The Eiffel Tour today stands as the beauty and the symbol of City of Love!
On the 31st of March in the year 1889, Paris witnessed the inauguration of the city’s dramatic icon.
This took place at the greatest “Exposition Universelle” in Paris.
The La Tour Eiffel was the main exhibit of the exhibition of Paris or the World’s Fair of 1889.
What was initially viewed as the ugliest building of Paris turned out to be the symbol of the city.
The tower bears the name of the engineer, Gustave Eiffel, who along with Stephen Sauvestre submitter this plan to take over this contest and determine its centrepiece.
This exhibit was designed and constructed to memorialise the centenary of the French Revolution and to establish the industrial expertise of the nation.
The iconic tower has been conventionally symbolised to mean ‘signify’ to come to stand for what they signify.
On a bright Sunday of 1889, Gustave showed around the, then, tallest tower in the world to the most prominent personalities.
Upon reaching the apex of the tower by ascending 1710 steps, the flag of France was unfurled to the 21-gun salute of honour.
The Eiffel Tower remained as the world’s tallest construction until the Chrysler Building had been formed in the NYC in 1930.
At the top of the tower, the famous and major Parisian sites are marked for clarification on terms of location.
Being the symbol of France in the world and the showcase of Paris, it captivates about seven million tourists every year.
It marked its place as the best example of modern architecture due to its iron element.
What had once intended to be a temporary structure to be removed after 20 years, stayed as the heart of every Parisian.
