Story on Solomon’s Wisdom

King Solomon was renowned for his wisdom. He was a man of great intelligence. His name and fame spread all over the world. The Queen of Sheba also heard about him. So, she wanted to test his wisdom. The queen went to Solomon’s court. She took with her two garlands one of the real roses and the other artificial roses. But both of the garlands looked quite alike. The queen placed them on the table and said, “Oh wise king, please look at the garlands. Tell me, which one is of real roses.”?

Solomon thought for some time. It was very difficult for anybody to identify the real rose. Just then he saw some bees humming outside the window. King Solomon told his men to open the window. Then the bees came in and sat on the garland of real flowers. The king then pointed to that garland. The Queen of Sheba was greatly charmed at his wisdom. She said, “May God grant you a long life. You are really ‘Solomon the Wise’.”
