What is Columbarium?

  A columbarium is a permanent resting place for cremated remains. Columbarium is a Latin word for dovecote or nesting place for doves. The dove of peace, has been associated with the Resurrection. Early Christians in Rome used the term to describe the catacombs where they not only interred their dead but also sought refuge and shelter for worship during times of prosecution. In a columbarium, cremated remains of the human body are placed in wall-recessed compartments called niches.
