India: Qutb Complex in Delhi

On Thursday I got three postcards: one from India, one from the UK and one from Spain.

The card from India shows the Qutb Complex in Delhi. The Qutb Complex is an array of monuments and buildings started in the 12th century. The most famous monument in the complex is the Qutb Minar (3), the tallest brick minaret in the World. The Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque (1) is the oldest mosque in northern India and the Alai Darwaza (4) is a masterpiece of Indo-Muslim art. The Qutb Minar and the other monuments in the complex are since 1993 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With a nice stamp:
Tadoba-Andhari National Park (from set of two) (issued 29-07-2016)

Thank You very much Vinay!
