To truly appreciate the experience, a brief insight into the overlooking monuments is a must. The Qutub Minar stands seven stories high as the first ever example of Islamic architecture in the Indian subcontinent. Upon victory, Qutub-ud-din Aybak, the first Muslim ruler of India, destroyed twenty-one Hindu, Jain and Buddhist temples and from their remnants built an Islamic center-point - - the Qutub Minar and its adjacent mosque.
Located in the Ambawata Complex, the bright yellow walls and Buddhist motifs create the perfect atmosphere to savor the aroma of fresh Thai herbs and a cocktail or a glass of wine. As you do so, remember to take a look at the turret that sprouts high from amidst the sheer greenery that surrounds you, or the local villages that spread across miles. It is the perfect blend of the ancient with the modern, and the local with the multicultural.
