The Zorastrians or Parsis as they are commonly known in India believe that to use any of the four elements (fire, earth, air,water) to get rid of the dead is to pollute it. The Tower of Silence is a set of concentric rings surrounding a well where the bodies of the deceased are laid out to be consumed by vultures! The remaining bodily fluids drain into the well.
