dc.descriptionSamadhi is a Sanskrit/Hindi word for cenotaph, a structure commemorating the dead akin to a tomb, but without remains. Given the profusion of Muslim tombs in Hyderabad, the Marwari moneylender Seth Puranmal Ganeriwal, who flourished in the first half of the 19th century built a domed pavilion approached by an open stairway, resembling an Islamic tomb, though cremation, not burial is the norm among upper caste Hindus.en_US
