Monumental architecture is unique to cities because it is a representation of some part of their heritage that will legally be preserved forever. The monuments that were developed and built by man were a symbol of power and wealth. The heads of that state ordered the lower class to do the labor of building the monuments as they sat back and delegated the task and provided the resources to perform the labor. Since most states were stratified societies the laborers had to depend on the provisions given to them to survive (Nowak & Laird, 2010).
