A memorial ossuary for the remains of the deceased of Islamic religion

The above-ground part has the form of a square octagonal prism. The underground part is a chamber for remains of about 10 m³. In the memorial ossuary there are "male" and the "female" Muslim gravestones.

Segments of the circle bordering the ossuary are covered with scattered river pebbles. The surrounding area is arranged as a lawn without high vegetation, ornamental greenery and flowers.

There are nine irregularly arranged stones that symbolize the destiny of people whose remains will be permanently saved in the ossuary.
