Qutub Minar still stands tall amidst all Ruins

Qutub Minar still stands tall amidst all Ruins
Qutub Minar was built with red and buff sandstone, chiseled with verses from Holy Quran and of course not to forget the detailed carvings of which this 12th century minaret can still boast of!
Tourists simply love visiting Qutub Minar complex and reasons are plenty. Couple of months ago I had posted a beautiful capture of this gorgeous monument with a small informative paragraph regarding the same, so, I won't repeat those generic facts on this historical architecture and request you to check those few lines by clicking right here. Today I'm posting few more shots of Qutub complex, of course with the Qutub Minar somewhere right or left in the frame... hope you like them. If you don't please oblige me with constructive criticisms. One more thing which I never forget to remind my friends, if you're visiting Qutub Minar keep good time with you. The entire campus well maintained by Archaeological Survey of India is good enough for spending two-three hours either with your camera on or your eyes. After all, Qutub Minar stands tall amidst all ruins in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites!

There are about 379 stairs to climb up to the top of this minar but it's prohibited for visitors.

Although there's a metro station with the same name I would suggest you to get down at Saket.
