(Blog 2 in my series of blogs - Delhi Delight)
It was the first weekend in Delhi. Time to execute plans towards the "hidden agenda". Time to go out and explore. Time to become tourists and keep internship aside for a while. As it turns out, that my internship partner was as interested as me to explore the city. Even though it was not the first time in Delhi for either of us, we had never visited many places. It was the perfect opportunity for both of us to explore this city.
For the first weekend, we chose a popular historic monument that was visible from the floor of our lab where we worked. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, made of red sandstone and 73 m in height, the top few floors of Qutub Minar were visible from our lab. The tower of victory was built in 1193 by Qutub-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu kingdom.
