Friday Fly Away – Qutb Minar Complex

Built in 1193, to announce the advent of the Muslim sultans in Delhi, this complex houses various buildings and structures depicting Hindu gods alongside flowing Arabic scripture.  The details of the structures and decorative designs are breathtaking.  Strolling through the archways and laying eyes upon the Qutb Minar (India’s highest single tower) will leave you in awe.  I love how history and art are often encapsulated in architecture. I am always honored to stand in the presence of these pieces of the past.
