I remember many young couples arriving at this sacred mountain top felt the excitement and each pair brought a pad lock from the vendors, who then carved their names on it. The pair would then pick a good spot and lock it on the chains of the stone pillars. It symbolizes everlasting union - that is until the monks decided the rust is getting too ugly or the metals got too much weight.
