Garuda is the vehicle of Lord Vishnu. Garuda puran comes under Vaishnava puran. This Purana deals with specific issues of Hindu philosophy connected with death, funeral, rites and reincarnation. According to this book, the concept of heaven and hell are not quite the same as what we imagine them to be in popular culture today. It also includes chapters on the architecture and design of a temple. The Garuda Purana also describes 14 gems, their varieties and how to test their quality.
Garuda, the divine King of Birds and the vehicle of Lord Shri Vishnu once had a detailed conversation with his Lord, Shri Vishnu about what happens during and after death.
So Shri Vishnu tells Garuda in detail what happens when a person dies, what punishments he will suffer (if he did bad things while alive) and what pleasures will he enjoy (if he did good things while alive), and what ceremonies have to be performed by the son of the deceased.
