I remember an earlier discussion about the design of old Nasrani tombs. There was an argument that old tombs did not have the cross or the symbol of the cross. I agree to that view. I think the idea of a gravestone is Western.
I found an old tomb in Punnakad Mar Thoma Church. It looks quite similar to the tomb of the Archdeacons.
Any idea how I can post the picture in the forum?
