    How to use "Mausoleum" in context?

    The word "mausoleum" derives from the Latin word meaning "a small tomb or pyramid." A mausoleum is typically an architectural structure, typically large and built for a particular individual, family, or group of people. Mausoleums are often regarded as symbols of wealth and power.

    The first mausoleums were probably built in the area currently known as Egypt during the fourth dynasty, about 2600 BC. This period is known for its splendid and advanced tombs for the pharaohs and their consorts. In the following centuries, mausoleums spread to other parts of the world.
