Qutub Minar is one of the most famous and unique ancient monuments located in Delhi, India. UNESCO has recognized it as a World Heritage Site. The tall minaret was constructed in 1192 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak, and later completed by his successor Iltutmish. The soaring conical tower is an exquisite example of Indo-Islamic Afghan architecture and is made mostly of red stone and marble with some very fine detail work visible only to a discerning eye.
I have been to Delhi many times but never got a chance to visit this iconic tower. Finally got a chance on our recent trip to India to spend a late afternoon at this site.
I am not very good at landscape Photography, but the tower and the surrounding structures and ruins are so intriguing that I could not help clicking some shots. Wish I could put a couple or a model there with some off camera lighting...may be next time with a bit of more advance planning.
There were many school kids there that day. One group got excited after seeing my camera, and I clicked some shots of them. Right after that, a group of boys approached me requesting to take their picture. They had no idea of how would they get the picture but just wanted me to click one. I obliged. Sharing some of those images here.
