Qutub Minar, the tallest stone tower in India was conceived by  Qutubud-Din-Aibak as a tower of victory attached to Quwwat- ul-Islam Mosque. Qutubud-Din completed the first storey while the second, third and fourth were completed by his successor Iltutmish . The tower has a diameter of 14.32M at the base and about 2.75M at the top with the height of 72.5M and ascended by 379 steps. As a child, Qutub Minar was like a mysterious tower with powers for me . Now, all grown up I can never stop admiring the beautiful work done on the huge minar. Qutub Minar is not the only crowd puller their exists Iron Pillar which has a  remarkable property i.e  lack of corrosion which is attributable to the combination of several factors, among them the high corrosion-resistance of wrought iron, the climatic conditions in Delhi, and the likelihood that it was frequently anointed with ghee (melted butter), Sandersons Sundial , lanterns etc. It was amazing to see that everything was still the same as I had visited the place after so many years . Thanks to the GoUnesco team to make such an amazing task where I could revisit my a part of my childhood .
