K V Paradise: The Taj Mahal of Mizoram – By Dipalay Dey From Assam

“Having spent 18 years in Mizoram, Aizawl holds a very special place in my heart and the city continues to mesmerize me. There are many wonders situated around this beautiful capital city and one of them is the “K V Paradise”. K V Paradise is a symbol of love and affection which was built by a loving husband in memory of his beloved wife.

On my last visit to Aizawl, I had planned to explore this beauty to see the richness of love that the monument holds. We all know about “Taj Mahal” which is considered the symbol of love by many. K V Paradise is also considered as Taj Mahal of Mizoram and it symbolizes love as well.

KV paradise, a monument of love, which was built by a loving husband in memory of his beloved wife.

Situated at a hilltop in Durtlang near Aizawl city (approximately 10 kms away from city), K V paradise was built in the memory of Mrs. Rosangpui Varte who died in a tragic road accident in 2001. The monument was completed around the year 2006 and it’s a two-storey structure where the ground floor contains the erected memorial along with a huge painting of Mrs. Varte and the upper floor contains a gallery where accessories of Mrs. Varte like her footwear, dresses and photographs depicting various phases for her life are kept. Even the photos of her marriage to her husband Mr. Khawlhring are displayed here. 

Visiting something like this is always memorable. Although this monument is yet to get its proper recognition but it has already set a new milestone for the Northeast of India. Hope to see more and more people visiting this place in the near future and let it spread the message of love and affection.
