The Phulpui graves are located in the Aizawl district of Mizoram. The main attraction here is two graves and the legend surrounded by it. These two graves are placed next to each other with a story of eternal love. The legend says, the Phulpui village chief Zawlpala married the legendary beauty Talvungi of Thenzaw. During those times polygamy was part of the culture; hence Talvungi subsequently married the chief of Punthia and Rothai. However she was not able to renounce her love to Zawlpala. On hearing the news of his death, the grief stricken Talvungi returns to the village and digs a pit next to Zawlpala’s grave and asks an old lady to assist her to kill her.
