This morning we will be visiting two monuments which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Humanyun’s Tomb and Qutab Minar which depicts two famous rulers and dynasties – Mughal and Mamluk. We shall first visit Humayun’s Tomb built in the 16th century, commissioned by a devoted wife for her husband and took 07 years to complete. It was the first garden- tomb on the Indian subcontinent and also the first structure to use red sandstone at such a scale.
We then proceed to the Qutab Minar which is a minaret that forms part of the Qutab complex and is known as Delhi’s Eiffel Tower. Made of red sandstone and marble, Qutub Minar is a 73-metre (240 feet) tall tapering tower of five storeys. A 7 m-high iron pillar stands in the courtyard of the mosque and it used to be said that if you can encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it your wish will be fulfilled.
