a mausoleum:

  • It is cleaner and dryer than a traditional underground burial.
  • It is a good option for people who do not want to be cremated, or who are uncomfortable with the idea of being buried underground.
  • It reduces the amount of land that is used for a burial, making it more ecologically friendly than an underground burial.
  • It allows people to visit their loved ones any time of the year because the crypts are protected from inclement weather, unlike traditional graves in a cemetery.
  • There is an option to add appropriate background music and convenient benches for visitors to sit comfortably and reflect about their loved ones.
  • It is an opportunity to purchase a family mausoleum where all members of the family can be entombed together. It makes the option of entombment cost effective.
  • Extreme weather conditions and lack of proper equipment may make burial difficult in some areas. There problems are eliminated if you choose a mausoleum.
  • Only when the entire fabrication and construction of a mausoleum is of 100% premium grade granite will its beauty and construction last for generations to come.

3 New Trends in Modern Mausoleum Construction

A mausoleum is an external free-standing building that is constructed as a monument to enclose the interment space or burial chamber of a deceased person or people. When people think about a mausoleum, they picture a dilapidated building in a mystical Gothic style—the kind of building found in a tourist brochure. While there is plenty to appreciate about the style of old and historically significant mausoleums, and some people may prefer modern mausoleums, the mausoleums built today offer a wider array of options than ever before.

The following are the three trends of modern mausoleums that reflect individuality, social responsibility and luxury, even in death.

Mausoleums with Modern Art and Architecture

Many Mausoleums built today are indistinguishable from other modern buildings. These mausoleums look like art museums or even installations with clean lines and minimalist designs.

Customization and Personalization

Mausoleums built in the past were solemn and stone-cold structures. However, in today’s day and age people want customized and personalized mausoleums. Many families prefer a private mausoleum instead of a public mausoleum because of the option of customization. In a customized and personalized mausoleum, the interior as well as its exterior, are constructed to reflect the tastes of the deceased and his or her family.

Eco-conscious Mausoleums

Funerals and cremations are becoming more eco-friendly, which means mausoleums will as well. Even though mausoleums require construction, designers are exploring new ways to make them more eco-friendly. One way to create a eco-friendly mausoleum is by constructing an “open-air” mausoleum, or a gazebo-like structure in a park or garden. Mausoleums can also be used as a renewable energy source.
