12 November, 2021
I had been informed along with a few schoolmates that we had been selected to go somewhere for travelling. However,the catch was that we were not informed where. On February 22,the day we were to leave, we were told that we had been selected as the lucky few to explore the epitome of Mughal architecture—The Qutub Minar. The minaret,constructed with sandstone,stands as the world’s tallest brick minaret,at a height of 72.5 metres. Though construction work on the UNESCO heritage site was first initiated by Qutub-ud-din Aibak,it is believed that after his tragic death, it was completed by his descendant, Iltutamish. This is the very earliest example of Indo- Islamic architecture, which means that it is influenced of both Islamic and the Hindu styles of building. It has been said that it houses India’s first mosque,which is a factor that enhances the legend’s charm. All considered the sight of the Qutub Minar will make your jaw drop in awe and search for words in vain. It will leave you speechless, literally.
