Taal Monument


This distinct concrete structure was built in 1975 to commemorate the semi-centenary of Afrikaans being declared an official language of South Africa (separate from Dutch). Paarl was chosen as the site for this monument in honour of the community’s central role in garnering recognition for the language. Made up of various tapering concave/ convex members, the towering nature of the design aims to symbolise the varied importance that different languages, cultures, and events have had in shaping the Afrikaans language itself. The three linked elements at the entrance to the building represent the contributions of the West, Malays, and African people; with the main soaring obelisk representing the languages’ growth.
