Singapore Columbarium Niches - State of the Art Facilities

6-Stars Columbarium Niches in Singapore

Columbarium Niches are Safe Burial Spaces Where People’s Cremains Can be Placed

This is similar to a mausoleum because there is normally a wall with compartments so that urns can be placed permanently. The purpose of a columbarium niche is to have a place where the family can visit their departed loved one after they have been created. The sizes of the niches vary which are in singles, doubles, and family sizes. The majority of niches are constructed using premium granite or marble. Some even have a glass covering which allows the visitor to see the urn and anything else that is in there.

 

More About Columbarium Niches

A columbarium has a lot of niches, which are made for holding urns in place. They can be found in mausoleums, chapels, or it can even be a wall or stand-along building located outdoors or indoors. It can also be in a cemetery, but it should only be built on a dedicated property. The word “columbarium” in the modern society is also used for describing mausoleum so you can interchange both terms.

Columbarium niche Assignment
