Shodeleth, in Hindu mythology, is a place in the vicinity of every city where the dead are burned. It always contains a stone representing king Aritshandra, who was at one time overseer of such a place, and in that position denied to his own son the honor of being burned because the boy's mother was unable to pay the small sum exacted in return for that privilege. This pious action so moved the gods that they restored the king to his former honors, from which he had been degraded in order that his disposition might be put to the proof.
