In this post, we shall talk about the real reminiscences of love, which have been to a large extent, forgotten by us, and at times, some were on the verge of getting destroyed.

  1. Ram – Setu – We all know about the love of our Lord Rama for Sita Ji. Ram-Setu is a living legend of that. According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, Ram-Setu is 48 kms long. Reports from HTDeccan ChronicleBusiness Standard confirm that the bridge is man-made and as old as 18,400 years. The timelines sync with what has already been mentioned in our epics. But just a few years ago, in 2007, it was on the verge of getting destroyed. A project named Setusamudram. The DMK under the leadership of Karunanidhi (a hard core Hindu hater) got the Central’s approval to built a huge ship yard in the Ram Setu region saying it will shorten the distance for ships. And at the last moment, it was saved by Mr. Subramanian Swamy.

2. Rani-ki-Vav, Patan, Gujarat – It is an exemplary beautiful step-well located on the banks of Saraswati river in Patan, Gujarat, and is listed as a UNESCO’s world heritage sites since 2014. It was built in the memory of King Bhima I (r. c. 1022 – 1064) by his queen Rani Udayamati, daughter of Khengara of Saurashtra and queen of the 11th-century Chalukya dynasty.

3. Virupaksha Temple, Pattadakal, Karnataka – As per Indian govt archives, this temple was built by Queen Lokamahadevi during 7th-8th Centuries. The temple was built by the queen to commemorate the victory of her husband King Vikramaditya II over the Pallava rulers.
