I realize it has been a very long time since I’ve updated my blog and I apologize. Since my last post I’ve had many grand adventures in India and the rest of the world. Internet was very hard to come by in India and also Europe surprisingly- at least the places I visited.
Now I’m back in the states and have no excuse for not updating my blog. I’m very excited to share my journey through pictures with everyone. I’ll start from the beginning.
My wonderful travel partner, Chase Bray, and I stayed a few days in New Delhi before exploring the rest of the country. Bray had been living in India for 5 months before I joined him so he was a great travel guide and huge help.
The first place we visited was Qutab Minar. The tower has withstood the elements for the most part throughout the years as only other ancient structures and ruins are scattered around. It is the world’s tallest brick minaret with a height of 72.5 meters (237 Feet) and is the tallest tower in India. It’s one of the earliest examples of Indo-Islamic architecture in India.
It’s HUGE!! As you can see in the pictures. This was built in the 12th century and I can’t help but be amazed that they had the means to build such a giant structure. The top part of the tower did get damaged by lightning and an earthquake over the years but the respective ruler repaired the damages.
