On Saturday, I was wondering what to click and was really short of ideas. Then it struck me that the Qutub Minar would be a nice place for some great pics and I had never been there since I was in primary school. So I picked up my friend Pankaj from his office and we reached Qutub around 4 in the afternoon.
Qutub Minar was built by Qutb-u-din Aybak in 1193 century, but he died and only the basement was complete by then. His successor Iltutmish in constructed 3 more stories and it was finally completed with the fifth story completed by Feroz Shah Tughlak in 1368. It is 14.3 metres wide at the bottom and 3.8 metres wide at the top. It stands 72.5 metres high and was the tallest structure in Delhi for centuries. The Qutub Minar and other constructions around it are an example of the fusion of Persian and Indian architectural styles.
