This pictorial blog is a quick documentation of my visit to Qutub/Qutb Minar, Delhi, India on 1 November 2009 along with my parents and a friend and is a part of my soon to come Delhi travel and tourism blog.
This blog has all of the photos that I shot from my camera hurriedly in about 35 minutes. I could not spend a lot of time there thanks to lack of time and have missed many aspects of the monument. This will be useful for anybody looking for photos of Qutub Minar from an amateurish point of view. Feel free to leave a comment on any page. This pictorial blog is haphazard and does not follow any order or organization in presenting the photos.
This blog is solely for educational and recreational purposes. Please read more about me here and visit all my other blogs.
Here is about the Qutub Minar from Wikipedia:
The Qutab Minar (also spelled Qutb or Qutub, Urdu: قطب منار), a tower in Delhi, India, is at 72.5 meters the world’s tallest brick minaret. It is situated in the Qutb complex, amidst the ruins of ancient Hindu temples which were destroyed and their stones used to build the Qutb complex and minar. Construction commenced in 1193 under the orders of India’s first Muslim ruler Qutb-ud-din Aibak, and the topmost storey of the minaret was completed in 1386 by Firuz Shah Tughluq. The Qutb Minar is notable for being one of the earliest and most prominent examples of Indo-Islamic architecture.
