Emotions in Black & White- Qutab Minar (Delhi)

Hello,

Hope everyone is doing fine out there. I know it’s been a while, but I am back with some pictures ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

I participated in a photo walk last month and strolled around Qutab Complex hoping to find some good shots. It was a sunny day and looked perfect for clicking. Each one of us was supposed to pick a theme and go start clicking. I chose Monochrome,ย so you see in the pictures below.

Itโ€™s a very good place for people photography where you can catch many different moments, throughout the different phases of life. The young and the old, the happy and the cold… they are right there waiting to be photographed.

Qutab Minar is located in Mehrauli, Delhi, India. Some details are below-

Nearest Metro Station: Qutab Minar

Entry Charges: Rs 10 for Indians, Rs 250 for Foreigners (as on Feb 2016)

No Photography Charges…Yeppiee!!!

Qutab Minar is the tallest brick minaret in India, standing tall at 73 meters and made of red sandstone and marble. Something interesting I read on Wiki: In 1200 AD, Qutub-ud-Din Aibak, the founder of the Delhi Sultanate started construction of the Qutub Minar. In 1220, Aibak’s successor and son-in-law Iltutmish added three storeys to the tower. In 1369, lightning struck the top storey, destroying it completely and Firoz Shah Tughlaq carried out restoration work replacing the damaged storey with two new storeys every year, made of red sandstone and white marble. Interesting! This tower is a part of the Qutab Complex and the other monuments that are a part of this complex are ย the Iron Pillar of Delhi , Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, Alai Darwaza, the Tomb of Iltutmish, Alai Minar, Ala-ud-din’s Madrasa and Tomb, and the Tomb of Imam Zamin.

I wonโ€™t be walking you through the monuments in this post, but some moments. Hope you like them.
