How is love represented in Hindu architecture?

Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.

There were Temples dedicated to Love; Let us remember the Temple of Venus, in the august Rome of the Caesars; Let us remember the Temple of the Moon in ancient Chaldea, let us remember, I say, the Sacred Temples of India, where that which is called “Love” was worshiped...

Samael Aun Weor. Excerpt from the book: The Miracle of Love.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".

In Hindu architecture, women are represented by the monument to love, the beautiful Taj Mahal, built on the south side of the Yamuna River, by a man who knew love, the emperor (Sajaj Sajan) Shah Jahan, a construction he made in honor his beloved wife (Muntaj Mahal) Mumtaz Mahal, who died while giving birth to their fourteenth child.

And love is capable of all sacrifices and inspires great works that, as documents in stone, among other materials, have left the world great guidance in that sense.
