This is a history of memorial monuments which systematically traces the origin and phased development of the concept. The book Memorial Monuments in Ancient and Medieval India deals exhaustively with the various influences which have brought out substantial changes in the concept and also in its execution.
The Aryans and before them the people of Indus Valley had their own system of funeral which later on underwent substantial modifications and reform, when these people came in direct contact with the aboriginal people who had been inhabitating the land since time immemorial. This intermingling of racial traits gave rise to a process of cultural assimilation which ultimately resulted in the change in outlook.
