The paper focuses on the symbolism, myth and motifs of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. Brown had a fascination with a paradoxical interplay between Science and Religion. His novels had a leading character which includes historical themes and Christianity as Motifs which ends in controversy. The Da Vinci Code, endeavoring to discover the homicide of the Louver's custodian, Langdon experiences puzzling associations, Opus Dei and the Priory of Sion, which talks about the concealed messages in Leonardo da Vinci’s specialty, raises the plot into its top by discovering Jesus wedded Mary Magdalene and fathered a youngster, and by finding the Holy Grail. Darker's The Da Vinci Code was depicted as submitting style and word decision bumbles in relatively every passage. A significant part of the feedback was focused on Brown’s case found in its prelude that the novel depends on actuality in connection to Opus Dei and the Priory of Sino and that all depictions of fine art, engineering, records and mystery ceremonies in a novel are precise.
