Object description:

Photo (scan from slide). A Muslim cemetery outside the city by the road. At the top, you can see the brick part of the tomb. Pitchers lying on the graves indicate cultural syncretism, a combination of elements of Islam and Hinduism in the posthumous rite. The pitcher is one of the artifacts derived from Hindu imaginations and is associated with feeding the souls of the dead. The Ishmaelite deceased are buried in the cemetery, which testifies to the great variety of forms of worship in India and the acculturation processes taking place in the borderlands.
