This is the incredible Taal Monument on the mountain in Paarl in the Western Cape. This is an abstract side view of the monument not the usual front view that you always tend to see documented. From the monument you have an exquisite view of the entire Paarl Valley. There is also a lot to view at the monument which includes a museum, indigenous plants and a restaurant with a craft shop for a bite to eat. On this particular day the sun was out and the sky was blue. This is an incredible place to visit and spend an afternoon to take in all the monument has to offer and to experience the views of Paarl. In summer time the monument also hosts a number of music concerts and events.
