QUTUB MINAR Come back over 1000 years on Qutub Minar Delhi tour
In this episode we travel back in history to visit Qutub Minar. Qutab Minar is a soaring, 73 m-high minaret built in 1193 and is surrounded by several historically significant monuments of the Qutb complex including the qutub minar iron pillar. This was forged 1,600 years ago (sometime in the 300s) and moved to Delhi before the mosque was built. It is 23 feet 8 inches high (7.2 metres) with 16 inches diameter. It is famous for the rust-resistant composition of the metals used in its construction.
Join us on the continuing story of our four week stay in New Delhi, India, where we spend time in an Airbnb apartment in Lajpat Nagar, and take side trips to Agra and the Taj Mahal as well as Jaipur.
