My 2nd visit to Qutub Minar
Since my flight was scheduled at 4:45 PM to Bengaluru i had enough time to explore Delhi. Decided to explore Qutub Minar till afternoon. Shifted my luggage to Locker Room at New Delhi Metro station and boarded Metro train to Qutub Minar Metro station. Explored Qutub Minar for an hour and returned to New Delhi Metro station by 1:00 PM. This is my 2nd visit to Qutub Minar 🙂
Qutub Minar, Delhi: Qutb Minar, (also spelled Qutub Minar) at 73 Metres, is the tallest brick minaret in the world and second highest minar in india after Fateh burj at Mohali (Punjab). Qutb Minar, along with the ancient and medieval monuments surrounding it, form the Qutb complex, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tower is located in the Mehrauli area of Delhi, India. The Minaret of Jam, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in western Afghanistan, is thought to have been a direct inspiration for the Qutb Minar in Delhi, which was also built by the Ghorid Dynasty. Made of red sandstone and marble, Qutb Minar is a 73-metres (240 feet) tall tapering tower with a diameter measuring 14.32 Metres (47 feet) at the base and 2.75 Metres (9 feet) at the peak. Inside the tower, a circular staircase with 379 steps leads to the top. Qutb Minar station is the closest station on the Delhi Metro.
