Humayun’s tomb is also a UNESCO World Heritage site and it is very beautiful in architecture. It was made by a wife for her husband. Taj Mahal is also very famous because it was made by a husband for a wife. Some people say that the Taj Mahal is the copy of Humayun’s Tomb because it is older than the Taj Mahal. It is not a complete copy of it for obvious reasons, but the design is somewhere inspired by Humayun’s Tomb. It can be called as the Taj Mahal of Delhi. After knowing this, I was willing to go on taj mahal day tours from delhi. It is made up in Persian architecture and Indian architecture. There is a very beautiful nature-oriented lush green garden. It is a highly visited spot by National tourists as well as International tourists in India.

Qutub Minar is the tallest minaret of the world. It is located in the Qutub complex. Qutub complex is very big. Qutub Minar is made up of only bricks. There are two types of stones which were used in its construction, namely, red sandstone and marble. It is 73 metres high Qutub Minar is a mineral which was made by many rulers. It was started by Qutub-ud-Din Aibak. Qutub-ud-Din Aibak was not able to complete the construction and then Iltutmish continued it. He built five storeys. It was Firoz Shah Tughlaq who built the top storey.

We often talk about technology and development. On journey to delhi sightseeing tour package by car, I was wondering how our ancestors managed to do the construction work at those heights. It was a great session of inspiration and knowledge.
