Man Proposes to Girlfriend in Taj Mahal Made of Sand on the Jersey Shore

A man proposed to his girlfriend inside of a Taj Mahal made out of sand on the Jersey Shore this weekend.

The groom-to-be, Amit, contacted The Bikini Boys (of sand sculpture Chris Christie fame) and asked if they could build a Taj Mahal for the big proposal.

On Saturday afternoon, Amit unveiled the Taj Mahal to his bride-to-be. 

“Brenda, Will you marry me?” is etched in the sand near the sculpture.

Amit got on one knee and proposed to Brenda as family and friends watched on a beach in Seaside Heights.

“We are very happy to help make this dashing young man’s dream proposal into a reality,” The Bikini Boys said in a message.

They said it took about five hours to create the Taj Mahal sand sculpture. They even did a smaller trial sculpture last weekend and posted it to their Instagram page as a sneak preview of the coming weekend’s proposal.

The Bikini Boys usually build a sand sculpture every weekend near the corner of Carteret and Freemont avenues in Seaside Heights. 

Last month, The Bikini Boys built a giant sand sculpture of Gov. Chris Christie lounging in a chair after a government shutdown closed state beaches and parks for much of the Fourth of July weekend and a photo of Christie lounging on a state beach that was closed to the public went viral.
