Writing about the traveled cities or popular places do give us a track where all we have been traveling but on top of all reading the write up give you boost in your low times. Before you all wonder why am in writing this now, got some data recovered from one the hard drive, but the memories are super fresh.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site is in Delhi, India. The Qutab Minar, constructed with red sandstone, marble, lime mortar, and rubble masonry It is surrounded by several other ancient and medieval structures and ruins, collectively known as the Qutub complex
There are many reasons or facts came up "why Qutub was built "The most commonly accepted reasons are that in order to celebrate the advent of Muslim dominance in India the tall building was created.
So, it was lazy noon when we decided to visit Qutub Minar. It's easy to reach, Delhi metros are the best if you would like to travel within the national capital.
For the first time, we took the audio guide to visit the chambers to see the sequence of making the Minar. Noticing the iron pillar was one of the amusing facts to me – if any of you have noticed there is an iron pillar in the premises, the audio guide says that this is one of the mysteries why the pillar was created, however, it is believed that its symbol of unity and shows strength.
It became more interesting by the time we started taking round around the main building, so there are 380 stairs in the almighty statue. Success stories of multiple kings are written if you right to left from the building.
The Audio guide also talked about a bit about its tilt towards the Right a bit because of the lightning and lacking land water. Another reason is due to the immense Hight of the tower it becomes hard to repair it from time to time. According to the old books the surface of the Minar was last restored by Shah Firoz Tughlaq in 1988 afterward their minor correction has been done.
Facts were unleashing as we started heading towards the main Gumbo which is the center of Qutab premises, at the time of any war or emergency all the solider used to use the main Gummed to travel the underground staircase.
Yeah, which reveals the next fact there are underground ways which connect the Minar to another monument but its again a Mistry as we see there are no proven facts.
The massive garden has some of the oldest trees of the era and the best place to sit and relax.
Squirrels have occupied most of the area and you know people love spending time with them feeding them.
This monument holds Pride of India. Bringing the fact out, I see Qutub Minar in the top of the list when any expat plan to visit Delhi.
We had spent the afternoon lazing around and talking to people around looking at the mesmerizing pillars one by one, which made us release how rich we were in past times, without the technologies creating such a humongous architect.
One of the phenomenal example of ancient civil engineering.
Here are some glimpse for you peeps.
Let's not leave even a bit , keep sharing your experiences even the smallest.
