Revash was discovered by Arthur Wertheman. The mausoleums resemble small housing and conglomerates of the same ones, forming miniature "villages". For this circumstance and for their emplacement in stacks, Revash's funeral houses show a curious similarity with the cliff-houses of Colorado. But these resemblances are only accidental and the function that was corresponding to both was also different. It can be though that the mausoleums that occupy this region were constructed copying housings, that is to say, they would be part of replies of not funeral architecture of those times, but of which there's no track nowadays. The mausoleums, on the contrary, have survived thanks to the cave that shelters them and protected from the water, and from the man because of its isolation and access difficulty. Overnight Hotel.
