about tower of silence

The name ' Tower of Silence' was coined by a Britisher named Robert Murphy in 1832. Even though this place in Mumbai is not open for public, you can still catch a glimpse of it from the Hanging Gardens. A sacred resting place for the Parsis, it is used for offering the dead ones to the scavengers. They do so as they believe that the dead body is unclean and a potential pollutant, so it should be disposed as safely as possible.
