First Day in Delhi was crazy! The traffic and driving is definitely an organized chaos and there is a lot of wildlife roaming around such as dogs, wild hogs, parrots, and chipmunks! We were able to Uber around pretty easily and very cheaply which kept us out of the heat at least for a little. Here are some pictures from the things we saw today. #india#delhi#qutubminar#utastudyabroad#uta#architecture
The Chand Minar or the Tower of the Moon is a medieval tower in Daulatabad, India. The tower is located in the state of Maharashtra near the Daulatabad- Deogiri fort complex. It was erected in 1445 C.E by King Ala-ud-din Bahmani to commemorate his capture of the fort. Chand Minar bears resemblance to the Qutb Minar of Delhi and was inspired from it
The Chand Minar is considered to be among the finest specimens of Indo-Islamic architecture in Southern India. It is 30-metre high and is divided into 4 storeys and 24 chambers. A small mosque or praying hall sits at the base of the tower which is covered with Persian blue tiles. The Tower also displays some indigenous Indian architectural features such as the brackets supporting it's balconies The tower's height makes it visible from every corner of the Daulatabad Fort.
