The Zoroastrian Dakhma was a place to leave the dead bodies. The four natural elements in Zoroastrianism are soil, water, fire, and air, and in this religion, it is not permissible to pollute them. So, after each person dies, they take his or her body to a tower of silence or dakhma to return it to nature without polluting the natural elements.
