Love’s Monument, India


SKU: loves_monument_india Categories: , Tag:


I believe there are but few poets who can sum up the Taj Mahal’s beauty. It is so striking when you first feast upon it through the entrance of the North Gate. It’s as if it lay on canvas, a creation from a master’s brush strokes. It really is a magnificent work of art. It’s breathtaking. The entire monument is adorned with semiprecious gems embedded in it’s marble. Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan, onyx from Mongolia, coral from Tibet, seashells from Sri Lanka and New Zealand, malachite from Zambia are just several of the stones that are decoratively befitted into the Taj Mahal. The 15th century emperor’s wife had complications during the birth of her 14th child and passed soon after. The king fulfilled his promise to her to build a monument in her name so that she would be remembered for all of time. They now both rest assuredly in the belly of the monument we have all come to know as the greatest building ever assembled in the name of love.
