The Might of Islam
The first stop in Delhi should be the Qutub Minar complex as it is the first Muslim incarnation of Delhi, built upon the the remains of the former longstanding Hindu city dating back to the Mauryans. The first Muslim conquerors wanted to show their might and victory over the infidels by constructing this grand minaret. As you explore Delhi, you will find that its history is like the layers of an onion. The Qutub Complex is the outermost layer to peel off laying on the outskirts of town and the Rathpath is the most recent vision of Delhi and is the final layer to peel away from the present.
