In this Paper, the compressive strength and geological characteristics of stones from different locations have been experimentally studied. Sixteen types of stones brought from different locations have been considered in this study. The compressive strength and shear bond strength of each stone has been determined through masonry prisms. The masonry prisms of each stone are constructed using soil cement mortars. Both 1:3 and 1:6 cement soil mortar has been tried.
