3rd DAY - INDIA (NEW DELHI) - QUTAB MINAR II

by Antonio Gil August. 25, 2015 2953 views

Qutub Minar is a World Heritage Site and has survived the ravages of time impressively. The Minar of Delhi is surrounded by a lush green garden, which is an ideal leisurely place for visitors. Qutab Minar is the favourite destination of tourists. It is India's most visited monument attracting around 3.9 million visitors every year. It was hit by lightening couple of times and was damaged. The subsequent rulers repaired it. Thus it is standing mightily as it was before till date. The tower is so high that around 379 steps are needed to be climbed to reach the top.

Very pretty place. you saw so many interesting places, but the most interesing things there are people. In my opinion. Not only pretty and original women but just all people from that country.
