Made of red sandstone and marble, Qutb complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Mehrauli area of Delhi, India.
.
Why you should see it?
It is the tallest brick minaret in the world and is of great historical importance. The minaret is named after the conquerer of the Delhi Sultanate, Qutb-ud-din Aibak.

The Tomar dynasty founded Lal Kot in 736. Tomar Anangpal whose name is inscribed on Iron Pillar of Delhi at Qutb complex, ascribed to Chandra or Chandragupta II. Anangpal Tomar, who, according to historian Augustus Hoernle, was a Rajput ruler of Delhi, often described as the founder of Delhi, built the citadel some 10 kilometres from Suraj Kund. The Chauhan kings of Ajmer conquered Lal Kot in 1180 and renamed it Qila Rai Pithora.

Museum and remnants of the walls at Qila Rai Pithora, the first city of Delhi, founded during the 10th century by Prithviraj Chauhan
The Chauhan king Prithviraj III was defeated in 1192 by Muhammad Ghori. From 1206, Delhi became the capital of the Delhi Sultanate under the Slave Dynasty. The first Sultan of Delhi, Qutb-ud-din Aybak, was a former slave who rose through the ranks to become a general, a governor and then Sultan of Delhi. Qutb-ud-din started the construction of the Qutub Minar, a recognisable symbol of Delhi, to commemorate his victory but died before its completion.

Shanti Stupa - a Buddhist white-domed stupa (chorten) on a hilltop in Chanspa, Leh Ladakh, India. It was built in 1991 by Japanese Buddhist Bhikshu, Gyomyo Nakamura as a part of the Peace Pagoda mission. The stupa has become a tourist attraction not only due to its religious significance but also due to its location which provides panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. It was built to promote world peace and prosperity and to commemorate 2500 years of Buddhism. It is considered a symbol of the ties between the people of Japan and Ladakh. The Shanti Stupa features the photograph of the current Dalai Lama with the relics of the Buddha at its base. It is built as a two-level structure. The first level features the central relief of Dharmacakra with deer on each side. A central golden Buddha image sits on a platform depicting the "turning wheel of Dharma" (Dharmacakra). The second level has reliefs depicting the "birth" of Buddha, the death of Buddha (mahanirvana) and Buddha "defeating the devils" while meditating.

Wander here a whole summer, if you can. Thousands of God's wild blessings will search you and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go by uncounted. If you are business-tangled, and so burdened by duty that only weeks can be got out of the heavy-laden year ... give yourself to this precious reserve. The time will not be taken from the sum of your life. Instead of shortening, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal. ~ John Muir. 💕

For anyone with a curiosity for history and religion, this place is of great importance.

Patna - the land where the greatest emperors of India walked, and where the greatest saints chose to preach. . .
The ancient name of Patna was 'Pataliputra' and it was the capital of the Maurya and Gupta empires. It's the city with a glorious period of history spanning a thousand years (500BC-400AD) and saw the rise and fall of India's first major kingdoms. .

In this picture: Ruins of 80 pillared hall at Kumhrar.
The Mauryan pillared hall at Kumrahar was brought to light by excavations conducted by Archaeological Survey of India. In this excavation traces of 72 pillars were found. Further excavation exposed 8 more pillars of the hall and four additional ones belonging to the entrance or porch. Since then it is popularly refered as the 'Eighty Pillared Hall'. All the pillars were made of black spotted buff sandstone monoliths with a lustrous shine typical of the Mauryan period. Regarding the nature of this hall, it has been variously assigned as the palace of Asoka, audience hall, throne room of Mauryas, or the conference hall for the third Buddhist council held at Pataliputra in 3rd Century B.C. during the reign of Asoka.

Eating is probably one of the things Elephants can do for hours. Elephants make friends with people very quickly & feeding them some sugarcane or bananas makes the process even quick!
Hathi gaon ( Elephant village ) is a small village that was set up by the government in 2010 to give proper shelter and water facilities to all the families and their elephants that served tourists in and around Amer Fort during the day.
While elephants are flaunted at weddings, paraded everyday up to the Amber fort for tourism, to impart a regal picture to the tourists, the elephants actually live in a pitiable state. We strongly believe that they belong in wild and all animal kingdom should be respected. They too deserve a good life, just like us.
Though, we do not promote Elephant rides in our tours as a part of our contribution towards responsible tourism, but we can take you up close to them. You can earn their language, feed them, bathe them. Try and know this beautiful and intelligent animal.
