Default sky burial

Just for a common knowledge:
The sky burial is not unique Tibetan tradition.
The Zoroastrian religion stil exist in Iran Pakistan and India have “dakhmas” translated as "tower of silence" where they put dead bodies for the vultures to eat them. I will not be surprised to know that even Indira-Gandi’s husband’s body was disposed that way.
Silent tower can be seen even in the best part of Mumbai.
