THE BRICK MINARET
Built in the 13th century by Delhi’s first Muslim Sultan, the Qutb Minar is an imposing brick minaret standing high to be the world’s largest. It’s actually India’s second tallest, but that doesn’t detract from the impressiveness of its ornately carved red sandstone. While it’s certainly something to see when you’re in Delhi, you’re unfortunately out of luck if you were hoping to enjoy the views from its uppermost level: the top, accessed by 379 steps, has been closed to the public since a lethal stampede in 1981. Nevertheless, you can always pose in-front it or admire the outer beauty as it looks equally astonishing even from the grounds as from the skies. But for that you need to come pay a visit to Delhi. If you are a foreigner then you must check in for cheap flights to Delhi.
