Qutub Minar

This beautiful monument in the Mehrauli area of New Delhi was built in the 12th century by Emperor Qutub- Ud- Din- Aibak and was finally completed by his son-in-law, Iltutmish, who succeeded him. The monument is made up of 5 levels with projecting balconies on each level. The specialty of the monument is that each level is different from the others in terms of size and designs. This is what makes it even more spectacular. The verses from the Holy Koran of the Muslims are carved on the walls of the monument and the lattice work is remarkable too. The controversy surrounding this monument says that this was originally a Hindu monument, built much before the 12th century. It is also said that Aibak only renovated it by replacing the Hindu Stone designs with Islamic ones. Till now one side of the monument walls have Hindu designs on them and the outer part is adorned with ornamental Islamic designs. The monument has been damaged by natural forces and calamities many a times but has been repaired again and again. This is the reason why it stands strong even after so long.

(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.

The Qutub Minar, also spelled as Qutab Minar, or Qutb Minar, is the second tallest minaret in the world made up of bricks.
We reached Qutub Minar station by 2pm and we had to take an auto rickshaw till the tourist spot. The sun was bright and I was feeling down and down, tired, tensed too because we had to get back to airport by 4pm too. We roamed inside the Qutub Minar park and clicked pictures. Quickly we came out and had light snacks and booked an Ola cab to airport & didn't try metro again as we had very less time in hand. Finally we were there in airport by 3.30pm.
