Qutub Minar in Delhi – Keep Calm and Wander

Qutub Minar

The might of Qutub Minar in Delhi can be felt once you see it up close. The closer you are with this lone brick minaret, the smaller you become. However, there’s something about this ancient piece of masonry that makes it worth a visit when you’re in Delhi.

Aside from the towering minaret, there are other things around that could be of interest to you. Don’t look at the ruins from afar, but see them closer and you’re in for a surprise. The intricate carvings on columns and walls would leave you speechless. They’re works of talented people from the past who might have considered these as their masterpieces.

Qutub Minar is the world’s tallest minaret made up of piled bricks. It stands at 72.5 meters.

Gay Pride, Parties Attract Travelers to Delhi, India

Author: , February 6th, 2013

India Gay TravelDelhi’s rise as a “pink” destination can be attributed to the city’s increasingly liberal attitude towards homosexuality and growing numbers of gay-friendly and gay-only restaurants, hotels and pubs.

Bhuvan Mehta, who launched travel company Pink Escapes last year, has already conducted several tours that combine, what he calls, “destinations and pink adventures”.
