An Architectural Marvel
Aug 2021 • Business
We got a chance to visit this Marvelous site this August . This colossal structure stands tall at a little more than 70m making it the tallest Minaret in the world built only with bricks . It has such an astounding history that we are never taught about and tend to miss. The natural tilt that the structure has never ceases to amaze tourists who travel from far away places to visit this ‘Architectural Marvel’ . I sincerely feel that as the citizens of this country , it is of utmost importance that we take measures to preserve heritage structures like these. It’s admirable that structures like these were made in times when we did not even have the kind of technological resources we have today . On the whole , It was an amazing experience and would recommend the same to everybody .

Must Visit Place
Feb 2021 • Solo
One of the most famous places to visit in Delhi, it is a complex with quite a few structures. The Qutub Minar is the tallest minaret in the world made of bricks having a height of 72.5 meters. Another notable structure in the complex is the Iron Pillar which is famous for the rust resistant material used during its construction. Definitely worth a visit for a couple of hours.

We visited the Qutub Minar, a 72 meter high minaret , which is a UNESCO World Heritage, being built in 1200. This tower commemorates the victory of Mohammed de Ghor over the last Hindu ruler Prithviraj III.
We were impressed by this beautiful five floor tower, floors being separated by balconies. We saw that the first three floors were in red sandstone and the last two floors were also decorated with white marble. There were decorations on the tower, which are made of geometric patterns and inscriptions from the Koran.
A sumptuous and dazzling minaret!
