Row of small cenotaphs on a road side near a tree (India)

Cenotaphs are "empty tombs" or monuments erected in honour of a person or group of people whose remains are elsewhere. Most Hindu people are cremated and their ashes are scattered, so they have no tombs.

For more information about cenotaphs, read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenotaph.
