Technically, Muslims are not supposed to be buried in tombs. They are supposed to be washed, wrapped in cotton cloth and buried in an unmarked grave in the desert. Obviously, aside from the obvious fact that authorities would find it extremely aggravating to be digging up unidentified bodies in the desert, unmarked graves are pretty hard to handle for many people. Egyptians have a very long history with tombs, but they have scaled down some since the New Kingdom. This lovely blue garden is a family tomb next to the desert near Giza.
