Qutb Minar, Mehrauli



I started my day today with a 20 kilometre drive to Mehrauli to visit Qutb Minar, the minaret that symbolizes Delhi, just like Eiffel Tower is synonyms with Paris. The morning trip was fun as I returned to the monument after 20 odd years. I had first gone to the Qutb complex with the school trip when I was in class 1. It is as beautiful as I remember.

Below is a plaque that tells the visitors all about Qutb Minar.

Thanks Aradhana, Prachi.

Neha, the bird flying in the photo was a lucky coincidence.

Kris unfortunately for preservation reasons, the iron pillar can only be seen and not touched anymore. I did click a lot of photos. Would put them and then you can see what the human touch has done to the pillar.
