A mausoleum is a building surrounding one or more tombs. It can be very grand such as the Taj Mahal in India, or more humble like the ones found in many cemeteries around the world. Additionally, sometimes people store their loved ones’ bones or urn with cremated ashes in a mausoleum. A mausoleum may also include underground vaults, or crypts.
