I belong to Ganganager, and there are no tall buildings in my hometown.
Here I would like to talk about the Qutub Minar, which is in the Mehrauli area of Delhi.
It is used as a tourist attraction nowadays.
It looks very beautiful.
It is 73 metres in height or 240 feet tall building.
The building is tapering towards the top.
The base has a diameter of 47 feet and the top has a diameter of 9 feet.
It is the tallest brick minaret in the world.
Inside the tower there is a circular staircase with 379 steps leading to the top.
Qutub Minar was built by Qutb-ud-din Aibak in 1200 AD
His son in law Iltutmish added 3 storeys in 1820.
The top storey was damaged by lightening in 1369 and was restored by Feroz Shah
I visited the Qutub Minar when I was in 10th.
I really disliked the fact that we could only see the Qutub Minar from outside.
Otherwise I like the building a lot.
We were told that the public access to the staircase had been banned as there was
some accident in 1981 in which 45 people including children were killed.
Our school organized a tour to Delhi.
We were 40 students and 4 teachers.
It was a five-day tour.
We visited many places in and around Delhi.
We visited the Red Fort, Jan tar Man tar and India Gate.
We did boating at the India Gate.
There was an International trade fair going on.
Our teachers took us there also.
We enjoyed a lot.
