So those aren't steps? That's where the bodies go?

Yes, Matt, that's where one rests eternally, as close to Utopia as one can get.

This project has been subject to criticism in the past, but I don't see anything wrong with it at all.

The monolith is somewhat overbearing, but the treatment of the tombs cascading down the slope is intriguing. The tombs in each section appear to either decrease in length as they ascend, or are symmetrical and canted away from the center steps. No matter, this subtle "fan" effect is an effective way of softening and minimizing what otherwise could appear to be quite rigid for the intended purpose.
