The Qutub Minar is literally a ten minute drive from my home. A site that showcases the architectural ability of the middle age India. I would definitely recommend this as an attraction that you can visit for a quick evening getaway.

We visited this monument and its grounds which had lovely gardens and fascinating architecture from the Mughal period. Well worth a visit and tour to hear the history of one king trying to one up another!
